Manista Parents

As we reflect on the time that our daughter Sydney has spent at the University this school year, we feel excited and thankful. Like you, we look forward to hearing about her life in Farley Hall, new friendships, inspiring professors, and her involvement in Notre Dame traditions new and old.

This Spring, we have loved hearing of her involvement in the Society of Women Engineers, inter-hall flag football, and the Farley mass choir. In these conversations, it is clear to us that these distinct Notre Dame moments, coupled with a world-class education, are what the Notre Dame education is all about -- educating the mind, body, and spirit.

For this reason, we feel blessed that we are able to help make these opportunities possible for all students through our annual gifts to the University. Please join us in a commitment by making a gift to benefit not only our children, but all students who live under the Golden Dome.

Wishing your family all the best, as together we share the pride and joy in watching our children grow into young women and men who will be leaders in our world.

Yours in Notre Dame,

Ray & Dawne Manista
