The Ladies of Notre Dame and Saint Mary’s College (LND/SMC) is a social organization for women affiliated with the University of Notre Dame and Saint Mary’s College, based in South Bend, Indiana. For the past 85 years, we have promoted the social and cultural welfare of our members, championed friendship with the ND/SMC family, and encouraged service to the University and College, and the community at large, through a number of supportive programs.


Attention members: Annual Fee Waived

As you know, we are a community that always looks forward to getting together, from the variety of interest groups to social events and service opportunities – the list goes on!  Unfortunately, the Covid-19 pandemic has made the simple idea of gathering significantly more challenging. We are finding creative and safe ways to get together and keep our connections strong. Our year will go on, with virtual meet-ups and small in-person gatherings whenever possible. However, we are not currently offering the same breadth of programs, events and activities as in years past.  Consequently, we are waiving membership dues for this academic year. In lieu of the dues, we encourage you to continue your support of the LND/SMC Scholarship Fund with a contribution payable to the school of your choice. More information can be found on the Scholarship tab (under Volunteering & Service) of this website. If you are interested in joining our organization, or need to update your current information, please contact Jennifer Velasco at jdv12@hotmail.com.
