Public affairs, campaign and alumni offices offline to start week

UWindsor offices vacating the Assumption University building next week may be difficult to contact during their relocation.

Among the affected offices are University Campaign, Public Affairs and Communications, Alumni Affairs, Alumni and Donor Records and special events manager Mary-Ann Rennie. Operation of the online photo library database may also be disrupted.

Celebration Weekend ads hit city streets

A series of billboards celebrating the University’s 50th anniversary are part of an awareness campaign to involve the local community in September’s events, says Holly Ward, UWindsor’s chief communications officer.

“Windsor is home to thousands of alumni, so naturally we want to make sure local residents save the date in their calendars and plan to join us in September,” she says. “The University is an important part of the region and we want the community to know that everyone is invited to the celebration; it’s not only for our alumni.”

Cupcakes capture attention of campus community

A cupcake giveaway Wednesday in the CAW Student Centre served its purpose of bringing attention to the University’s 50th anniversary, organizers say.

“We had a really nice turnout,” says chief communications officer Holly Ward. “It is important for us to make sure the campus community is aware of what we’re doing. We will be launching advertising soon, but the current students and employees are really a core part of the celebration.”

Music students to entertain mass photo subjects

Attendees at Friday’s event to celebrate the University of Windsor’s takeover of the former Windsor Star buildings will be entertained by a band of music students.

The jazz group the Udder Guys—house band at the Milk Coffee Bar—will be playing while students and alumni, faculty and staff, and community members gather for a mass crowd photo in front of the buildings at the corner of Pitt and Ferry streets in downtown Windsor.

Campus to join Windsor-Essex celebration of kindness

You don’t need an excuse to be nice, but you’ll have one anyway this Friday, November 9: the WindsorEssex Community Foundation has designated it Random Act of Kindness Day.

Individuals and groups are encouraged to perform one simple act of kindness for someone else—neighbours, friends, co-workers, or someone they don’t even know—and hand them a card, inspiring them to do the same.
