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!
