Why I Chose UD

I chose UD because of the amazing opportunities the university has for both academic success and social life. I know that I would never be able to have such incredible student-teacher relationships in my classes and flexibility at any other university. Along with the community aspect of Dayton, I know that I've found friendships here that will last a lifetime.

Advice for Incoming Students

My best piece of advice I could give for incoming students would be to stay true to yourself, as cliche as it sounds, from the application process to your first year at the university you should never change yourself for anyone or to please anyone but yourself. If you are your true self you will easily find the right people to spend time with and become involved in the organizations that are meant for you which will result in the best college experience you could have.

Why I Love UD

I love UD because of the people. Everyone you meet here from the faculty to other students are the best people you could ever possibly meet. I know for a fact that everyone I've met I have built genuine relationships with and I truly do feel that sense of belonging on campus, UD is like a second family to me.
