            UD and community

            UD has a great sense of community. I have never met a graduate who didnt agree with that. Community is difficult to measure in value but I know it changed my life for the better.

            An Amazing Experience

            The University of Dayton’s engineering program was fantastic! The co-op experience was great and landed me in the career that I am still at today. But the best part of UD, it was where I met my lifelong friends and my wife. It gives you an experience that is very hard to find these days. The community is incredible and something I will never forget. I the happiest and saddest day of my life was when I had to graduate. But once you go to UD the sense of community stays with you always. I am so proud to be a Dayton Flyer!
