Litter brigade to take to campus

Student volunteers with the Campus Community Clean-up will get a free lunch, free coffee, and something money cannot buy—a sense of pride in their surroundings.

The anti-litter campaign will leave from the CAW Student Centre at 10 a.m. today, walk around campus to pick up litter, and gather for a commemorative tree planting.

Also today, the Taste of Windsor walking tour will bring participants to restaurants neighbouring the University for free samples of their offerings. The tour leaves from the CAW Student Centre at 2 p.m.

Windsor Welcome Week concludes Saturday with Shine Day, which will start with an 8 a.m. breakfast and end with a late night movie screening. In between, UWindsor students will participate in the largest post-secondary fundraiser in Canada, taking their shoe-shining skills to the streets of Windsor to benefit cystic fibrosis charities.
