Welcome Weekend 2015 Info

The Welcome Week Staff and the entire PE community is just BURNING with excitement to welcome you into our Pyro family! To make your transition into life at Notre Dame even easier, we have compiled a handbook outlining everything you need to know about Notre Dame, dorm life, and the fabulous South Bend, Indiana. This will be your go-to guide to getting accustomed to your new Home Under the Dome.
