When Justin Skalaa begins part-time studies at the University of Windsor this fall, he’ll have a hand up courtesy of the Organization of Part-time University Students. The lucky student won a $500 bursary towards his tuition during an open house June 21 and 23 in the CAW Student Centre.
The event provided information for those considering part-time studies—including overviews of OPUS services, available academic programs, and admission requirements. It was a great success, says OPUS executive director Maryan Amalow.
“Numerous support staff came to help prospective part-time and mature undergraduate students that attended,” she says. “We are proud that we succeeded in gathering students to start studying at UWindsor.”
She also shared her experiences as a two-time graduate, who has earned honours and masters degrees.
