DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – With less than two weeks to go, and with last year’s event in mind – a campus disturbance with a forceful police response – University of Dayton administrators addressed their expectations of students for this year’s St. Patrick’s Day Weekend celebrations.

Administrators are advising students to be mindful of three points of behavior – act responsibly, treat yourself and others with respect, and follow the law.

University President Daniel Curran said students found responsible for violations of the law and/or the University code of conduct will face sanctions including fines, educational programs, disciplinary probation or suspension, and loss if merit scholarships.

“Ensuring that students are cared for – in mind, body, and spirit – important to us and integral; to our mission,” Curran said.

University sanctioned events and activities kick-off Fri., March 14 and run through Mon. March 17.
