Happy First Day!

It's finally here — my first day as president of this great university.

As I drove down Stewart Street this morning, I was greeted by a huge, colorful banner over the entrance, "Welcome to the Neighborhood, President Eric Spina."


Through the President’s Eyes

Although I have been a Dayton resident for only a week and today is just my first day as president, I feel as though I’ve come home. My family and I have felt welcomed from the moment I was named Dr. Dan Curran’s successor last fall, and the graciousness and warmth with which we have been greeted and supported have made real for me that “community” is not a word used lightly here. It’s a way of life.
