Pangborn Hall

Pangborn Hall

Pangborn Hall was constructed as a men’s residence hall in 1955 and funded by philanthropic brothers Thomas and John Pangborn. One of four major buildings dedicated on campus in 1955, Pangborn was also Notre Dame’s fifteenth residence hall. It was converted into a women’s residence hall in 1992 and renovated 10 years later. For the past several years, the facility of Pangborn has served as host to other hall communities during their year-long renovations. In the 2020-21 academic year, Pangborn Hall will serve as host to variety of upperclass and transfer students at Notre Dame.

Daniela De Ciantis

Daniela De Ciantis

Formed as a Catholic educator, Daniela finds meaning and fulfillment in facilitating the holistic growth of individuals. Originally from Toronto, Ontario, she moved across the border and found both a home at Notre Dame and a mission: to help serve young adults during some of the most formative years of their lives. Daniela completed her undergraduate studies at University of Toronto, St. Michael’s College, majoring in Theology and a double minor in English Literature and Italian Studies. Afterwards, she moved to the country’s capital, Ottawa, where she earned a Bachelor of Education degree, and taught high school Religion and English. In pursuit of greater personal formation as a Catholic leader, Daniela moved to South Bend, where she most recently completed her Master of Divinity degree at the University of Notre Dame. Daniela served in a number of different ministerial roles in the last three years, some of which include time at Logan Industries, the Catechist Academy at the McGrath Institute, and serving as an Assistant Rector in Flaherty Hall for two years. 

Daniela enjoys running the lakes on campus, swimming in the ocean, and board games. She also enjoys all things hospitality, especially exploring the culinary arts, hosting dinner parties, and finding any opportunity to be in good company and share a laugh. 

“I am thrilled to be serving as a rector at the University of Notre Dame. It is a privilege and gift to contribute to the mission of the university cultivating the hearts and minds of students through communal living in the halls. I look forward to journeying with residents and helping them to grow into their most authentic selves."
