Saturday dates attractive to Head Start visitors

Running orientation programming on Saturdays is proving convenient to attendees, says Head Start organizer Amber Norman.

A student development specialist in the Student Success and Leadership Centre, she says weekend attendance is outstripping that during the regular workweek.

“It makes sense that Saturday events don’t conflict with work schedules, right?” she says. “We are really making it possible for families to participate. It’s a huge advantage to our incoming class.”

She notes that the co-operation of offices and individuals across campus has allowed the University to hold welcoming sessions on Saturday.

“It’s huge for us to be able to do this,” Norman says. “We really appreciate that the engagement of our staff improves the UWindsor experience for our students before they even begin courses.”

The Campus Bookstore will open to serve Head Start visitors on Saturday, June 3, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
