Ryan Hall

Ryan Hall

Established in 2009, Ryan Hall is named in honor of the Ryan family and was built in the spirit of accommodation and accessibility for students with disabilities. With signature events such as Wheelchair Basketball, Relay for Life, and Caring Cats Clothing Collection to benefit St. Vincent de Paul Society of St. Joseph County, the women of Ryan are dedicated to serving the local South Bend community. One major tradition in Ryan occurs every Tuesday night when Ryan Hall’s Priest-in-Residence, Fr. Joe Carey, C.S.C., hosts Ryan Hall residents for “FJ’s," an ice cream and cookie social in his apartment in which all treats are baked from scratch. Ryan was last named Hall of the Year in 2013-2014.

Libbie Steiner

Elizabeth “Libbie” Steiner is very excited to be joining Notre Dame’s Residential Life family. She grew up in Portland, Oregon and graduated from Boston College with a Bachelor’s degree in Theology and a minor in Spanish. She then completed a Master’s degree in Theology at Notre Dame through the Echo Program in the McGrath Institute for Church Life. As an undergraduate at Boston College, Libbie was involved in many ministry activities, including promoting Ignatian spirituality on campus and social justice initiatives focused on immigration and climate justice. Through the Echo Program, Libbie worked at Saint Gabriel Parish in Indianapolis, where she was privileged to oversee the RCIA program and start a young adult ministry program. Through this work she developed a passion for encouraging young adults in finding their vocations.

In reflecting on why she feels called to serve in this ministry, Libbie said: “In my own journey of faith, being formed in authentic community was (and continues to be!) transformative. I am excited to accompany young women as they navigate the beautiful mess that is undergraduate life, and to help form a community that transforms. I feel privileged to have been given the opportunity to be part of the unique tradition that is Residential Life at Notre Dame. I am so excited to start this new chapter together with the Notre Dame community and my hall community.”
