For anyone who was able to be a part of this past weekend in New York, I am sure you have many great memories from the pep rally, the concert at Times Square, or one of the many University events that took place. For me, my favorite memory was getting to meet many of our inaugural Corby members face-to-face at our first Corby member event. The Corby Society had the second floor of O’Brien’s on Friday night, and everyone enjoyed the pre-game celebration. O’Brien’s was a great host (thanks Cormac). Take a look at some of the pictures from the event and from the weekend in New York.
With the final home game upon us, we have exciting news for next year. The Corby Society home game will be the Navy game next October 29th. For this game, Corby members will receive priority access to purchase four tickets to the game, and will also be a part of a parking pass lottery as well. For those who have already joined, save the date!
A lot of people have asked, why did ND start the Corby Society? What do I get out of membership? In short, the Society will help the University bring in additional funding for current students. These funds will assist with things like scholarships, dorm renovations, new student programming, and a lot more. But the University also wants to give Corby members something in return.
One of the big benefits to Corby members is that they will have access to many of the different recognition society events that already take place. Things like the Prime Rib buffet dinners (which are delicious!) on football weekends, the Saturday morning “Chalk Talk” breakfasts as well as other events that take place throughout the year. If you’re really into football strategy and game plans, the “Chalk Talk” breakfasts are great as a notable Notre Dame personality will give an analysis of the upcoming game. The Corby Society will also be hosting its own regional events as an additional way to meet other ND young alums. Our first event is coming up, November 19, in Manhattan. Corby members and their guests will be invited to attend an exclusive gathering the Friday night before the Army game. This should be a great way to kick off the Society. If you’re interested in the Corby Society, feel free to give me a call at 574-631-1323.
Big news for the Corby Society, the first big Corby member event is planned for New York City! We will be having the event on November 19th, the night before the ND-Army game. Members and their guests are invited to join us at O’Brien’s Irish Pub, on 46th St. in Manhattan (www.obriensnyc.com). O’Brien’s is excited to have us, and it looks like it will be a great time. Members can attend for free, and bring one guest at no charge. Additional guests would pay $20 at the door. The reception will start at 8:30pm, and last until 10:30pm, with beer, wine, well drinks and appetizers provided.

Welcome to the William Corby Society, ND’s recognition society for young alumni. Thanks for visiting! We at the Annual Fund are excited about the launch of this brand new recognition society, the first new society to launch at Notre Dame in quite a few years. We decided to start this blog as a way to get some more information out to the ND community about the Corby Society and to keep the ND family up to date on what’s going on around campus and in the alumni community. We’ll be posting photos, videos, and lots of news from all over campus. First though, I want to share a little more info on the Corby Society: Continue reading
