With 81,000 square feet of space for some 340 students, Dillon is the largest dorm on campus. Built in honor of Rev. Patrick Dillon, Notre Dame’s second president, Dillon’s stone carvings include saints, animals, student athletes, and a Viking ship. The dorm’s chapel was dedicated to Knute Rockne, who had died just months before the dorm was opened in 1931.
The hall is famous for its Pep Rally, held annually the Thursday before the first home football game.
