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.
As the 2020/21 academic year draws to a close, we take stock of the challenges and lessons learned of the past several months. Though the Covid-19 pandemic has made the idea of gathering significantly more difficult, we have 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! As we step into spring and summer, we will continue with virtual meet-ups and small in-person gatherings whenever possible. While we are not currently offering the same breadth of programs and events as usual, we are very hopeful we will be able to resume 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.
