University of Dayton

Dayton, OHwww.udayton.edu
The University of Dayton combines a strong academic and research focus with an emphasis on service, consistent with its Catholic Marianist roots. (It's one of three Marianist universities in the country.) UD's about 8,000 undergrads and 3,000 graduate students can choose from 80 undergraduate and 50 graduate programs, including engineering, education, business administration, and law, as well as the nation's first undergraduate human rights studies program, established in 1998. The university's 35 centers and institutes work across all academic disciplines including technology, business leadership, theology, and the arts. The school also offers international opportunities; its China Institute in Jiangsu Province lets faculty and students work on applied research and product development, and the university's Center for International Programs offers nearly 50 international programs for credit or service learning. The school offers a net price guarantee to entering freshmen who receive financial aid: As costs go up each year, a student's aid will increase proportionately so that net tuition costs remain the same for four years of study. The Dayton Flyers, who compete in Division I level in the Atlantic 10, have had Elite Eight appearances for both men's and women's basketball teams. The college's location in Dayton is a plus as well; the city has an active theater and arts scene, and is an hour's drive from both Cincinnati and Columbus.
