JUST YOUR SIZE
At the University of Dayton, learning doesn’t happen just for the sake of learning. It’s about making a difference right now, as an undergraduate. Recently, UD students have created solar-powered equipment to sterilize medical devices, designed cost-effective cargo planes using new composites, developed fitness programs for grade-schoolers, explored the complexities of urban education, and managed and invested nearly $11 million of the University’s endowment.
INTERNSHIPS AND RESEARCH OPPORTUNITIES
With a vast array of internships and cooperative education opportunities, UD students earn a professional foothold in the world well before earning their diploma. Fortune 500 companies regularly recruit students on campus, and the University also hires undergrads to work on cutting-edge projects at one of the best research organizations in the world — the University of Dayton Research Institute.
Whether studying on campus or abroad, University of Dayton students have the chance to receive a truly global education. Through extensive education abroad programs, students travel to every continent except Antarctica and immerse themselves in new cultures, earn course credits and improve the lives of others.
Whether you want to make a difference in the life of a child, work toward social justice, spend a week helping others or sleep under the stars during a wilderness retreat, you’ll find opportunities through Campus Ministry. Home to one of the nation’s largest campus ministry programs, the University of Dayton sponsors more than 30 student-run service clubs, retreats, BreakOut trips and more.
