O'Hara Activities

O'Hara Activities

The O'Hara Institute is a residential program, and participants are required to live on campus. Activities are scheduled for most weekends and, although not required, participation is strongly encouraged. Transportation and admission charges are provided by the Institute. UD's on-campus health center, gymnasium and swimming pool are open during the summer.

The maximum number of freshman students is twenty. Typically, about half the students come from Texas, with the other half coming from all over the U.S.

The selection of activities changes from year to year. In the past, some of the activities have included a  baseball game, bowling, Shakespeare Theater of Dallas, Beauty and the Beast stage musical, the Perot Museum of Nature and Science and the Dallas Zoo.
