I actually almost missed the Notre Dame question, and I live barely an hour away from South Bend. Just goes to show I really need to start thinking about colleges; better yet, find out where they're located.

That Journey song always bugged me. Grew up in the suburbs of Detroit and can tell you there is no "south Detroit". Detroit has a east and west side and an area known as southwest Detroit. Apparently Steve Perry wrote it about a suburb called Southfield, which is actually north of Detroit.

There is a University of Notre Dame Australia in Western Australia and New South Wales, and a University of Notre Dame du Lac in Indiana. The quiz question as written is ambiguous and should be accepting New South Wales as an answer.
