I went to nd so I'm an alum. My kids go to nd, so I see the value in it but what is going on? One of my kids comes home the other day and says he has heard sister has offered free tuition for some athletes to get them to stay??? That's crap!
The other thing is how is a guy like Devin Warmack allowed to push policy at und??? The guy is out recruiting kids to play w his kids and promising free tuition to their parents. This is BS. If my kids tuition goes up one dollar and there are kids going to school for free or kids that are being promised free tuition, I'm pulling them out!
I'm sick of this bullsh$t and I'm sick of watching Devin walk around like the king cause his kid can throw a football and dribble a basketball. People kiss his a$$ and the guy is a dumbbell!
Tell him to beat it, nothing's free here and let's get back to educating kids!

You are quick to put someone's name out there like that and his children for that matter. You say your a Alumni blah blah. Come out and say your own name if your so concerned. Your worried about Devin? Your obviously not really a ND person! You know nothing and these comments are all false. HATER....

Sister offering free tuition to athletes is nothing new. That has been going on for at least ten years. Pay attention. How much do you think a kid from Cornhill is going to pay to go to ND? The answer is zip. They have been getting a free ride for a long, long time.

And if you were a Alumni then you would know that no one goes to ND for free period.. The hating can't stop what's coming.

I think when ND gives them "scholarships" and then finds "sponsors" to foot the rest of the tuition then it is safe to say they they attend for free. This has been going on for years. Nothing new with this policy. It is a little disingenuous to post here as a ND alumni and pretend that this is all new to you. It wasn't a problem before Abraham left and it shouldn't be a problem now. I'm sure your tuition will go up again next year as it has in the past. If you send your kid to ND for the "quality" education and religious teachings then why would you be concerned that someone else is paying less (or nothing) than you. As long as you are getting what you pay for don't be concerned with what others are doing. That's just not Christian.

It wasn't a problem until you realize that your tuition is going up because of the stupidity of the admin w the football fiasco and the now desperate attempt to give kids free rides.... all while my tuition is going up! I pay the shot, u pay zero. Bs! We all knew it was going on but now it's in the publics eyes and its embarrassing!

This is absolutely true. Brabham pays absolutely zero. Warmack pays zero. Sister offered muha and jones free tuition to stay. Devin is trying to get kids to come to ND just to have enough kids for a team and telling these poor people that they wont have to pay. There is no way that brabham can attend and his little brother in the fall if sister didnt waive the tuition. She needs kids to have a team in the fall. Warmack will need good players to replace the ones that left. That school is so on the edge of disaster.

Since the Gilroy matter, the ND brand has suffered tremendously. If the administration continues to ignor the damage already caused, it will be too late for survival.
ND admin needs to come forth with an explanation to soothe the concerns of parents of prospective students before they choose alternative avenues for education.
It would seem that this should not have to be brought to their attention.

This post is more of the same from someone who didn't like that Byron Abraham left. This poster and others are now engaged in an effort to damage the school and every word you read from them should be taken with that bias in mind.

Athletes and other less fortunate children attending ND on scholarships and risng tutition was no problem last year but now that the football coach is gone it's a problem and embarrassment? What a hypocrite.

Here's a simple solution. Anyone who thinks they might be interested in sending their children to ND - contact the school and see what they have to offer. Ask all the questions you like. If you don't get answers that satisfy you then don't choose ND. Just don't listen to this small group of over-zealous Byron Abraham fans that have their collective panties in a bunch because he left and are now trying to destroy the school.

Sister destroyed it.... No one else. Place is in shambles and you people want to let kids go for free so you can have successful sports teams all while the tuition(s) I pay go up??? Wtf is wrong w you? I'm just saying as a parent I'm getting pissed off when I know these kids can't or don't pay and I pay more every year and volunteer my time for everything. I also never see any of these scholarship kids parents volunteering or helping w anything.
I'm telling u, if my tuition goes up I'm pulling

That solution is simple only if you are the ND admin whose intent is to ignor the damage and bury your head in the sand.
If ND does not take a proactive stance it will be the end of a tainted legacy.

People keep posting on here about the football coach and being fired because of the Gilroy kid benching and its so wrong and blah blah blah.
I don't think the coaches care at all about this. The ones who had kids at ND have now improved their kids school situation tremendously and ND did them a favor by blowing up the football program. The Abraham boy is going to Proctor and the Wilcox boy is going to Christian Brothers Academy! They both are so much better off by leaving ND and going to those schools.
The families that may have it worse off is those who decide to stay at ND if their kid has a dream of playing college football. It is very unlikely that they will have a better coaching staff than what was there, but that won't affect most of the students at ND.

Thats right. Go to notre dame and ask questions if you have an interest in going there. Ask why 2 prominent board members and long time nd supporters resigned. Ask why marion club president resigned and the club that funded scholarship money is folding. Ask why enrollment is at an all time low. Ask why a parent on the board gets upset because his kid didnt get in a game and gets the coach fired. Please by all means stop reading topix and go in that school and ask WHY . im quite sure you will come to the conclusion that this is NOT the place to send your kids. Go ask why a few athletes dont have to pay tuition and are going around town telling other people to come because the principle has to have them just to have a team. Please by all means go and ask .. go ask why their teachers arent certified. Ask if the physical education teacher even went to COLLEGE while public school teachers need master degree and nys certifications. Please ask about the science and math teachers and ask to see their certifications. Ask to see their avg SAT scores. Please people take the advice of these ND supporters. Go and ask
