Visit Us (Cub for a Day)

Starting each September, the U of D Jesuit Admissions Office invites students in grades 6, 7, & 8 to spend a day at U of D Jesuit as a "Cub for a Day"! As a "Cub for a Day", prospective students will have the chance to experience a typical school day with a current student and travel to all of his classes.

A Cub for a Day:

  • Meets U of D Jesuit teachers
  • Experiences the academic excellence at U of D Jesuit
  • Enjoys our delicious lunch (on us!)
  • Possibly participates in a lunch-time intramural game
  • Experiences the spirit that is U of D Jesuit

Students and parents are asked to arrive at U of D Jesuit by 7:45 AM - please enter into the building through the visitor entrance, West of the main school entrance. Upon arrival, students and parents will be greeted by a member of the Admissions Department and the student will meet their host for the day.

Please keep these items in mind for the "Cub for a Day" visit:

  • Dress code is a collared, button down shirt and a tie, dress pants (no jeans), and dress shoes
  • Bring a bag of gym clothes and gym shoes in case your host has a gym class
  • Bring a book to read in case a test is being given in a class you are visiting
  • Again, no need to bring a lunch - it's on us!
  • The Cub for a Day visit ends at dismissal time at 2:45 PM. Parents are asked to pick up their son from the visitor entrance.
