Welcome Weekend at the University of Notre Dame, invited First-Year students and their families moved into dorms, and got acquainted with campus.
A huge part of that was getting familiar with the area and finding great locations to hang out and get food. Which brought many families to Eddy Street Commons.
Home to a variety of businesses, like Purely Pressed, where owners said they always look forward to students returning to campus.
“They’re very excited, because like the new school year and they’re excited about things to come, and of course there’s new freshman every year, so they’re excited to check out the new local areas, and what they have to offer, so that’s exciting as well. We probably see like three times as many people this time of year than we do through the summer, the off months, which is, again, wonderful,” said Reid Stichter, an Owner of Purely Pressed.
