What's unique about your campus?

Anna

The commuity aspect of the University of Dayton is easily the best thing about the school. Everyone is there for one another, wheter in academics or personal life, you are never alone.

Christian

The greatest aspect of the University of Dayton was the campus atmosphere. There was a strong sense of community wherever you went and regardless of personal differences. Student and faculty do a wonderful job welcoming incoming students and allowing them to feel comfortable. Within the campus grounds, there are several key areas where students gather and it is relatively easy to go from an outsider to becoming part of a group. All that is required is the willingness to reach out, although sometimes people will reach out to you so that benefits more introverted people.

Kelleen

I think there is this sense of belonging by most of the students on this campus. There are groups for everything and everyone, and there are almost no groups for a "specific major" or anything like that. UD is a very welcoming school and the people here just love to be a part of the school. There is no place in the world that I would rather be going than the university of Dayton. It literally is my home.

Amanda

The best thing about the University of Dayton would have to be the sense of community. I can walk around campus and say "hi!" to anyone. I really feel at home here. I know that I could go to anyone, staff, faculty, or students if I need anything. Everyone is just so welcoming, it's definitely the reason I picked this school.

Gail

The best thing about the University of Dayton is the sense of community you'll feel all around campus. Everyone who attends this university is friendly and accepting of others. During orientation for Freshmen, you'll constantly hear the word 'community' being used. UD encourages all of its students to practice good Marianist values by creating an environment that all students feel welcome in and to strive to create a community that everyone feels comfortable in.

Zack

The best thing about my school is the values that thread throughout the university. Teachers care about students, their success and demonstrate it on and off the job. Students care about each other and support each other to be their best. Everyone cares about world and those less fortunate and strive to make the world a better place. This school is intimate and the thread of genuine fellowship and learning is palpable. All of this, along with the academic strength of the university, provides me the "feeling" that this campus gives me that lets me know that I belong here.

Megan

The best thing about this school is the community-minded environment. Everyone here really is very friendly. And classes are great....of course, there are some profs that aren't as fabulous as others, but over all, I have had a great educational experience.

Alexandria

Megan

The best characteristics of my school, the University of Dayton, is the friendly environment. I First experienced it on a campus tour and now I am a part of this fun, friendly environment!

Grace

The people are definitely the best thing at UD. Everyone is so friendly and the sense of community is awesome. Just walking around campus you'll probably talk to a few people that you've never seen before, just a simple "hey" or you might have a full conversation in line at the cafeteria. I took some summer classes at a different college and it was unsettling how distant the other students were. I would smile or say hey to some people around campus and they would look at me like I was crazy, it was completely different from UD.

Rebecca

The best thing about the University of Dayton is the community. Most students live on campus, and there is a very large student neighborhood. There is always someone around to keep you company or help with homework. Professors are close with the students and I have attended many faculty/student picnics for this reason.

Sarah

The best thing about this school is the community. Since it is a smaller school, people will get to know eachother very fast. With my freshman year I have realized that my dorm has a great community of people. Everyone is so nice and I have made a lot of great friendships. I would have to say that the best thing about The University of Dayton is all the great friends that I have gotten to have.

Brittany

I think the best part of Dayton is the sense of community. Everyone that leaves school to go off to college has a nervous feeling of starting in a new place and not knowing a whole lot of people, but here at Dayton it feels as if you never left your family. This sense of comfort allows teachers and students to also have comfortable relationships, which makes it easy for the student to ask the professor for help when they are struggling.

Philip

The best thing about the university of Dayton are all the opportunities provided to become involved in a variety of activities. Anything ranging from intermurals to chances at scholarships to helping the community in Dayton and across the globe exist and are easily accessible to the students. The university provides a great starting place to become actively involved with many people and help start a great career for anyone who wants to attend this school. I find the school a great place to join groups and help others around you as well as yourself for a long time to come.

Lauryn

If you ask any student at UD, we will tell you that the best part about our school is the community. Students at UD care for each other, no matter who you are. It's so easy to get involved because even if you don't know anybody, you can easily make a new friend. If you walk around on the weekend your sure to get invited in to a party of someone's that you've never met. Community is the best part about UD.

Amanda

The teachers are by far the best aspect about going to the University of Dayton. They are helpful, and available at most times of the day either by office hours or by email. They do anything in their power to make sure that the students are doing well.

Jenna

Everyone is very friendly at my school. Dayton is known for that. Every walk to class I say hi to almost every other person I pass because I've known them since freshman year or just met them last week in a class. Everyone is proud to be a part of UD. It's hard to leave campus on the weekends because you don't want to miss events with your friends. On top of all of this the classes are engaging and career focused which gives everyone a positive outlook on their future.

Caitlin

I think that there is many things that are the best about my school. I love the size and the academic challenge that the students undergo but mostly I love the people here at UD. UD has the best people for students, professors, facutly and staff. Everone gets along wonderful and is very respecful to one another.

The best thing about UD is Christams on campus, an event where 1st and 2nd inner city students come to ud for the night.

The best thing about the University of Dayton is the community feel. This campus has a neighborhood of home for upperclassmen to lve in. They frequently invite people in for parties.
