Phase one of the University of Dayton's welcome center is complete. Phase two fundraising is underway for more exhibits and gathering spaces. Gifts designated for the Alumni Center fund are greatly appreciated.

A space all our own

The University of Dayton's Alumni Association designated $1 million to create a welcome center, a special events space and stunning touch-screen video exhibits highlighting achievements in academics, research and athletics.

The University accomplished the first phase of this ambitious project in June 2011, opening in the former NCR world headquarters at 1700 South Patterson during Reunion Weekend. Vintage and current campus scenes showcase the University's Catholic, Marianist heritage and its growing global reputation. An interactive wall of recognition honors donors who have helped build the University of Dayton into a top-tier research university.

"This center makes a huge statement," said Linda Berning '82 '87, former president of the Alumni Association and a trustee. "It demonstrates the importance of alumni to the University of Dayton. We want them to know they always have a home here."
