A live streamed event. 

Join Dean Vicky Wilkins and Sean Austin for a screening of Rudy. Sean will offer insight and commentary on the film.

Rudy Ruettiger (Sean Astin) wants to play football at the University of Notre Dame, but has neither the money for tuition nor the grades to qualify for a scholarship. Rudy redoubles his efforts to get out of the steel mill where his father works when his best friend dies in an accident there. Overcoming his dyslexia thanks to his friend and tutor, Rudy gains admission to Notre Dame and begins to fight his way onto the school's fabled football team.
