About

You learn a lot at college. Sure, there's the academic course work devoted to your major and the classes that combine to foster your liberal arts education. But you'll also learn things outside the classroom, like how to manage your time, make new friends and find a great internship.

At the University of Dayton, we know your achievements are about more than making the grade or finishing that huge project; it's also about the journey that you take to reach the end. That's why our Office of Student Success and Parent Engagement is available to guide students and their families toward obtaining the most positive experience possible from the time of enrollment through your graduation as a UD Flyer.

To contact our office, please call 800-427-5029, option 2, or email success@udayton.edu.

Caring about students' success is one of many things we have in common.

We know watching your son or daughter go to college can be difficult. You're the parent, the one who has provided love and support for the last 18 years. You only want the best for your child. But don't worry — so do we.

With any life transition, there are bound to be some changes along the way. We understand and are here to help. Please contact us at any time with your concerns or questions at 800-427-5029 (option 2) or at success@udayton.edu.

Smart Flyers have co-pilots.

College is a time of major transition, and it's okay to feel overwhelmed and confused. There is no such thing as a silly question; in fact, your concerns are probably shared by many of your peers. Whether it's strategies for getting involved, learning study skills or trying to adjust to your environment, we'll work with you to put together a plan for success.

Smart flyers have co-pilots to help them navigate when things get rough in the sky. It's our job to be your co-pilot when you need some help navigating life. We've provided answers to common concerns on our website, but we encourage you to contact us at 800-427-5029 (select option 2) or success@udayton.edu anytime you have questions.

And to make sure you are aware of important campus news — and are connected with useful resources and information — we encourage you to log into Porches frequently.

It's just between us.

In the Office of Student Success and Parent Engagement, we welcome all of your questions about anything. Our office is a welcoming, nonjudgmental environment where you can share your questions or concerns and find real answers to the things you really want to know.

Any question or concern brought to the Office of Student Success and Parent Engagement remains private. Often times, we may encourage you to address your concern to a particular office to help you find the best solution to your needs. To protect the best interests of our entire UD family, in situations that may compromise your safety or the safety of another member of our community, privacy policies may be broken.

Looking to make the most out of your college experience? You've come to the right place.

The Office of Student Success and Parent Engagement is part of Flyers First, located in St. Mary's Hall. You may contact us by calling 800-427-5029, option 2, or emailing success@udayton.edu.
