Exhibit by local graphic artists to celebrate 75th birthday of fantasy film

An art show celebrating the 75th anniversary of the iconic film The Wizard of Oz has given creative professionals from Windsor-Essex a chance to strut their stuff.

“When you get a chance to see what designers do when the creative constraints are removed, it really shows you their true style,” says Renée Bombardier, one of the show’s organizers and a graphic designer in the Office of Public Affairs and Communications.

Open House gives prospective students a little UWindsor experience

In what organizers are describing as the University of Windsor’s largest recruitment success yet, more than 3,000 high school students and their parents came from all over Ontario to Friday’s Fall Open House.

Sunny skies greeted visitors for tours of academic, residence and athletics facilities, presentations on programs and services, and a barbecue lunch served under four tents in the courtyard outside Dillon Hall. The Mark Calcott Band, an ensemble of UWindsor students, entertained guests as they enjoyed their lunch.

Display at library entrance promotes myUWindsor app

A display in the Leddy Library this month will help alert students to the benefits of the myUWindsor app, available for download to iPhone, Blackberry or Android smart devices.

The app puts course information, exam schedules, directed messaging and more right in the palms of users’ hands, says John Powell, director of web communications.

“It’s accessible at any time, wherever you are,” he says.

Information Technology Services developed the app and launched it in May. So far, more than 7,200 users have downloaded it.
