Student Ratings

Alumnus - Grad Year 2005

Overall Rating

The aspect of UD that I loved the most was the student neighborhood. Rather than a lot of off-campus and landlord housing, the university owns an entire neighborhood of houses around the campus. Juniors and seniors live in this neighborhood. This provides a very close, united, and friendly atmosphere around the campus, as well as an added sense of security. It is a unique housing setup that I really appreciated and enjoyed.


Alumnus - Grad Year 1976

Overall Rating

It has been many years since I attended U of Dayton, but the education was excellent. I received several internship offers after I graduated and went on to have an excellent career in as a registered dietitian.
