Catching Up With… Ruth Riley (’01)

Aug 18, 2014, 1:40 PM EDT

The Notre Dame Alumni Association welcomed Irish women’s basketball alumna Ruth Riley (’01) to its “Catching Up With…” series on Monday afternoon. One of the all-time greats to ever wear the blue & gold, Riley retired from basketball in June following a 13-year WNBA career, and just a couple of weeks ago, began classes in Notre Dame’s Executive MBA program in the Mendoza College of Business.

During the Google Hangout, the Macy, Ind. native reflected on her time at Notre Dame, what it’s like to be back on campus, and some of her future plans, which might even include making her Bookstore Basketball debut. If you missed it earlier, you can watch the full interview below.
