University Mourns Loss of Doreen Gross
The University flag will be flown at half staff Tuesday, July 24, to remember Doreen Gross, a staff accountant in the office of the senior vice president for advancement. She died May 18. Gross, who lived in Rochester, was 59. She joined the University in January 2006.

Eastbound Lane of Elmwood to Close Again on Monday
Beginning Monday, July 23, the eastbound curb lane of Elmwood Avenue will be closed from East Drive to the Mt. Hope Avenue intersection while drains and hydrants are installed and a righthand turn lane is constructed. The project will continue until Sept. 30. The lane closure and construction are expected to cause significant delays for eastbound drivers, who are requested to consider alternate routes. Questions or concerns can be directed to Shawn Casey, University properties and contracts manager, at 275-2082.

On the River Campus, toner cartridges can be dropped off at the Todd Union Post Office counter; Common Connection at Wilson Commons; Rush Rhees IT Center, 612 Engineering Stores, or any residential life office. At the Medical Center, toner cartridges can be dropped off at the Helen Wood Hall lobby. Read more...

Roy VanDelinder Jr.'s $1.9M Gift Paves Way for Eastman, UR Fellowships
Roy VanDelinder obtained two history degrees from the University, from which he was a second-generation graduate, so he asked that a fellowship be created for UR students who are studying European history. He loved organ music— though he couldn’t sing a note—so the Eastman School’s organ studies program was the second beneficiary.
