Reading the Signs of the Times

We continue to write the next chapter.

Reading the Signs of the Times Book CoverThe story of the University of Dayton is one of the great stories in higher education.

Filled with evocative photography and compelling prose, a new coffee table book honors the University’s rich history and Catholic, Marianist tradition as it tells the story of a university on the move.

In the pages of Reading the Signs of the Times: The University of Dayton in the Twenty-First Century, readers discover how the University of Dayton community has seen the possibilities unfolding in a changing world and acted with a blend of boldness, pragmatism and humility.

Sprinkled throughout the book are short first-person essays called “A Flyer’s View,” which relay touchstone moments in campus life — from a student’s reflection about the joy of Christmas on Campus to a graduate’s memories of living in the student neighborhood, described as “a constantly magical place.”

The book, available in late April exclusively through the University of Dayton Bookstore, makes a perfect gift for graduation and a wonderful keepsake for all alumni and friends.

Reserve your $29.99 copy of this special limited-edition book today.

As a gift to all who love the University of Dayton, the book is available as a free e-book.
