Student Affairs staff put their culinary skills to work

A team from the UWindsor student affairs office gave a new meaning to serving students this week—cooking and serving dinner to 80 hungry patrons at Assumption University on Monday.

Brooke White, executive director of student affairs;  Mike Houston, director of international affairs; Diane Rawlings, head of residence services; Karen Benzinger, acting director of the Educational Development Centre; and transition services intern Laura Prada prepared a typically Canadian dinner of meat loaf, mashed potatoes, steamed carrots, salad, rolls and a dessert of cake.

The team gathered in the Freed-Orman Centre’s kitchen to cook and served the meal as Campus Ministry’s toonie dinner.

“It was a wonderful experience to serve the students outside our offices,” says Prada. “We want to get to know our students and for them to get to know us. We have enjoyed being part of these dinners during the semester and we wanted to kick off the final exams season with a nutritious dinner for them.”

Campus Ministry plans a final Monday dinner of the year on December 3, a Christmas dinner with turkey and the trimmings for $2. Find the details and RSVP on the Facebook event page.
