Since 1973, the O'Hara Chemical Sciences Institute has provided new students at the
University of Dallas the opportunity to complete two semesters of General Chemistry
during the summer. This residential program spans eight weeks in June-August. Accepted
students receive a scholarship that covers room, board and tuition. The value of this
scholarship is approximately $5,600. Students supply only their text books; the rest
of the program is free.
Admission to the program is competitive. The SAT average is typically over 1300. A
maximum of twenty scholarships are awarded each year and require SAT or ACT scores
and a letter of recommendation from a science teacher. Applications for 2018 are due
by April 1, 2018. Only students who have been accepted to the University of Dallas
are considered for scholarships.
The schedule is quite demanding: class is in the morning, Monday through Friday, and
laboratory is three to four afternoons each week. Exams are given each Monday. On
the weekends, students enjoy group activities, such as a trip to Six Flags amusement
park, attending a Texas Rangers game, or touring the Coca-Cola syrup plant. Upon completion
of the program, students receive credit for CHE 1303, 1103, 1304 and 1104. This is
the first year of college chemistry.
This program is open to all students who will be enrolling at the University of Dallas
in the fall. You do not have to be a Chemistry or Biochemistry major, though this
program is highly recommended for Chemistry and Biochemistry majors. The advantage
of O'Hara for these majors may be seen by comparing the four-year schedules of Chemistry and Biochemistry majors with and without O'Hara. By completing general chemistry in the summer you
can finish Organic Chemistry before going to Rome in your sophomore year. You will
then be eligible for summer research after your second year and will be able to take
electives during your senior year. Click here for more reasons to participate in the O'Hara Program.

Although she can no longer see, Tia does her best, like the mother she still is, to ensure the comfort of those around her from her perch on the edge of her bed. She is one of three elderly residents of St. Adelaide in Grand Prairie, one of Gospel of Life Dwellings' two locations. First conceived by Joe Flaherty, M.D., BA '86, a geriatrician, the idea for these homes was embraced and implemented -- and is continuously sustained -- by numerous UD alumni.
Positioned off Crusader Drive, behind the batting cages and the centerfield wall of the baseball field, the university's newly constructed baseball clubhouse opened the first week in May, the last week of the season for the UD baseball team. This milestone marked the end of a years-long endeavor supported by the university's Baseball Booster Club to upgrade the team's existing locker room and practice facilities.
Valor Public Schools founder David Williams, who pursued graduate coursework at UD from 2006-7, and superintendent Steve Gordon, BA '97 MA '01, believe that a school should be an environment filled with joy.
