The key to being successful at the University of Dayton in the Accounting department is networking with the professors. The faculty have endless connections and opportunities that they will gladly connect students with. These connections include never-ending lists of partners from the Big Four, local firms always looking for interns, and everything in between. The connections do not stop at just public accounting either. The faculty is very diverse in that many have experience across the board. But to make these connections, students MUST go out of their way and make noticeable efforts to succeed. This includes visiting office hours for additional help on classwork, attending Beta Alpha Psi events, or even the basics of asking questions in class. By creating strong relationships with the Accounting department faculty, Accounting students will be extremely successful following graduation. The key to being successful in the Operations Management (also includes Statistics and Management Information Systems) is understanding your study habits and the way you learn. The professors approach content in extremely different ways. One professor taught by means of power-point only, one professor by means of real-world examples only, one professor by means of textbook then quizzes then exams (traditional), etc. It is SO KEY in this department specifically that students know to ask questions, know how they best retain information (especially from textbooks), are able to understand content to the point they could teach somehow else, know their best study habits such as flashcards or hand-written notes, and take full accountability for their success in the program. The professors are extremely knowledgeable in the department, yet I have found they have various and sometimes challenging ways of communicating this knowledge.
UD felt like home the moment I step foot on campus. From my very first day of classes, my professors made me feel welcome and excited to be on campus. The dorms were huge and the staff was very helpful with move-in. The dining halls actually serve great food! I can't say enough great things about this school!
The University of Dayton (UD) is a academically rigorous and service oriented University that focuses on the leadership potential of students. A Marianist University, UD, is committed to social justice issues in the Dayton region and around the world. As a student I have various opportunities to participate in opportunities abroad through the Center for Social Concern and College of Arts and Sciences. There are numerous student run organizations that meet almost any interest that a student might have! Campus diversity was also very important to me, and I was able to interact with students from around the world as a conversation partner through the office International Student Scholar Services. Finally, if I never needed academic support, I always felt that my professors had an open door policy and the Office of Learning Resources provided tutoring opportunities if I needed additional academic support.
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.
