When Matt Cashore is photographing a Notre Dame game, he's an employee, not a fan. But everyone makes exceptions to the rules sometimes.
Eight years ago I stood in a corner of the LaFortune main lounge and photographed people watching the swearing-in of President Barack Obama. I recently retrieved that photo from my archive with the thought of re-visiting the same spot as President Donald Trump took the oath of office.

He wasn’t supposed to look. When U.S. Navy Lieutenant Commander John Hiltz ’02 roared over Notre Dame Stadium in his F/A-18 Hornet before the November 2, 2013, Notre Dame-Navy game, he may have had the most enviable view of campus on a football Saturday.
The long, snowy South Bend winter has taken its toll on residents and students alike, but the Basilica of the Sacred Heart had an unexpected casualty this week.

This summer construction crews will transform the Joyce Center Arena into the Purcell Pavilion. In addition to the new name, the arena will get a new main entrance, new seating — no more bleachers — and a general “facelift” for the facility, now in its fifth decade.…
Late in every spring semester there is one day when the warming weather becomes irresistible and dozens of classes seem to spontaneously and simultaneously decide to go outside.

Professor Bill Goodwine and his “Differential Equations, Vibrations & Controls 2” engineering class decided to bring the board with them as they enjoyed the warm weather in the pergola outside Fitzpatrick Hall of Engineering.…

After a month of lake-effect snow and single-digit temperatures, the weather abruptly changed gears, and Notre Dame enjoyed temperatures well into the 50s. The campus virtually exploded in a frenzy of spring fever. Even with melting snow piles still lining the sidewalks, the air above South Quad was filled with Frisbees, footballs and baseballs as the muddy but happy students enjoyed a brief break from the Northern Indiana winter.…
