Odyssey Day

Your Odyssey begins now...

Welcome to Odyssey Day 

Click the date to register: January 23, 2021

High school seniors may attend one of our Odyssey Day programs in September, October or 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. 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.

To register, click on the date of the Odyssey Day you wish to attend, complete the form and submit. So that we can ensure proper social distancing, registration will be limited and students will be allowed only one guest. We ask that you do not sign up for multiple Odyssey Days; the programming will be the same for all three dates. 

Visitors are responsible for their overnight accommodations. Click here for a list of hotels near campus.

*Please note: all open house programs are subject to last minute schedule changes and/or cancellations as we monitor the health and safety of our campus community.

†Not all departmental scholarships require an interview. 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.

Sisters Serving UD: Sister Mary Angelica: A Thousandfold Back

It is no surprise that the University of Dallas, chartered by religious women, has had over 50 alumnae who have said “yes” to the call to religious life. In 1952, The Superior of the Western Province of the Sisters of St. Mary of Namur, Mother Theresa Weber, declared, "We need a Catholic co-educational college in this area!" On May 25, 1955, the Sisters officially received the charter for the University of Dallas. UD's first trustees were all religious women: Mother Theresa Weber, Sister Mildred Manning, Sister Mary Frances Connaughton, Sister Mary Byron, Sister Myrtl Owens and Sister Elizabeth Johnston.
