    Although Dayton is costly, I would not trade this experience for anything else. Dayton has become my home and I now have a second family there.

    UD is expensive, but I feel that paying as much as we do has its benefits. Also, scholarship opportunities are hard to miss. For the education that we're getting, I think that the price is fair.

    The university is expensive, however the degree is worth more in the end.

    Dayton is an extremely expensive school, as it is a private Catholic institution. I do not think the University of Dayton is a prestigious enough name to be as expensive as it is. UD is a good school, but not a great school in terms of reputation. It does not stand out on paper any more than Ohio University or Miami University. Both of which are considerably cheaper.
