Badin is situated on Notre Dame’s South Quad, between Howard (another women’s hall) and Coleman-Morse (an academic building). You can trip out of Badin’s side door and end up in South Dining Hall, which is nice for those South Bend winters! We have four floors and lots of character, and are the only dorm on campus with a porch. We also have a great view of St. Mary’s lake from the “lake” side of the building, and there are four rooms on the fourth floor with skylights and great views of the Golden Dome.
Our mascot is the bullfrog (in case you haven’t already figured that out), and our color is green (but we like to throw accent colors like pink and navy in there when we can). We made Notre Dame history by becoming the first and only hall to win the prestigious Hall of the Year award two years in a row—for the 2009-2010 and 2010-2011 academic years. We’re known for being tight-knit, but are always looking for new ways to strengthen our community.
