Christmas on Campus

Christmas on Campus is an annual celebration held each December on the University of Dayton campus. It is a hallmark event symbolizing the Catholic and Marianist tradition of the University of Dayton. On Friday, December 7, 2012, we will celebrate our 49th Anniversary!

The tradition of celebrating Christmas and the Feast of the Immaculate Conception dates back to 1964 when a group of students gathered and decided they wanted to celebrate Christmas before they left for the holidays. With that, Christmas on Campus was born. Since then, it has evolved into the night of magic and wonder that we know today.

When Christmas on Campus began, it was a celebration for UD students and faculty. Then UD decided to involve the greater Dayton Community; thus local families were invited to come to the event and share in the Christmas celebration. It came to the attention of UD students that many children may not have the opportunity to fully celebrate the Christmas holiday. Rather than simply inviting children, they created a way to “adopt” a child. Nearly 1000 children from Dayton City Schools are "adopted" by UD students the night of Christmas on Campus. In addition to the schools we work with, the event is free and open to the general public.

Over the years, the activities of the night have grown and expanded to make Christmas on Campus one of the most signature at the University of Dayton. Each year, the entire campus sparkles with holiday cheer. UD Alumni hold "Christmas off Campus" events across the United States, and even around the world! Christmas on Campus is a unique opportunity to celebrate the true spirit of Christmas with the entire Dayton community- students, faculty, staff, alumni, families, and most of all- the children of Dayton.

My college did something similar. The students bought gifts for children who didn't have much, and the college had all of the children for a party and the gifts.

How interesting.  You live in Atlanta and your daughter goes to UD.  I live in Dayton and my daughter graduated from the University of Georgia.

All our family is in the Indianapolis area. Dd did not want a Wisconsin college. She looked at 2 in Ohio and 3 in Indiana. UD was number 1 for her.
