Ever Wonder Why It's Called Angela Blvd.?

Angela Blvd., the road that leads most visitors to the campus of the University of Notre Dame, is named after Mother Angela Gillespie, the long time Superior of Saint Mary's Academy -- now called Saint Mary's College, Notre Dame, IN.

Mother Angela served as a nurse for the U.S. Army during the Civil War -- she and more than 80 other nuns left the school and their congregation to serve our country, over that four-year period in American history.
