Founded in 2016, the Notre Dame Real Estate Club (REND) is a student run organization created to expose undergraduate students to the field of real estate and illustrate its depth and importance. The Club educates members about numerous aspects of real estate, provides interactive tutorials on industry skills, and connects students with real estate professionals.

Club Goals:

  • Expand underclassmen interest in and exposure to commercial real estate
  • Assist students with career discernment
  • Help students find internships and full-time opportunities through alumni connections
  • Support students with practical skills for recruiting, interviews, and the professional world
