The trip of a lifetime
"... . I was the No. 1 junior tennis player in Ireland at the time and my Dad and I were looking at the best option for me to pursue my academic and athletic career. Ultimately, Notre Dame was the obvious choice for me, not because of the 'Fighting Irish' nickname, but because once I set foot on campus and experienced everything the campus had to offer over a 48-hour period, I knew it was the only fit for me."
Barry King (BBA '07)
