According to the school, founded in 1850, the University of Dayton is a top 10 national Catholic university that prepares students for success in their careers and lives. As a top-tier, comprehensive university, UD offers more than 70 academic programs in four accredited divisions; arts and sciences, business administration, education and allied professions, and engineering. At UD, students find an environment where they are encouraged to engage the world, developing both a critical mind and a compassionate heart. Over 7,000 undergraduates call UD their home-away-from-home, and 90 percent of students live in the residence halls and porch-clad houses in the student neighborhood. Guided by a Marianist educational tradition that emphasizes building relationships, UD keeps its classes small, with an average class size of 27. In addition to hosting office hours, many professors give out their cell phone numbers and e-mail addresses so students can ask questions and get answers at any time. With more than 180 clubs and organizations on campus, students will discover activities to match their interests. Students show their spirit by cheering on the Division I Flyers, and they make a difference in the world by participating in more than 30 service clubs, attending week-long BreakOut trips, hosting the annual Christmas on Campus event and more. Whether studying on campus or abroad, all University of Dayton students have the chance to receive a truly global education. UD’s extensive education abroad opportunities offer programs on every continent except Antarctica. With its global perspective, the University attracts students from more than 50 countries and is ranked first in the world in an international student satisfaction survey. A vast array of internships, cooperative education and part-time employment opportunities allow UD students to earn real-world experience before earning their diploma. Ranked third among all Catholic universities for total research volume, students are also regularly hired to work with top scientists and engineers at the University of Dayton Research Institute. Employers know UD graduates have developed the skills and qualities needed to succeed, and Fortune 500 companies regularly recruit on campus. These opportunities aren’t the only value at the University of Dayton. UD is one of the most affordable private, Catholic universities in the nation – and an excellent value among comparable institutions. In fact, approximately 96 percent of incoming first-year students received some form of institutional aid (scholarships and grants) in 2010. Programs are offered through the College of Arts and Sciences and the Schools of Business Administration, Education and Allied Professions, and Engineering.
