“If you’re thinking about going to Notre Dame, it’s a very special place. I really have a hard time describing it – you just have to go for a Campus Day Visit and see it for yourself. I think parents sometimes only think about whether it’s a great hockey school. Well, it is a great hockey school and a great place to start your hockey career. It’s also a great education, but it’s so much more. It’s really a great school of life. When you go to Notre Dame, you leave with so much more than you can ever imagine.”
