From mobile apps, to cooling centers, to cell-phone-charging stations, Notre Dame is gearing up for the first home game
The university has added more golf carts and people to their courtesy cart shuttle program. The drivers will be wearing green jackets and white hats, and are available on Fridays and Saturdays during home game weekends.
It is a free taxi service to help those who have difficulty getting around campus. It is all part of being service oriented at Notre Dame.
“Obviously, we are all here for the game on the field, but there's so much to offer at Notre Dame that we want the experience to reflect that,” said Mike Seamon, director of game day operations. “So we are always open, we want to be hospitable, welcoming to everyone who is here. No matter who they are cheering for.”
Also, to help visitors feel more comfortable, Notre Dame has invested in cooling stations that will be set up around the stadium. They are misting areas similar to those seen at a marathon.
New this year is also a more fan-friendly mobile site. It allows visitors to map out their weekend while en route to the game and when they're on campus.
And in the stadium, are cell phone charging stations. They will be located throughout the campus on football weekends So you can charge up your phone. During the game., they will be moved into the stadium concourse..
Officials estimate that one minute of battery charging can give 3 minutes of battery life back .
