Keough Hall Events

From ice skating to pancake flipping, an athletic competition with our brother hall to a full on cookout, the Keough Hall Welcome Weekend staff have some amazing events ready for you.  These events will engage you with your new Hall Staff, first-year students from other dorms, and some talented Keough upperclassmen. And at the end of the weekend, we hope you will begin to see Keough for what it is: your new second home.

University Events

The University of Notre Dame's Orientation Steering Committee does an excellent job planning events for Welcome Weekend.  Events like the Official University Welcome and Domerfest have been passed down for yearsand for good reason.  They have inspired and engaged many men and women before you.  Other events, like the Day of Community, offer a promising new look into what it means to be a member of the Notre Dame community.  A detailed schedule of events is available below, and on the Welcome Weekend website.
