A new project of the Lancer Nation student club hopes to see the campus swathed in blue and gold—at least once a week.
“Windsor Wednesdays” will send varsity athletes and volunteers to roam the campus each Wednesday and distribute ballots to students wearing Lancer- or UWindsor-themed apparel. The ballots may be entered into a draw to win prizes, including a gift card to the Campus Bookstore.
“The idea is to help create a sense of spirit on campus and to give Lancer athletes an opportunity to interact with other students,” says coordinator Rob Crawford. “It’s a big chance for them to be able to show their faces, so students will know the players when they go to the games. The fans won’t just see athletes; they’ll see their friends.”
His team also plans giveaways to the first 100 students found with their Windsor gear on the project’s launch: Wednesday, November 12.
“Traditions like this have to start somewhere,” Crawford says. “Lancer Nation wants every student to show the world how proud we are of the University of Windsor.”
