    I believe the two really visionary aspects of the creation of the Summer School in 1918 are (1) its focus on graduate education and (2) its being co-educational from its inception, both of which would be key to Notre Dame becoming a world-class university.

    Also, the nuns didn’t just go to class. See “Nuns’ Summer Theatre” in WASHINGTON HALL AT NOTRE DAME, 247-52, about the very active and creative summer theatre program in the 1950s which ultimately got them into TIME and LIFE, the original ‘sister act.’
