Welcome Week organizers seeking partners for scavenger hunt and involvement fair

A scavenger hunt intended to familiarize new students with campus facilities needs partners to provide destinations for hunters. The event is set for Tuesday, September 4, as part of UWindsor Welcome Week orientation activities.

Organizer Amber Norman, student development specialist in the Student Success and Leadership Centre, says it’s a great opportunity for University offices and student organizations to raise their profiles.

“You’ll be able to get in on the ground floor with our new class of incoming students,” she says. “Let them know who you are, where you are, and what you do by hosting a stop on our scavenger hunt.”

Participants can even request a stop in their offices; find more information and a sign-up form online. To be considered for a stop, complete the form and submit by July 20.

Departments offering opportunities for students to get involved in campus life are better suited to the Involvement Fair, Norman says.

“We offer a multitude of ways for students to get engaged, and the Involvement Fair, held along Turtle Island Walk just before the scavenger hunt, is the perfect place to introduce them,” she says. “Of course, any organization wishing to partner in both are welcome!”

Sign up for an Involvement Fair display through the online form by July 20.

Also due by July 20 are the Program Orientation proposal forms for academic units planning sessions on Wednesday, September 5. Register an academic program orientation here.

The Welcome Week organizing committee will look after all orientation programming scheduled prior to the start of classes, and requires those planning a social event for after classes begin on September 6 to submit a proposal no later than Friday, June 29. Find the online proposal form here.

Meeting the proposal deadlines will enable the Student Success and Leadership Centre to properly allocate campus venues and promote events through materials that will be distributed to incoming students in August and September.
