Upcoming events for students in Dayton

    There is always something a student can do in Dayton. From attending upcoming events to meeting with classmates for social activities during the school breaks, you only have to choose what suits from the many lined up for this year. And whether it is taking place at the University of Dayton, in colleges around or in any of the city conference halls, there are events you cannot afford to miss.  

    I did some homework and came up with a complete list of events that students should consider attending. It could be a social get-together, academic presentations or a leadership seminar. The most important is that in the end, you will meet new people, make new friends, but most importantly, learn something new and important.  Take a look:
