"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!"

Degree: Electrical Engineering

"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."

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2011
"University of Dayton is a great community and a beautiful campus. The class sizes are perfect and instructors are extremely helpful. The Visual Communication Design degree is a great program for graphic design, marketing, and branding. The material is very practical to real world careers. I learned a lot within my four years at UD and had many opportunities to get involved and participate in programs that were both academic and social. However, UD is a private school and the tuition does reflect that. Although I loved my degree program and instructors, I feel that I could have received a similar education at a state institution or less expensive school. They do reward scholarships but I thought they were minuscule compared to the overall annual tuition."
