Barbecue extends welcome to part-time students

Hundreds of students, faculty, and staff enjoyed the barbecue hosted by the Organization of Part-time University Students to welcome the school year Thursday, Sept. 26 — but none enjoyed it more than Bianca Lenarduzzi.

The part-time social work student won a $1,850 bursary toward her tuition, courtesy of the University of Windsor Alumni Association.

Besides a free meal, attendees received information on the benefits of OPUS membership, material on the federal election, and giveaways. It marked the 17th year for the annual event.
