What Is One Day, One Dayton?

UD’s first giving day is on April 10. One Day, One Dayton will be a 24-hour celebration of the university, the first of its kind. Since its founding in 1850, the affection of both alumni and friends toward this community has remained constant. The planners say One Day, One Dayton is a chance to recognize and continue that support.

To honor UD’s founding, One Day, One Dayton is seeking at least 1,850 donors. Organizers are seeking gifts of any size. Donations can help provide scholarships, support research and offer greater opportunities to students.

For example, UD’s Department of Communication is raising funds for an annual professional trip to Hollywood for graduating seniors, study abroad opportunities and department scholarships.

Donors can decide specifically where they want to give their money.

Progress can be tracked and watched live on UD’s website.

As Flyer Christian Cubacub said, “There’s truly a unique beauty about someone investing in you because they believe in your potential.”

There also is a “unique beauty” about throwing a pie in a professor’s face. Multiple university staff and faculty have offered to be “pied” in the face if certain fundraising goals are met.
