By your lives and your goodness, you have changed the world in many ways. --Father Theodore M. Hesburgh, C.S.C.More  To all the daughters of Notre Dame, I would like to say I cant tell you how proud I am of the fact that you all bear Notre Dame degrees. By your lives and your goodness, you have changed the world in many ways. --Father Theodore M. Hesburgh, C.S.C.  * In honor of the 90th birthday of retired president Father Theodore M. Hesburgh, C.S.C., University of Notre Dame undergraduate alumnae and campus celebrities thank him for the gift of coeducation and discuss its impact on their lives.Thanking Father Ted: Thirty-Five Years of Notre Dame Coeducation contains more than 150 letters from alumnae worldwide, from Notre Dames first woman undergraduate degree recipient in 1972 through women recently admitted to the class of 2011.
