Bursary giveaway an orientation highlight for new part-time students

Winter Orientation sessions held January 7 before the start of classes helped to introduce entering students to University life and post-secondary study.

In addition to an information fair on various campus services, it featured addresses by dean of students Clayton Smith and representatives of the Student Success Centre, as well as a chance to create UwinCARDs and activate student e-mail accounts.

The Organization of Part-time University Students distributed gift packages and held the draw for its $500 bursary. Winner Michel Nakhle will apply the prize to his tuition in social work this semester.
