University of Dayton Reviews
Review University of Dayton
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 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.
There are a ton of intramural sports that are a lot of fun. Club sports are welcoming and more of a commitment than the intramurals. Men's Varsity Basketball gets a ton of support! If you want to get into the student section at the games, you have to get there at least an hour before the game starts. The student section is standing and cheering for the whole game. The RecPlex, AKA the athletic facility, is pretty nice. It has a lot of machines, an indoor track,a pool, futsol courts, and basketball courts. The only drawback is that it can get overcrowded at certain times so that it is hard to find a court or a machine. There are group fitness classes at the RecPlex as well run by student employees.
