Because of  COVID, many students here at the University of Dayton might not be going home for the 2021 Easter weekend.

Those staying on campus will most likely be in desperate need of something to lift their spirits which makes the events planned on campus the perfect distraction.

There are other things you can do if you cannot make it home as well.

You could get a meal from one of the dining halls or go on Brown Street and grab takeout from one of the many restaurants there. If you’re like me, I’ll Facetime my family back home and have easter dinner virtually. 

The weather has been getting beautiful, so you can even grab your friends on campus and play some spike ball or do some other fun outdoor activities. The RecPlex will be still be open during the weekend but with adjusted hours.
