University of Notre Dame

The University of Notre Dame is a private research university.

On November 26, 1842, a French priest, Rev. Edward Sorin, C.S.C., and seven companions, all of them members of the recently established Congregation of Holy Cross, took possession of 524 acres that the Bishop of Vincennes had given them in the Indiana mission fields.

Father Sorin named the school in honor of Our Lady in his native tongue, "L'Université de Notre Dame du Lac" (The University of Our Lady of the Lake). On January 15, 1844, the University was officially chartered by the Indiana legislature.

Customer loyalty programs have been around since the late 18th century, when some U.S. merchants began giving their customers copper tokens that could be redeemed for future purchases. Today, similar rewards schemes are nearly ubiquitous, ranging from airline frequent flier programs to grocery store discount cards. Research has shown that these programs build brand loyalty and increase sales. They're undeniably popular: In 2016, American consumers held $195.4 billion in loyalty program points.
