Ryan Boccabella '16, Scholarship Recipient

"Being at Notre Dame was an enormous blessing for which I am thankful every day. The University is an unparalleled academic community that has helped me to grow in mind, body, and spirit.

"The academic opportunities at Notre Dame are incredible. My professors were brilliant, always excited to share their insights and understanding with us. My fellow students were really focused on fully comprehending the material. All of this has pushed me to think in different ways and learn as much as I could.

"But, of course, Notre Dame cultivates much more than our minds. There are so many excellent athletic programs. In our dorm, my section often came together to play football or basketball; the healthy competition has helped to grow our friendships. I was also able to feed my passion for hockey and running through interhall sports and to try new things-such as ballroom dancing and cycling-while meeting new people.

"Most important were the abundant opportunities to grow my relationship with God. The Grotto and Basilica are beautiful places to worship, the sacramental opportunities are abundant, and Campus Ministry provided great retreats and programs for students to deepen their faith. To see a community come together over the Eucharist is wondrous; I could always find a friend to whom I can talk frankly and deeply about our beliefs.

"Without assistance from the Florence Dailey Scholarship, none of this would be possible. I simply cannot express my appreciation enough for this gift."
