If you saw a lot of people who looked like they were moving around Brown Street, Stewart Street or Irving Avenue Saturday morning, there’s a reason. Saturday was “Move-In Day” at the University of Dayton campus.
First-year students moved into Marycrest, Stuart, Founders and Marianist residence halls Saturday morning between 7 a.m. and 12 p.m. They are part of the largest first–year class in the 162-year history of the University of Dayton. Over 2,100 new students were scheduled to move in, and begin four days of orientation.
The university said that 58% of the first-year students are from outside of Ohio. In another new UD record, students are representing 39 states and Puerto Rico. The university said this is the first time that over half of the first-year class came from outside of Ohio.
The university said that overall enrollment of international students will set another record with 1,500 international students.
