I lived in Walsh Hall, the second oldest dorm and first dorm to convert to housing females. We have the fall frolic and spring formal dances, much like all of the other dorms. My favorite would be Alumni's wake week.
All same sex dorms. No frats or sororities but your dorm kind of acts like one. All have great traditions!

Ah, dorm life-finding food in strange places; living so close to your neighbor that you can actually hear them snore; dealing with the constant presence of a roommate's significant other; avoiding the rector at all costs; wearing a dorm shirt every time you're out of clean clothes. Students agree that no Notre Dame education would be complete without a stay in the dorms. Freshmen are not allowed to pick either their dorm or their roommates, but the majority feel that the University does a fairly good job in making the final decision. If a student is unhappy with the dorm in which they were placed, they have the freedom to be pulled into another dorm or to move off campus after they reach their sophomore year.
There are 27 dorms on campus, and all are single-sex and subject to parietals, which are the only hours when members of the opposite sex are allowed to visit. Of the 27 dorms, there's really no clear student preference. While the older dorms seem to be favored by some because of their traditions, the luxury and comfort of the newer dorms are preferred by others. Whether old or new, student pride runs rampant throughout the dorms.
