Welcoming Celebration 2017Organizers invite UWindsor faculty and staff to join the Welcoming Celebration for new students on Wednesday, Sept. 4.

Faculty and staff welcome to new student celebration

UWindsor faculty and staff members interested in attending the Welcoming Celebration for incoming students should know there are seats waiting for them.

The annual event, a centrepiece of UWindsor Welcome Week, is set for Wednesday, Sept. 4, immediately following program orientation activities.

“We would love to have faculty and staff come and fill the bleachers on the stage,” says organizer Amber Norman, student development specialist in the Student Success and Leadership Centre. “It’s a really great way not only to show school pride, but also to show students how engaged they are with the campus community.”

She says a strong turnout from employees helps new students appreciate the supports available through their time at the University.

The event runs 3 to 4 p.m. in the St. Denis Centre and will mark the first public appearance on campus of new president Robert Gordon.
