Orientation programming goes beyond fun and games

UWindsor Welcome Week festivities continue today — Tuesday, September 5 — with events in settings across campus.

At 11 a.m., teams of students will begin a scavenger hunt from the David A. Wilson Commons alongside Turtle Island Walk, which is also the site of the Involvement Fair from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. The fair will feature opportunities to get active in the campus and neighbouring communities.

Lancer women’s volleyball will host a squad from the University of Michigan-Dearborn in a pre-season exhibition contest at 2 p.m. in the Dennis Fairall Fieldhouse, and the game theme continues through a board game social at 7 p.m. in Vanier Hall’s Katzman Lounge and trivia contest in the CAW Student Centre Commons at 8 p.m.

First-year students won’t want to miss two events Wednesday, September 6. Program orientation sessions, in varying locations across campus, will provide detailed information for every academic discipline. The Welcoming Celebration will formally inaugurate the incoming class, and promises prize draws, at 3 p.m. in the fieldhouse.
