An Extraordinary Time
#1 Historic core1 of 7
St. Mary Hall, the Chapel of the Immaculate Conception and St. Joseph Hall form part of the historic core of the University of Dayton, founded in 1850 by brothers of the Society of Mary. The blue-domed chapel has stood as the geographic and spiritual center of campus since 1869.
#2 River campus2 of 7
Universities are always looking to expand, but they don’t typically purchase a building that once served as headquarters for a Fortune 500 company, reclaim an urban brownfield or add a sprawling park with a moat. The University of Dayton has done that and more with major land purchases since 2005, including the purchase of the former headquarters of NCR Corp., now home to the University of Dayton Research Institute, graduate classes and the first phase of a new Alumni Center.
#3 Joseph E. Keller Hall3 of 7
University of Dayton School of Law, housed in Keller Hall (center), prepares lawyers who are problem-solving leaders in their communities. U.S. News & World Report has ranked our Legal Profession Program among the top 20 legal writing programs in the nation.
#4 Jesse Philips Humanities Center4 of 7
An education that considers issues from multiple perspectives results in graduates who create new solutions. This fall, the University of Dayton launched pilot courses in the Common Academic Program, the first reform of the general education program in more than 20 years. As a cornerstone of the new program, every undergraduate will graduate with a broad education based on Catholic, Marianist values and the ability to answer one simple question that cuts across all majors: What does it mean to be human?
#5 Stuart Hill5 of 7
The walk up Stuart Hill to Virginia W. Kettering and Stuart Hall residence complexes is rite of passage for first-year and second-year students at the University of Dayton. This fall, the university completed a $2.25 million renovation of nearby Stuart Field to upgrade playing surfaces for the university’s 3,700 intramural and sport club participants. The 2011 Princeton Review ranked UD eighth nationally on its “Everybody Plays Intramural Sports” list.
#6 Our student neighborhoods6 of 7
More than 90 percent of our students live on campus and in the unique student neighborhoods that surround it, making this a great place to organize activities, make lifelong friends and feel right at home. Located two miles from downtown Dayton, our nearly 400-acre campus is bordered by a quiet, suburban neighborhood — the ideal surrounding for a residential university.
#7 Baujan Field7 of 7
Historic Baujan Field in the heart of campus is home to the men’s and women’s soccer programs. In the last 10 years, the University of Dayton has invested $35 million in its athletics facilities, primarily through private donations and corporate support. The on-campus home for every Flyer sport program has been either newly constructed or renovated in that time. More than 400 student-athletes on 16 teams compete for the Dayton Flyers.
