Your life as a Flyer begins here.Starting life at the University of Dayton is exciting and overwhelming, both for new students and for their families. That's why we developed a series of programs to help incoming students make the most of their college experience and facilitate a successful transition into the academic, social, and spiritual life of the UD community.
Beginning with the pre-orientation leadership camp and New Student Orientation, students are challenged and encouraged to take their first steps toward deep and meaningful academic and social engagement. These programs involve a rich combination of experiences that include meeting and working with faculty, staff and student leaders, service to the community, an introduction to academic coursework and co-curricular involvement and leadership.
Throughout the academic year, conversations of importance to first-year students are fostered through presentations on topics ranging from establishing healthy relationships to developing study skills.
Think of it as "University of Dayton: 101".
From socials to academic advising and discussions, New Student Orientation prepares new students for their University of Dayton experience.
Held the weekend before the semester begins, New Student Orientation provides students (and parents) with an engaging introduction to the University through community building, as well as academic and social events.
From move-in day and an ice cream social to academic advising and team time, you'll quickly become familiar with our vibrant campus community.
A fresh start, your beginning as a Dayton Flyer!
New Student Orientation prepares new students for their University of Dayton experience by providing students (and parents) with an engaging introduction to the University through community building.
Please check back in late November for dates and registration.
Lots of things change. But your involvement in your child's life doesn't have to be one of them.
At the University of Dayton, we realize support from family plays a strong role in your student's success, and we want you to be involved.
To assist with this process, we are providing resources that you may find helpful.
And each fall, we welcome parents and families to return to campus and experience our community spirit firsthand. Events include a football game, a 5K run, a cornhole tournament, social events and, most importantly, quality time with your student.
Family Weekend 2014 is September 19-21.
They're taking their first steps. You know the way by heart.
There's no question: you love UD. Now you can share your Flyer Pride by welcoming new students to campus.
