Christmas on Campus started in 1964 as a way for students to celebrate Christmas together before they left for their winter break. Soon, they decided to invite the community, and the celebration grew. In time, Christmas on Campus became as much a part of the UD experience as Flyer basketball and the student neighborhood.
As students become alumni, they keep the tradition alive, organizing annual Christmas off Campus service projects and fellowship events in alumni chapters across the country.
The Boston Alumni Chapter will celebrate Christmas off Campus on Sunday, Dec.15, at Marion Manor. Please register online.
If you can’t make it, please consider making a tax-deductible contribution. Or, if you’d like to buy a gift for one of the children, contact us.
Welcome to the Boston Chapter
The Boston chapter works hard to bring the Flyer spirit to our city by providing a wide variety of activities, services and events each year. Getting involved with the Boston chapter will enable you to celebrate Christmas off Campus, tour a museum, cheer on the Flyers at a University of Dayton basketball game, go to a Red Sox game and network with fellow alums.
We hope you enjoy our chapter site and find that it further connects you to your University and fellow alumni. In addition to reading about past events and viewing upcoming event information, you will soon be able to register for events and make payments online, browse our photo gallery and much, much more.
Each alumni chapter takes a different approach in celebrating its connection with the University of Dayton by keeping the various aspects of its alumni group in mind. Each alumni chapter is comprised of alumni from different decades and degree areas. This is what makes our University so unique. Please check back to see what makes this chapter its own.

How to Get Involved...
What better way to reconnect with UD than to volunteer? Here are a few ways you can help bring a little spirit of UD to your community. There are many opportunities to help! If interested, please contact Megan Lachman ’08 at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Join the Planning Team
ALL alumni are invited to chapter planning meetings. These meetings, typically hosted at a local restaurant, are the perfect opportunity to share ideas for future chapter events. If you are unable to attend a planning meeting, but wish to be involved, please contact your chapter president.
Career Networking Coordinators
Networking Coordinators are needed to help plan events that gather alumni and friends to strengthen their professional networks. Examples of events include: Speed Networking, Business Connect, Business Cards and Brews or hosting various speakers. Events can be hosted at local restaurants, country or athletic clubs, or homes of alumni.
Lifelong Learning/Cultural Coordinators
Lifelong Learning/Cultural Coordinators assist in bringing alumni together to support the arts or bring UD professors to your local chapter. The NAA helps provide assistance in ticket prices to allow for discounted tickets toward theatre performances, science or art museum admission, or assistance towards a reception with a visiting professor.
Service Coordinators organize a morning, afternoon, or all day event that gathers alumni and friends together to serve the local community. Many chapters work with local non-profits, such as Ronald McDonald or Habitat for Humanity, to help choose the date and time for this event.
Spiritual Event Coordinators
Spiritual Event Coordinators plan and organize activities that have made UD the nationally recognized institute of higher learning it is today. Spiritual events include Mass and brunch/dinner, hosting a Marianist brother or priest or local minister for a discussion and reception, Bible studies and more.
Family Coordinators help find locations and plan events that appeal to all ages! Events could range from a picnic day at a local park to spending a day at the local Children's Museum or Amusement Park.
Social Coordinators assist in finding local places to help alumni have casual and fun nights out! Socials include gathering at a restaurant after work, professional sporting events, game watches, sports leagues, outdoor activities and more!
Flyer Connection: University of Dayton Alumni and Parent Recruiting Network is coordinated through Enrollment Management. Through this organization, alumni and parent volunteers increase the recognition and reputation of the University of Dayton across the country and around the world. These volunteers are enthusiastic and knowledgeable, and help us reach future Flyers. Join Flyer Connection or attend one of their events today!
