Crusader Preview

Spring 2023 dates coming soon. 

High school juniors and their parents are invited to spend a day in the life of a UD student during our Crusader Preview. Get a feel for life on campus by enjoying a meal in Haggar Café; learning more about spiritual life on campus; familiarizing yourself with campus on a tour, where you'll see classrooms, student hangouts and residence halls. Crusader Preview is a great opportunity to gather more information about UD. 



Meet Us at the Tower

Friday, March 25th and Saturday, March 26th and Friday, April 22nd and Saturday, April 23rd

"Meet Us at the Tower," a phrase commonly used by UD students when meeting up with friends, provides admitted high school seniors a final opportunity to experience life as a UD student prior to the May 1 National Candidate Reply Deadline. During this event, you will hear about UD traditions and the Rome Program, experience campus and spiritual life, learn about various academic departments, sports and clubs, and interact with other high school seniors who are making the same decisions as you. We'll also help you sort through all the things that are on your mind: financial aid, on-campus housing and the value of a UD education. Parents are welcome to attend all events with the exception of the student panel. During those events, alternative programs will be offered for parents and other guests.


Odyssey Day

Friday, October 28th, 2022 and Friday, November 11th, 2022

High school seniors may attend one of our Odyssey Day programs in October and November. Odyssey Day gives seniors the opportunity to experience the life of a UD student. Meet UD faculty, staff and students and immerse yourself in UD's campus and spiritual life. Plus, you can take a student-led tour of campus, get answers about campus life during the student-only panel, and meet with your admission counselor about the application process, scholarships and financial aid. Students will have an opportunity to sit in on classes the Friday before each Odyssey Day. If you've applied for a Departmental Scholarship,* you may want to schedule your departmental interview in the days before or after Odyssey Day. Your parent/guest will be welcome to attend all events, with the exception of the student-only panel. There will be an alternative program for parents and other guests at that time.

*Not all departmental scholarships require an interview. Interviews are subject to department availability. In order to be eligible to interview at an Odyssey Day, the student must complete both, their application for the scholarship and admission to UD, at least two weeks prior. Please email our campus visit coordinator if you'd like to schedule an interview.
