Welcome Weekend Captains

Terese Schomogyi – Hall Captain

tereseHey hey hey Wildcats, welcome to the greatest home under the dome! My name is Terese and I’m a junior Political Science major with minors in Peace Studies and Sustainability. I’m also in the Glynn Family Honors Program. As much as I love Notre Dame and Ryan Hall, my true home is Tacoma, Washington, a city just south of Seattle (if you ever want to talk about mountains, the awesomeness of rain, and/or how the West coast is obviously the best coast, I’m your girl). I’m spending most of this summer on the Kenai Peninsula in Alaska interning with an environmental non-profit, and last summer I stayed on campus to be a Mentor-in-Faith for the ND Vision high school theology conferences. Some of my favorite Notre Dame experiences so far have happened during my shifts at ND Listens (a job that lets me call alumni and hear all about their passion for and memories of Notre Dame) and on immersive seminars with the Center for Social Concerns (I highly, highly recommend checking out the Appalachia and Urban Plunge seminars during fall, winter, and spring breaks!). When I have extra time, I love reading, running and practicing yoga, drinking copious amounts of coffee (it’s a healthy addiction, right?), and having life chats anytime and anywhere. Come hang with me in Ryan 212 – my door is always open to you! So hyped to meet you friends! Go ‘Cats, go Irish!!

Kate Mulshine – Junior Hall Captain

kateHey there, Wildcats! Welcome to the greatest dorm ever!! My name is Kate Mulshine and I am a sophomore studying Pre-Health and Psychology as my goal is to go to med school one day. Even though I truly feel that Ryan is my home, my hometown is Chesterton, Indiana. However, my family moved to Chicago, IL last fall. In progress toward my lifetime goal, this past summer, I was fortunate to work in my new city at the Ability Lab where I was able to work with and be inspired by some incredible people. In Ryan, I try to participate in every interhall sport, whether it’s flag football, basketball, dodgeball or anything in between! I love competing for our amazing dorm on the field/court. I’ve played sports my whole life and love staying active (if you ever want to talk/watch sports, or go and shoot some hoops let me know).  Outside of academics and interhall sports, I enjoy going for a run, shooting baskets, a trip to the grotto, baking, chilling with friends, listening to music, or watching The Blacklist or Riverdale. You can find me on Tuesdays in our resident priest’s (FJ, the coolest guy ever) room baking, please come and bake it is so much fun! Come and see me anytime, I’m always willing to chat! I can’t wait to get to know all of you! Welcome Home!

The Welcome Weekend Captains will be joined by a staff of amazing ambassadors who all can’t wait to meet you and welcome you all into your new home!
