Each year there are several posts every week asking about what time various events occur during the weekend. Last year I went through various sites and sources and compiled in one central location everything that goes on during the football weekends. There's also some information for events that are not massively broadcasted. It may be difficult to hit every item on this list in one weekend (especially multiple since things take place at the same time) but that's why you come back more than once.

Please take a look, feel free to add any comments, make any corrections or add anything else that takes place around campus. Thanks.

Ops - Please tac this to the top of the board for everyone to use. Thank you.

6:00 PM - 7:00 PM Pep Rally Joyce Center Must acquire tickets (free): They usually distribute them at the ticket window on the east side of the football stadium at 5:00 pm. People will start lining up at 4:00 pm. The line could well extend entirely around the football stadium, but you can still get tickets even if you are halfway around.
12:00 AM Midnight Drummer's Circle Infront of Main Building Every Friday at midnight, before home games, the ND Band drum line assembles at the foot of the Main Building stairs to play drum cadences. Hundreds of fans and students gather and chant responses to the various beats. It makes for a late night, but it is a unique experience and well worth it if you can stay up that late for an impromptu pep rally. It lasts about 45 minutes. The best view is from the steps of the Main Building.

Also, if you are staying in the Main St. Mishawaka area or in downtown South Bend or arrive on the South Shore, look into the off-campus shuttle

While on campus Tailgate / Walk around campus Campus Get a burger or brat from one of the student run concession stands throughout campus. The money goes to whatever club, hall or organization is running that particular stand. It can also be good to buy a steak sandwich from the Knights of Columbus on campus. Or you can enjoy a little tailgating, which is a hallowed Notre Dame tradition

Drummer's Circle Bond Hall
1:40 PM/2:40 PM Band Inspection and Marchout Originates infront of Main Building to Notre Dame Stadium Just before heading to the stadium, the band assembles for a quick inspection. See the band march from either on the sidewalk next to them, or from up in the stadium on the second level looking out in front of DeBartolo as they come to the stadium with the huge crowd behind them. Both are neat experiences.
Team Stretch and Warmup Notre Dame Stadium The team jogs out into their lines for stretching. Once the lines are formed and stretching begins, Charlie walks down each line and shakes the hands of every player on the team. Its a cool sight to see if you aren’t out watching the band.
