An incoming first-year student from Wisconsin may not have grown up in Dayton, but she certainly is familiar with the University of Dayton scene.
Chloe Doring was greeted in her Marycrest residence hall room Friday by members of the UD Alumni Association who made a point to greet legacy students and welcome them into the Flyer family.
Following in the footsteps of her mother Christine ’87, father Thomas ’87 and brother Robert ’17, Doring made the decision to come to UD.
Not being completely sold on the idea of mirroring her family members’ choices, Doring wasn’t sure she wanted to join UD’s Class of 2021. But a campus visit made the decision for her.
“I toured it and I absolutely loved it,” Doring said. “And then, of course, my parents and my brother were like, ‘You should go here, it’s a great school. I always loved it.’”
Doring is one of at least 180 first-year students who are keeping alive the legacy, a Flyer family tradition they may one day pass on.
