Meet the Counselors

During the admission process, you share a lot of information with us — your academic information, your high school activities, your goals. At the University of Dayton, we're big into building relationships, so we want to offer you the chance to get to know us, too. 

Whether you meet us on the road or on campus, all of us are here to help you navigate the admission and financial aid process. If you have any questions about becoming a Dayton Flyer, just let us know!
