About

The Project 

Christmas on Campus is an annual celebration held on campus each December dating back to 1964.  It started as a way for students and faculty to celebrate Christmas before leaving for the holidays, and now it is an event for the whole Dayton community.  Over 1000 first and second grade children from surrounding Dayton schools come to campus and are paired with a UD student for the night.  The campus sparkles with holiday cheer each year.  The event is free and open to the general public.  Christmas on Campus is a unique opportunity to celebrate the true meaning of Christmas with the entire Dayton community-students, faculty, staff, alumni, families, and most importantly, the children of Dayton. 

Who We Are 

We are the committee that organizes Christmas on Campus.  We are a committee comprised of 26 members and are divided into eight sub-committees that include School Outreach, Community Outreach, Entertainment, Transportation, Decorations, Hospitality, Public Relations, and Finance.  We have been working hard all semester to ensure that this year's Christmas on Campus is the best yet.

The Impact 

The majority of UD students are involved in Christmas on Campus in some way, shape or form.  It is a signature event for the University.  Most importantly, Christmas on Campus has the ability to have a lasting impact on the children of Dayton.  Many children may not have the opportunity to fully celebrate the Christmas holiday, and this event provides a chance for young children to celebrate the holiday season in an unforgettable way.   

What Your Gifts Will Do 

Your gifts will help make a child's Christmas extra special this year.  We use our funds to transport children to and from the event, bring reindeer and other animals to campus, decorate campus, provide snack bags for the children during the event, have a photo booth and ice sculptures at the event, and so much more!

Thanks for Your Support! 

Thanks so much for your support! Your support means so much to all of us on the committee, to the University, and most importantly, to the children!

60 Years of Tradition

Hello, fellow Flyers!

It's hard to believe that the holidays are just around the corner. Much like grocery stores around the country, UD already has Christmas on the brain (Christmas on Campus, that is!). 

Every Flyer's favorite tradition, Christmas on Campus, turns 60 years old this year. In celebration of this momentous occasion the Christmas on Campus planning committee is once again crowdfunding!

Dollars donated to their COC '23 crowdfunding campaign will help make this special COC celebration everything a 60th anniversary should be.

Check out the campaign page (link below) and consider making a gift to mark this amazing milestone!

Christmas on Campus Turns 60!

The University of Dayton's Christmas on Campus event is a beloved tradition. Each year during the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, our campus becomes a winter wonderland for Dayton Public School children and other members of our community to enjoy. This year, Christmas on Campus is celebrating its 60th year and the student planning committee is commemorating the occasion by working with Flyer Media to develop a documentary film. In order to produce this amazing piece the Christmas on Campus team needs your support!
