A 43-year-old Bryn Mawr man was charged with walking around one of the courtyards in the Commons without permission and then becoming combative with university public safety officials. Anthony DiMaio is free on $100,000 bail after being arraigned Saturday before District Judge Leon Hunter III on charges of aggravated and simple assault, public drunkenness and related charges. Villanova University director of public safety, David Tedjeske said, “Dimaio has been issued a no-trespass order and is banned from University property.” Tedjeske said not to engage with this man and  asked anyone who sees DiMaio to contact the public safety office at 610-519-4444. 

In other news, on October 13th, Reverend John P. Stack passed away peacefully at the age of 75. As per Father Peter’s announcement, Fr. Stack was an enduring presence at Villanova for more than 50 years. Under Fr. Stack’s leadership, there was a great expansion of campus life as Villanova transformed from a largely commuter campus to a residential experience. Additionally, Fr. Stack was instrumental in the formation of Villanova’s Parent and Family Engagement program, a cross-campus partnership involving the offices of University Advancement, Enrollment Management, the Career Center, Student Life and the Provost. Apart from his professional accomplishments, Fr. Stack was best known to generations of Villanovans as a priest first, but also as a teacher, an athlete, an advisor and friend. The viewing and funeral mass will take place on Friday, October 21 with the burial immediately following the Mass.
