The University of Notre Dame family will come together on campus and around the globe on April 26-27 (Sunday-Monday) to celebrate Our Lady’s University during the second annual Notre Dame Day.

The celebration will launch at 18:42 (6:42 p.m. EDT), referencing the University’s founding year, on April 26 and end at midnight on April 27. The 29-hour live broadcast from LaFortune Student Center will share compelling Notre Dame stories from around the world, live interviews, celebrity guests, musical performances and much more. It also provides the Notre Dame family the opportunity to give back to specific areas of the University they love most through an online fundraising competition.
