Thirsty Scholar reopening as a restaurant only

A message issued jointly Wednesday by University of Windsor Students’ Alliance president André Capaldi and UWindsor president Alan Wildeman announced the reopening of the Thirsty Scholar effective Monday, March 19, with shortened evening hours of operation.

Here is the full text:

The University of Windsor Students’ Alliance (UWSA) together with the University of Windsor, have agreed to temporarily reopen the Thirsty Scholar as a licensed restaurant only, starting on Monday, March 19, from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily.  This new schedule will enable the UWSA to provide an important food service venue, as part of our commitment to make the CAW Student Centre a valued meeting place for students.

All former pub activities such as musical entertainment and the dance floor will no longer be offered. The restaurant will remain open until Friday, March 30, which is its usual closing date at the end of the semester. At that time, the Thirsty Scholar will be closed until further notice.

A review of the Thirsty Scholar’s pub operations continues, with a goal to ensure the safety of our campus community. Both the University of Windsor and the UWSA wish to thank all UWindsor students for their continued co-operation.
