Christmas on Campus Visit Day
Those who claim Christmas comes only once a year haven't been to the University of Dayton. Each year, as part of Christmas on Campus, students "adopt" local school children and treat them to candy and cookies, carnival games and prizes, jugglers, storytellers, singers, dancers and musicians. Thousands of lights decorate the student neighborhood, people sing carols and ooh and ahh at the tree lighting ceremony. And they give thanks for the Feast Day and all the joy, hope and spirit of giving it creates.
And this year, as the University celebrates our 50th Christmas on Campus, you're invited to be part of the magic. During our Christmas on Campus Visit Day, on Friday, Dec. 6, you can learn about admission and financial aid, discover academic opportunities available to you and participate in one of the biggest nights of the year.
