ND Listens caller Allie Rudin ‘20 spoke with Granny Lynn one evening and learned that she was coming to campus the following week for the very last time due to a recent cancer diagnosis. We wanted to make Lynn’s last trip to campus magical for her and her family. Fr. Doyle (the priest for Dillon Hall where her husband lived during his time at ND) and Allie met Lynn at the grotto to give her a gift and say a special prayer. This is what we strive to do for alumni, parents, and friends at ND Listens - listen to stories, learn how to improve relationships, and love by creating meaningful experiences.
