University of Dayton students will transform the campus into a holiday playland for local children during the 55th annual Christmas on Campus Friday, Dec. 7. More than 1,000 Dayton Public Schools students are expected to attend. Each child will be paired with a UD undergraduate for crafts, a carnival, performances and more.
“The theme this year is ‘One Night, One Community,’” said senior Ryan O’Hara, a member of the planning committee. “The theme fits with the University’s Marianist identity and reflects how this event brings University of Dayton students and members of the Dayton community together to celebrate a time of year that is filled with joy. It is a wonderful a chance to spend time with the first and second graders that come to campus. Christmas On Campus truly is a glorious time to be a Dayton Flyer.” All activities are free and open to the public.
