“The idea about not coming back to NDA is bittersweet because we will be leaving to pursue a new chapter in our lives but leaving behind some of the best four years of our lives. I will truly miss the peers and staff of Notre Dame. Throughout the four years I’ve met some of the most brilliant and influential people, students and teachers, through NDA. Leaving behind the individuals that I admire will be tough, and college does not guarantee that the staff is as caring as the teachers here. Seeing a familiar face everyday was wonderful because it provided a sense of community that is unique to any high school experience. Overall, Notre Dame provided years of opportunities to develop relationships with so many great people, and I will miss all the individuals that made an impact on my life as well as my peers’.”
