The South Bend and broader Michiana area offers impressive opportunities for individuals and families. The most notable example can be found just up the street from our primary campus. It is the University of Notre Dame. In addition to the obvious opportunities to enjoy the university's sports and recreational attractions, there are numerous cultural and educational advantages as well. A comfortably sized community, South Bend provides ample high quality and affordable housing. In fact, the overall cost of living is exceptionally modest, especially in comparison with larger cities. The city also offers a multitude of fine dining options, entertainment, attractions downtown, along the historic St. Joseph Riverfront and in adjoining neighborhoods. The Lake Michigan shoreline is just 45 minutes away and affords an outstanding array of spectacular sunsets, beautiful beaches, sailing, unique village shops and stores and so much more. And if the big city beckons, downtown Chicago is just 90 minutes away — and convenient by either car or train.
