student transitions and family programs
your life as a flyer begins here.
starting life at the university of dayton is exciting and overwhelming, both for new students and for their families. that's why we developed a series of programs to help incoming students make the most of their college experience and facilitate a successful transition into the academic, social, and spiritual life of the ud community.
beginning with camp blue and new student orientation, students are challenged and encouraged to take their first steps toward deep and meaningful academic and social engagement. these programs involve a rich combination of experiences that include meeting and working with faculty, staff and student leaders, service to the community, an introduction to academic coursework and co-curricular involvement and leadership.
throughout the academic year, conversations of importance to first-year students are fostered through presentations on topics ranging from establishing healthy relationships to developing study skills.
the office of student transitions and family programs is here to support your transition and answer any questions you have as orientation approaches and beyond. we hope that you will find our website to be a helpful and a convenient one stop shop that enables you to find answers to your questions as you prepare for your arrival to campus. we also request that you begin to check your ud email and porches account regularly. should you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact us.
