The earliest stage of formation takes place in Old College — the oldest remaining building on the Notre Dame campus. Most collegians enter as college freshmen, although some may transfer into Old College as sophomores or juniors. Men typically spend up to three years at Old College before transitioning to the Postulant Program at Moreau Seminary as seniors. At Old College, collegians are free to follow any academic discipline they wish.
