University of Dayton
The University of Dayton's history is one of perseverance, tenacity, ingenuity and transformation. The school began with an act of faith more than 160 years ago. Starting with only 14 students, one building and one farm, the University of Dayton rose from its humble beginnings in 1850 to become an internationally recognized university of today?s world.
The university offers more than 80 undergraduates and 50 graduate and doctoral programs and its academics are challenging. Not just for the sake of it, but because there are real challenges in the world that need to be met. That way, when graduation arrives, students won't be entering the real world for the first time rather they will already be part of it, fully prepared for their career and for life.
Whether it?s the buzz in the air from having more than 270 student groups and organizations, the creative energy around the university?s arts events, the passion for Division I athletics and campus recreation activities, or the feeling that the students are all in this together, their experience will be unforgettable. Campus Recreation offers several fitness and training programs to help students to achieve healthy habits that will build a lifestyle of strength and wellness. Or if they are in a workout rut, students can borrow a RecBike to explore the local Dayton area and metroparks, arrange a sand volleyball tournament or enjoy a movie while floating around in the pool during Flick n' Float.
Situated on the banks of the Great Miami River in southwest Ohio, less than two miles from downtown Dayton, there?s always something fun to do on and around campus. All modesty aside, Dayton is among the most underrated cities in the United States. It's some hidden gem rich in history, culture and recreation.
