Student Stories


I am a Ph.D. student in the electro-optics program at the University of Dayton. I have been at UD for two and a half years, and feel comfortable studying and living here.

I decided to study in the USA when I was a freshman. The higher educational quality and better research capabilities attracted me to study in the USA. I decided to come to UD because the electro-optics program is strong in academic research. The quiet and beautiful small town where the school is located also attracted me.

I have made a lot of friends here at UD, and some are like family members to me. People here are all kind enough to support each other and take care of each other.

It's not an easy decision for anybody to study abroad. Choose the University of Dayton to warm you up with the light from the whole UD family.
