Why I love UD/Why I Recruit for UD: UD is so unique! There are many opportunities to get involved on campus, and I am excited to experience and observe UD's campus life and activities! Also, a semester in Rome?! The opportunity to travel abroad is the coolest thing a college student can do.

Advice to Prospective Students: Ask questions! Visit Campus! Do all your research! Make sure it is where you can see yourself for the next four years. Also, make sure it is a campus that will help you grow academically and socially! College is a experience that you will always hold dear in your heart, so make sure that your college of choice is the right fit. Hopefully it will be University of Dallas!


Sisters Serving UD: Sister Mary Angelica: A Thousandfold Back

It is no surprise that the University of Dallas, chartered by religious women, has had over 50 alumnae who have said “yes” to the call to religious life. In 1952, The Superior of the Western Province of the Sisters of St. Mary of Namur, Mother Theresa Weber, declared, "We need a Catholic co-educational college in this area!" On May 25, 1955, the Sisters officially received the charter for the University of Dallas. UD's first trustees were all religious women: Mother Theresa Weber, Sister Mildred Manning, Sister Mary Frances Connaughton, Sister Mary Byron, Sister Myrtl Owens and Sister Elizabeth Johnston.
