PEACE LACROSSE BLOG: What made you choose this school?
COLIN VICKREY: Everything. At Notre Dame, you are truly getting the best of both worlds in the classroom and on the field. It is the most beautiful campus in the world. When walking around, I knew this was the place for me. Every building is designed with the same brick, almost taking me back in history, while having a modern inside. Everything is also on campus and is easily accessible by walking, making walking from classes to my dorm to practice easy. I also believe the culture of Notre Dame will fit me perfectly. I currently go to Culver Military Academy, which is thirty-five minutes away from Notre Dame. Having that convenience of still being close to Culver is also excellent.
