Honors Student Welcome

Welcoming the Newest Honors Students

The Honors Student Welcome introduces incoming Honors students to the University Honors Program (UHP), giving you the opportunity to meet other students already part of the UHP. 

Why Should You Attend?

There are some great reasons...

  • Meet your fellow Honors classmates
  • Meet current Honors students
  • Get an early start on building some amazing relationships with your peers
  • Get important information about the Honors Program and the University of Dayton
  • Learn how to receive direct support from UHP staff and students
  • Ease your transition to college life

Parent Participation

Parents are invited to attend an optional information session after moving their new Flyers into the residence halls on Friday morning. Parents are also encouraged to participate in applicable New Student Orientation sessions on Saturday as family schedules permit.
