The Hub Powered by PNC Bank
Nearly four years ago the University of Dayton in partnership with Dayton’s Entrepreneurs’ Center signed a letter of intent to become an anchor tenant in the Dayton Arcade. As with many new ventures there have been many ups and downs throughout the evolution of the project, there were many that thought The Hub would never become a reality. There were many more that believed we were creating something special and persevered through the effort including upper administration at UD, the leadership from the Entrepreneurs’ Center and leadership from PNC Bank. Working alongside the property developers, and City of Dayton leaders, all of these groups came together to make the vision of The Hub powered by PNC a reality.

Reusable takeout food container pilot program starts at UD’s Marycrest Hall

A pilot program offering reusable containers for takeout food from University of Dayton dining services has begun at Marycrest Hall. The containers - which can be returned unwashed and using the honor system - are one way UD students can take part in a zero waste initiative. 

“The typical reduce, reuse, recycle motto should be a hierarchy,” HSi graduate assistant Christopher Baldasare said. “Reducing is better than reusing, and reusing is better than recycling. Since the containers reduce the need to produce more recyclable containers, they are more sustainable. Recyclable containers still have to be constantly made and recycled. The reusable containers do not need to be constantly made or constantly recycled.”
