For shoppers stumped for holiday gift ideas, the UWindsor campus offers a number of options.
The Campus Bookstore has in stock a number of volumes signed by the authors, ranging from non-fiction to poetry. Check out the choices on its website. Owen Jones, author of Music from Windsor, will be in the store to sign copies from noon to 1 p.m. Friday, December 12.
“We also stock a full line of spirit wear and items bearing the UWindsor logo,” says marketing coordinator Martin Deck. “Everything from mugs and glassware to picture frames and a leather-bound journal.”
Friday, December 12, is faculty and staff discount day. The Campus Bookstore is offering a 10 percent discount on all products in the store, excluding textbooks, computers and gift cards.
For the theatre-goer in your circle, how about some tickets to the University Players? The company offers a half-season subscription to productions in February, March and April.
