Holy Cross College is a Roman Catholic, co-educational, residential institution of higher education in Notre Dame, Indiana. The college was founded in 1966 and is administered by members of the Congregation of Holy Cross.



The college’s baccalaureate program consists of four requirements that take students outside the classroom: a service learning project, a professional internship, an international experience and a senior capstone presentation. Each student completes the same multidisciplinary core of courses, and then electives can be taken that will allow each student to gain knowledge and experience in areas of choice. Students have a major advisor, and those pursuing optional academic concentrations have a co-advisor.[2]

Currently accreditation at the Baccalaureate level includes nine Bachelor of Arts degrees: Liberal Studies, Business, Theology, Visual Arts, Communications, English, Psychology, History, and Education with dual licensure in Elementary Education and English as a New Language (ENL). The college also offers an Associate of Arts in Liberal Studies.[3]

Student life

Campus ministry is described as "Distinctively Catholic, Open to All"[4] Mass is offered on weekdays at 12:25 p.m. and Sundays at 8:00 p.m. GLORY is a Eucharistic Praise and Worship Holy Hour that precedes regular Eucharistic Adoration[5] on Tuesday nights.

The Mission Team is a faith development program. This team forms a critical mass of faith-filled students who contribute dynamic leadership and vitality to the school. They act as a catalyst for stirring up the interest and spiritual yearnings of the rest of the college. [6]



Holy Cross has five residence halls for students. Pulte Hall and South Hall are apartment style housing; Pulte is an all male dorm and South is co-ed. Anselm Hall, home of the Athletics, and Basil Hall are male dorms, and James Hall houses females.


Holy Cross athletics include cross country, golf, men's ice hockey, men's lacrosse, basketball, cheerleading, soccer, and men's baseball. The college completed a new recreation center in October 2008.
