Into That Good Night

Author: The editors

About 14 years ago, Alumni Hall’s Rev. George Rozum, CSC, ’61, ’80M.S. set a record as Notre Dame’s longest-serving rector of a single dorm. Then he just kept serving and serving, a full 41 years before announcing in May that he’s moving out.


“I will greatly miss you — your faith, your energy, your friendships,” he told the men of Alumni in his email farewell, but at age 80, the time had come to rest in peace, so to speak. “I now need regular hours of sleep, so that I can maintain my good health, and this job, as wonderful as it is, does not allow for very regular hours.”


Rozum isn’t going far. He’ll be the priest-in-residence at Pangborn Hall next year.
