There are endless opportunities to engage and build a life in the Notre Dame community, where so many are invested in the successful establishment and integration of our international students and their families.
There are "getting settled" considerations for day to day life, like how to get a license, access the bus system, or file tax forms, as well as questions about how to build a foundation and community, like where to find a place of worship, where to connect with friends over a meal, or what options are available to talk through feelings of overwhelm or loneliness.
Students with families may want to know how to find a school for their children, how to access the engaging resources of the St. Joseph County Public Library, or how to participate in activities available through the South Bend Parks, Venues and Arts department.
