For those not in NDR, could you describe what the annual We Love July (WLJ) event is all about?
Since coming to the University of Notre Dame, it has always seemed like July was a good time to step back, assess accomplishments of the past year, and prepare for the coming year. Although most NDR staff are busy year-round, business seems a little less urgent in July, making it the best time in the academic year to celebrate successes, get excited for the future, and look forward at the big picture.
The WLJ celebration is our way of doing that. NDR employees and their families are invited to spend time with one another in an enjoyable, relaxed atmosphere. Besides recognizing staff for their achievements, the event is meant to be light-hearted and fun. In previous years, the WLJ party has included a picnic at McCourtney Hall and a barn party at a park, for example. There is always food and entertainment for all ages.
July also happens to be my birthday month so I have many fond memories of fun in July! Who wouldn’t love to throw a big birthday party with all of their wonderful colleagues?
