Always A Lancer

Always A Lancer
Posted on 04/29/2020
Always a Lancer was launched in March of 2020 as a campaign to invite members of the Notre Dame family to support and strengthen our bond as we move through the COVID-19 pandemic.  Our goal is simple: to encourage, lift up and lean on one another as we walk through this very uncertain time in our world.  We invite all members of the ND family:  students, parents, alumni, grandparents, friends, community partners and benefactors to participate in our various activities.  The phrase "Once a Lancer, always a Lancer" has been a part of the ND fabric for decades and now more than ever Lancers need one another.     
We hope that you will walk with us.

Tuesday, Nov. 10: Stress - What It Does & How to Combat It

Hager Health and Natural Wellness Center, will teach us about how stress
impacts our body’s major health systems and what we can do to combat it.
