Opportunity for All

A UD Welcome

To prepare Flyer Promise Scholars for life at the University of Dayton, they arrive on campus a week and a half before school starts and participate in the Flyer Promise Summer Experience. Through the program, these incoming scholars receive:

  • A simulated university experience complete with faculty and staff interaction, course rigor, study skills management and extracurricular activities.
  • Community development, peer leader mentoring and leadership support.
  • Introduction to campus resources and organizations to support student involvement.
  • Receptions with key University of Dayton leaders and unique opportunities to engage with distinguished guests and lecturers.

The summer experience also enables Flyer Promise students to connect with each other and to settle into campus before the hustle and bustle of the fall semester begins.

“It was really nice not to be overwhelmed with thousands upon thousands of people … It gave us a chance to get to know each other,” said Villegas. “I had come from Florida to Ohio, not knowing a single person, and very nervous to start college. From the moment I arrived to check in, I found the most welcoming atmosphere I had ever been to ... It’s hard to know in life when you’re making the right decision, but Flyer Promise showed me right as I arrived, fresh with all my doubts, that Dayton was where I belonged.”
