UD community posts sheet signs to show support, solidarity

We call them sheet signs of solidarity — messages posted outside homes of University of Dayton students, alumni and friends across the country.

Some thank healthcare and other essential workers on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic, others encourage people to stay inside their homes, and a few even tie in what could have been a historic March Madness run for the school’s #3 ranked Flyers men’s basketball team.

See photos of the signs from San Francisco, California to West Grove, Pennsylvania here.

“The University of Dayton is a Catholic, Marianist school, so our impulse in times of challenge is to gather people to pray, including after 15 tornados ripped through our community last May and a shooter took the lives of nine people in the city’s Oregon District last August,” said Kelly Adamson, director of residence life ministry. “But with the COVID-19 pandemic, we can’t gather right now. So instead, we are asking people to ‘come together’ by staying in their homes and putting up signs of appreciation and hope.”
