FAQs

Who can participate in DY events?
Dallas Year is a program for all full time, undergraduate students at the University of Dallas!

How do I get to a Dallas Year event?
Transportation is always provided for any DY event-- free! If you are participating in a DY event you must go with the group. You may not drive yourself. Dallas Year events are for undergraduate students of the University of Dallas. Sometimes we have extra tickets available the day or two before an event and we will open those spots up to other UD students, faculty and staff.

How do I purchase a ticket?
Just stop by the SALC (Haggar University Center down the hall from the Cap Bar) during business hours. Check the event details and flyers for more information about when tickets go on sale.

Can I buy more than one ticket?
For most events, sure! You can buy up to two tickets per person (but they must be for another UD undergrad). We collect several pieces of information when you purchase/sign up for an event. All of this information is required to sell you a ticket... no info=no ticket. "High Demand" events will usually only allow for one ticket purchase per person.

What if I buy a ticket but can't make it?
Dallas Year has a No Refund Policy. We usually have a waiting list though so we can assist you in your efforts to find a substitute for your ticket, if you are unable to attend an event. You will only be refunded when another student has taken your spot.

Learning to See

I was shocked by the beauty I saw when I stepped inside the door, and I wondered how I could have missed this before. The church wasn't large, but it didn't need to be because a dome soared upwards above our heads, giving an impression of grandeur. Bea pointed out that the dome was topped by a "lantern," one of our key terms; as we looked around at the marble and gold, naming the different architectural decorations, we realized how much skill it had taken to craft every detail.
