    Lots of different financial aid available. Don't let the published tuition price scare you. Most kids get financial aid.

    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.
