The University of Dayton is one of three Marianist universities in the country. This quantitative survey-based study explores whether or not there is a correlation between the religious affiliation of an institution and the college decision-making process. The purpose of this study is twofold: (a) to determine the common factors that go into the college search process and how important they are to students and (b) to evaluate the influence that the Marianist traditions at the University of Dayton had on students when determining a university to attend. The findings of this survey provide knowledge for how the institution can best recruit students and share what they find to be most important in the college search process with them about the University of Dayton.
