300 Miles in the Footsteps of our Founder

Notre Dame commemorated its 175th anniversary with a variety of events, highlighted by the Notre Dame Trail, a 300-mile reenactment of the journey from Vincennes, Indiana, to South Bend by the University’s founder, Rev. Edward F. Sorin, C.S.C., and Holy Cross Brothers in November 1842. Other anniversary events included multiple presentations of a one-man play titled “Sorin: A Notre Dame Story” and a 3D video of the University’s history that was projected onto the Main Building.
