Last weekend I took a break from studying for finals and met some of my family members in Columbus to see my cousins art show. Somehow we got on the topic of the Rivers around Columbus and Dayton and I couldn't help but fill them in on how amazing the Rivers and Dams of Dayton are and how clean Dayton's water is. They were so impressed! Also, I told them about the new Rec bikes at the UD rec center. They couldn't believe that a small group of students were able to put such a large program in place on a college campus. While I was talking to them about the Rivers Institute I couldn't help but find myself falling even more in love with Dayton, its Rivers, and the Rivers Institute.
