Notre Dame picnic attracts thousands

Thousands gathered on Notre Dame's campus Tuesday evening for a welcome back event. Students and staff, families and friends, filled a plate and enjoyed each other's company.

“Chances are I won't be back for another one of these. I can't even imagine I'm not going to be around to do something like this,” said Notre Dame senior Doug Schlarman.

“This is my second picnic and it’s better every year. It's wonderful to be out here celebrating,” added Cindy Proffitt of Notre Dame’s staff.

A mass earlier in the evening also allowed students and staff to come together to celebrate the start of the academic year.
