Odyssey Day

Your Odyssey begins now...

Welcome to Odyssey Day 

October 25, 2019 and November 15, 2019

High school seniors may attend one of our Odyssey Day programs in October or November. Odyssey Day gives seniors the opportunity to experience the life of a UD student. Immerse yourself in the UD community by sitting in on classes, eating in Haggar CafĂ©, experiencing campus and spiritual life, and meeting with UD faculty, staff and students. Plus, you can take a student-led tour of campus, get answers during the student-only panel, and meet with your admission counselor about the application process, scholarships and financial aid. If you've applied for a Departmental Scholarship, you'll also have a chance to conduct your interview* with the department during your visit. Parents are welcome to attend all events, with the exception student-only panel. There will be an alternative program for parents and other guests at that time.

Visitors are responsible for their overnight accommodations. Click here for a list of hotels near campus.

*Not all departmental scholarships require an interview. In order to be eligible to interview at an Odyssey Day, the student must complete both, their application for the scholarship and admission to UD, at least two weeks prior.
