University of Dayton Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (11)
The university's facilities are top-knotch, and the campus is quite beautiful. The quality of instruction will prepare students well for their future professions; however, like any educational institution, there is variation in the quality of instruction between faculty. As this is a private intuition, higher-than-average tuition rates are to be expected.
The University of Dayton (UD) was an okay experience for me. It is a predominantly white institution and I encountered a little systematic racism and lack of diversity as a black student; however the colored community on campus was pretty tight knot. The education was very high quality and most of the professors and staff are extremely nice and helpful. Educational resources are plentiful. There is also a lot of volunteer and internship opportunities. Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) was okay. I was one of the first students in their new virtual online Master's of Applied Social Science (Social Work) program; therefore there were a lot of things that were not solid as far as technology and having professors that have never taught online, which is very different than teaching a class in person. Overall CWRU was okay.
If you are on the fence on where to go for college, just give UD a visit. You will fall in love with the beautiful campus and the atmosphere of community felt among students and faculty alike. Here you will get a wholistic education that will prepare you for whatever comes your way in life and in your future career. You will wish you had more time here when you graduate. Go visit UD and go Flyers!
Good engineering program, strong in energy efficiency and aerospace.
UD Helped to prepare me for a few things. It helped me to become an active community member. UD fostered my leadership skills by providing many opportunities for students to take on responsibilities. However, I didn't feel prepared to teach after student teaching. UD had me in preschool classrooms until my senior year. I wish I had experienced being a part of a school as an undergraduate, like a TA position. I loved my time there and the people I met. But that's true for most colleges and others experiences
The University of Dayton is a wonderful university where each student is more than just a number. The campus has a community feel that makes you feel at home. The education is top-notch, but beyond that they offer stellar extra curriculars as well as opportunities to build and grow as a person. Whether catholic or not, you will feel welcome here.
The University of Dayton is one of the best schools to attend. Here you will meet the nicest people in the world. We have been called one of the top ten most underrated party schools in the nation, but everyone still tries hard in school and is extremely smart.
The program was both challenging and comprehensive. It would prepare a person well to enter a Ph.D. program in psychology, or for practice in a variety of settings.
The University of Dayton is an amazing place! The school has masterfully combined a high quality education with a true atmosphere that promotes community living and involvement. From classes with top-notch professors who care to clubs, sports and organizations, to the unique student neighborhood (the Ghetto) the University of Dayton will make you feel at home. There is a reason this university has such dedicated alumni who can't wait to return each year for reunion weekend!
As a current student at the University of Dayton, I have to say that I love it! The one thing that really stands out to me about the University is the sense of community. This sounds like a marketing ploy but being a senior there I can attest to the fact that it is absolutely true. Whether you are a first year student venturing out into the student neighborhood for the first time, or a returning senior who finally has a house in the "ghetto" (not actually a ghetto, just a nickname) people are genuinely friendly and inviting. After the warm and welcoming attitude of the people at UD, I would have to say the next best thing is the academic program. I am a hardworking a driven student and I wanted a challenging yet fair engineering program and with UD that is exactly what I got. Being a minority in the engineering field, I was wary about any challenges I may face, but I have come to learn that equality is an important part of learning and everyone is respected in the classroom. With my experience and good grades from UD, I was able to obtain a co-op position with Marathon Petroleum Company. I believe this is the most important thing about attending college - the opportunity to get a good job. Through the amazing career fairs that are held each semester, I was able to market myself and found myself in many interviews with different companies. I decided on MPC and it has been a wonderful experience as well as a resume and experience booster. In conclusion, the University of Dayton has been my home for the past three years and will be for the upcoming two as I finish my degree. With the amazing community, challenging academic program, and fierce career fair/post graduation job offerings, I would recommend the University of Dayton to any potential candidate.
