Well known for its Fighting Irish American football team ("Do it for the Gipper," they once cried in memory of George Gipp, who played for Notre Dame from 1916 to 1920 and died tragically young), this independent institution treasures its Catholic heritage. More than 80 per cent of its 8,000 undergraduates live on campus in 29 residential halls.
