Student Responses to Review Topic: Am I Enjoying Being Here

  • I am a current student here

    I simply cannot imagine myself being at any other school. To say that I love it is an enormous understatement. The community is exceptional and you are provided with endless opportunities for social interaction. In general, I have found that UD students are very 'work hard, play hard'. The students will generally work very hard during the week and during the weekends will have the times of their life. I love it this way. It is very possible at UD to still get good grades (I had a 3.78 last semester) and still have an awesome time, and I love that.

    Everyone always talks of the 'community' that exists here. I have to be cliche and agree with that statement. It is true. I value that sense of belonging and companionship that exists at UD. I enjoy everything I am a part of whether it be intramurals, school, or work.

    UD is like its own little bubble you enjoy the environment so much that you don't really realize what is going on outside of the bubble. In the fall time the campus is absolutely beautiful with all the colorful trees, and the campus grounds crew works really hard to make sure that the grass and plants are well kept. When you go to Dayton you will hear the word community a lot but what you realize when you are there is that University of Dayton is a very tiny community full of friendly and welcoming people. Fellow Flyers are quick to spot each other and I cannot even count on all my toes and fingers how many alumns I have ran into over the years, and they come up and share their experiences that they had while at school. But over all you will feel right at home when you step onto campus.

    UD is an awesome place to live. Most of the dorms are nice, but even the worst one (which I'm living in) is still great. The people at UD are great as well. One tiny thing I have noticed since I started living here is that everyone holds the doors open for the next person. It is a tiny thing but it shows how kind everyone here really is..
