University of Dayton Reviews
Overall it's a great campus, with a really good vibe. Lots of events that take place and allow you to get involved on campus. Very supportive of every sports team! Multiple places on campus to get great food, along with Brown Street that has just about every variety of food you can think of. Professors are very friendly and helpful. Class sizes are fairly small compared to other schools. The campus all over from landscaping to dorms is amazing! One thing I wish for is a little more diversity considering myself a minority. Dayton is a great place to be with many opportunities and memories to look forward to!
The University of Dayton seemed like the perfect fit for me coming out of high school. I wanted an average sized school with a strong sense of community which, at times, is an accurate representation of Dayton. However, the "community" aspect only revolves around one thing: alcohol. If you're not a drinker and you're not interested in going out 4 times a week, you won't see this sense of community that everyone speaks of. I am often put down by my "buddies" for wanting to stay in rather than go out and it's almost like I'm being forced to go out rather than be something I choose on my own and look forward to each week. Many kids here have absolutely no respect for others and it seems like a lot of the kids here are over-privileged punks who think the world revolves around them. Many come back to the dorms after being out and begin vandalizing really anything in sight. Absolutely no regard for the same poor maintenance man who struggles to fix everything on Sunday or Monday morning.
University of Dayton is an incredible college. The academics, professors, and campus may be excellent, but what really makes Dayton special is what happens out of school. An example is when I joined the Ud dems, a group for democrats in the university. This allowed me to be in group with other democrats, like me. Dayton is also a very kind, welcoming school. It has a warm atmosphere with many sociable, outgoing people. Though the college is so marvelous, it has flaws. The school tries it's best to include as many different groups of people as possible; people with disabilities, Muslims and Christians, Indians and Asians, whatever it be. Though the school is not very diverse. There is a major difference in the size of White people and Caucasians. Therefore my experience at University of Dayton is a 4 out of 5 stars.
