The College of Arts and Letters, the oldest and largest of Notre Dame’s colleges, has its headquarters in O’Shaughnessy Hall. Roughly 40 percent of undergraduates are part of Arts and Letters, which offers more than 25 majors. That makes this building, nicknamed O’Shag, a busy nexus of departmental offices and classroom space.
The first floor features Waddick’s, a popular coffee shop for studying between classes, as well as a small art gallery that displays student work. The hallway walls are lined with flyers advertising lectures, academic programs, and weekend events. You may recognize the hallways from their prominence in the movie Rudy.
