B.A. in Communication, University of Dayton

M.A. in Communication, University of Dayton

Originally from St. Louis, MO, I visited the University of Dayton for the first time in eighth grade when my older sister began her college search.  I immediately fell in love with the academics, friendly campus environment and the strong sense of community. I returned for a second look as a junior in high school and knew I had found my home.  The rest is pretty much history! After finishing my master’s degree, I taught Communication courses at a community college in Dayton. This experience—combined with my love for communication—allowed me to discover my true passion for working with students in higher education. As a graduate of UD, I have firsthand experience with the Flyer culture and the amazing opportunities UD has to offer.  I look forward to sharing these experiences with you. 

Why I Love UD

Choosing to attend UD was the best decision I could have made. My years here were filled with hard work and much effort, but also a lot of fun and fond memories that I will always carry with me. There are many reasons I love UD, but the strong sense of community is what I love most!
