Join us for this year’s Niebuhr Center Teach-In, “TOUGH Like Rudy: Teach. Overcome. Unite. Grow. Heal.”

The subject of the football drama “Rudy,” Daniel “Rudy” Ruettiger has inspired generations with his iconic story of beating the odds to achieve his dream of playing football for the University of Notre Dame. At Elmhurst, Ruettiger will share his compelling story and also will discuss the importance of mental self-care, including the power of reframing thoughts toward positivity, inspiration and encouragement.

Admission is free but reservations are required (due to limited seating).

Reserve Your Spot for 2/23

Catch the Movie!

Later that evening, Elmhurst University will host a free screening of Rudy, starring Sean Astin in the title role of the 1993 blockbuster film based on Ruettiger’s journey to Notre Dame. The movie will begin at 6:30 p.m. in R.A. Faganel Hall. Admission is free and no reservations are required.
