Game Watch - This person will focus on camaraderie events for the sporting life of our Fighting Irish. This individual may coordinate both in-person and virtual events around football, basketball, hockey and any other sports of interest. A true passion for ND athletics is a must! 

Young Alumni: This person will focus on outreach to recent graduates and programming directed at and relevant to young alumni (defined by NDAA as 10 years from undergraduate degree). Young alumni quite literally represent the future of our Club, so some activities should cross generational boundaries and/or span multiple aspects of our mission (e.g., camaraderie, community service). Young alumni are also best positioned to connect with current students from our region.
