Emma Ackerley

"I’ve explored my interests and what I wanted to do. I’m not afraid of not being on the most traditional path. Honestly, the things I didn't expect, or anticipate, have been most valuable. They weren't necessarily what I had planned, or what everyone would have done or thought would be the best thing for me. But with the amount of opportunities and experiences available, Notre Dame has been even more valuable than I ever could have expected."

Jasmine Mitchell

"Notre Dame has impacted me by opening doors to the world. Coming to Notre Dame, I didn't know that I was going to study abroad. It was always a dream."
