Your Summer Campus Happenings Briefing

It’s summer in Ohio which means the days are hot, the nights are long and you may not be quite up-to-speed on the latest campus news. For the latter, we’ve decided to highlight three recent changes at the University of Dayton.

A new look for UD’s board of trustees 

On July 1, Mary Boosalis, the president and CEO of Dayton-based Premier Health, took over as chair of UD’s board of trustees, becoming the first woman in the university’s history to do so. Also, six new members were added to the board with experience in fields such as business, law and religious life. 

Roesch gets rid of fees

As of July 1, overdue fees at Roesch Library are no more. University Libraries at UD announced that not only have they stopped fining for late returns, but that they also removed all cash registers from the return desks.

Additionally, all fees on accounts have been forgiven. (Any fees already paid, however, will not be reimbursed.) That said, any unreturned materials will still be subject to replacement fees if they are not returned.

“The Flyer” to change its route

After having been in operation for eight months, and transporting more than 1,700 riders daily according to a communications manager for the Greater Dayton Regional Transit Authority (RTA), The Flyer bus service has altered its route in an effort to increase accessibility for UD students.

As of July 15, the southern route of the free circulator bus will have an additional four stops:

  • Kiefaber Street at Brown Street 
  • Frericks Way at Kiefaber Street 
  • Frericks Way at Stonemill Road 
  • Caldwell Street at Brown Street  

The RTA also will add two larger 40-foot long buses that will increase the service’s capacity during peak hours.
