Commencement Song


Carol Elliott | May 17, 2019

The 2019 undergraduate graduating class of the University of Notre Dame’s Mendoza College of Business will celebrate commencement with special memories, maybe a hug from a faculty member — and their own music video.

As part of the ceremony, the College will show a video collection of campus memories set to the music of a song written by a fellow student especially for the May 19 occasion.

Nich Lampson, a junior majoring in business analytics and industrial design, wrote “How Gold?” — a reference to the figure of Mary atop the University’s famed Golden Dome — to remind students of the Notre Dame’s holistic, faith-centered educational experience and legacy even as they prepare to graduate and chase all their “high-held dreams in life.”

The video presents a collage of images of some of the students’ favorite campus scenes, interspersed with portrait shots of seniors and faculty members. The song is performed by Lampson and fellow student musicians Sean McMahon, a senior IT management major, and Josh Morgenlander, a junior majoring in pre-professional studies in the College of Arts and Letters.
