The REAL Dayton: Where Our Paths Meet

By Elizabeth Clarke

Join us on the path to discover the city of Dayton with other UD students and members of the Dayton community. This off-campus experience combines service, reflection, encounters with our neighbors in Dayton, visiting cultural centers and learning about the gifts and challenges of our city. Learn how to make a difference and get involved in your city of Dayton.

Why should you come on the REAL Dayton BreakOut? This is a great opportunity to spend your fall break getting to know your city better. There is time to explore and reflect on your role in this community as well as building new relationships and making memories.

Previous REAL Dayton participant Kate Schultz enjoyed this experience so much she returned this year to serve on the leadership team. While reflecting on her experience, she said, “The BreakOut was a meaningful way to spend my fall break. It was a great opportunity to give back to the community while meeting new people and having fun.”

REAL Dayton takes place during fall break, October 7-10. Sign up online at by Sept.19. The cost is $50. (For scholarship information, contact Bro. Brandon at All meals, transportation, and a T-shirt are provided. We will return to campus on Saturday October 10. Everything is planned for you.
