First look at Notre Dame's Campus Crossroads project
The University of Notre Dame is unveiling its $400 million Campus Crossroads project to the media Friday.
After nearly three years of construction, the project brings academics, athletics and student life to one place: Notre Dame Stadium.
Those familiar with the project wants the public to know that although the construction is ending, the ongoing effort to build a stronger bridge between Notre Dame and the community is ongoing.
“We’ll be opening up the stadium to other events, concerts, other professional sporting events, even wedding receptions on the field,” said Dennis Brown, Notre Dame University Spokesman. “That will bring in an influx of people who will be using hotels and restaurants and gas stations and other services in the community. And so, lots of things that will spread out and create some economic impact in South Bend.”
On Sunday, august 20, three new buildings will also open to the community for the first time.
The Duncan Student Center to the west, O'Neil hall to the south and Corbett Family Hall to the east will be available for self-guided tours.
Starting at 3:30 p.m. that day, Fighting Irish fans can sit back, relax and enjoy a scrimmage game dubbed the "New & Gold Game." This open practice will be a way where the public can take in all of the new sights this nearly-completed project has to offer.
The public is also able to rent out spaces in those new buildings for meetings, weddings, etc.
