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!

UD is a school with a beautiful campus, tons of student clubs and inter mural sports as well as a music program that would pleasantly surprise you! As soon as I stepped on campus I felt like I was at home even though I commute from my physical home in Dayton. There will be a professor or two that you may not jive with but overall the faculty here want to see you succeed!
The University of Dayton is a great school! Everyone is so friendly to one another. There are tons of campus activities going on each week and there are many clubs/organizations. The classes can be rigorous but the teachers have open office hours where you can receive guidance and tutoring directly from them. There are also many tutoring sessions and study halls available. The library is also a great place to study, work, and be in silence.
