Welcome

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.


We look forward to resuming many of our activities and group events during the 2021/22 year. Though the Covid-19 pandemic made gathering significantly more difficult, we found creative and safe ways to get together and keep our connections strong.  After all, we are a strong, resilient community that always looks forward to getting together – from the variety of interest groups to social events and service opportunities – the list goes on!   We are very hopeful we will be able to restart our normal activities in the fall.


Below, view our upcoming events. As a member, you can participate in any and all of the several activities and programs we offer.
