First Year of Studies ND Ignite Engagement Initiative

The University of Notre Dame First Year of Studies has designed ND Ignite as a group of events and activities which engage first year students in meaningful interactions with Notre Dame faculty and resources.  By participating, these students contribute something of their own to our intellectual and cultural communities.   By choosing to document and reflect on these experiences in an online portfolio, students create enduring evidence of their exploration and growth throughout the year.  Strong portfolios can earn students the digital badges below, which celebrate and confirm the skills learned through these activities and the intitiative it took to do so early in a college career.

The main ND Ignite badges are below; click a badge to learn more.
