There are as many things to do as there are reasons to do them.

There isn't a single University of Dayton experience. In fact, each of us has a different version of life as a Flyer. And with the resources available through the Center for Student Involvement, you can tailor your time here to focus on your interests - and expand them.

Join one of our officially recognized student organizations. Enjoy a theatrical production, guest lecture, dance ensemble or musical recital in Boll Theatre. Bowl a few games in the Hangar. Attend fun, rewarding (and often, free) alcohol-free weekend programs throughout the year.

Greek Students

We're proud to be Greek.

Leaders of our peers. Public servants for social change. Scholars in pursuit of excellence. Innovators in networking. Forerunners in building everlasting bonds. Ask any of our students why they are proud to be part of a values-based Greek letter fraternity or sorority, and their responses are as spirited as they are impressive. We’re pleased to showcase our Greek community and its shared values, inviting you to explore membership and the opportunity to find a unique connection.

Students at table

You may not live here, but it feels like home.

To help campus feel more like your home away from home, we offer a variety of programs and services for commuter students.  Use the Commuter Lounge to relax, socialize, rent a locker, or study between classes.  Put money on your Flyer Express card for an easy way to grab a meal on campus – or a late afternoon snack.

Commuters on Campus is your chance to get involved and make a difference.  Commuters on Campus is a student-run organization specifically geared at welcoming commuter students into the UD community.  You can get to know other commuter students, attend a lunch with the Dean of Students or a Marianist Brother, and even help to make University policies inclusive of commuters.

Weekends are kind of our thing.
