president's notes

Welcome to San Diego!  As the country's second largest Navy town, and home to more than 1,500 Notre Dame alumni, San Diego is a natural fit to host this year's game.  Add to that our first-in-class craft beer industry, mouth-watering taco shops, and abundant sunshine ... we can't wait to share our home with you!!!

Stay Classy, and Go IRISH!
