5 Unique Stops Showcase UD Life
Date Published: Nov. 11, 2016
Whether you’re a visiting high school senior here for Odyssey Days, our two-day campus experience during which students get a taste of life at UD, or
just thinking of visiting our Irving campus, there are a number of stops you won’t
want to miss out on.
Preview the Rome Experience with a visit to the Cap Bar in the Haggar University Center.
A highlight for first-time campus visitors, and a popular hangout for students, alumni
and the rest of the UD community, the Cap Bar offers a cozy, relaxing environment
to do homework, meet with study groups or chat with friends between or after classes.
After ordering your drink of choice, check out the Rome photo gallery in front of
the university bookstore.
Rome Program Lecture
Don’t miss Associate Professor of English Andrew Osborn as he presents UD’s nationally
renowned Rome Program. Osborn will walk you through everything from your first day
arriving on our Eugene Constantin Campus just outside of Rome, Italy, as a UD sophomore,
to your first trip to the Vatican and more. Learn why our Rome Program is so ingrained
in UD’s tradition and is a necessary part of our Core curriculum.
Braniff Memorial Tower
Walk up nearly 200 feet to get a bird's eye view of the entire campus. Braniff Memorial
Tower stands on the south side of campus and was designed by the father of Southwest
architecture O’Neil Ford. Inside, at the top of the Tower, are four bronze bells,
which were named after Saints Columba, Agatha, Catherine of Alexandria, and Andrew.
SB Hall, Third Floor
The not-quite-one-year-old SB Hall is the university’s home for our acclaimed Satish
& Yasmin Gupta College of Business. Venture up to the third floor to check out our
state-of-the-art board room. If you can, take a step out onto the balcony overlooking
Las Colinas and the Dallas skyline. It also offers a bird's eye view view of UD from
the north side of campus.
Haggerty Art Village
Escape into a wooded retreat in one of the nation’s most populated metropolitan areas.
Enjoy reading a good book under our beautiful oak trees, and see if you can spot Aslan
the lion. While you’re here, make sure to stop by one of our student or faculty art
exhibits in the Art History Building, or visit a wide-range of studio experiences
elsewhere in the Art Village.
