Buttons to help newcomers find needed guidance

The Student Success Centre invites all UWindsor staff and faculty to wear “Ask Me” buttons during its August Orientation on Friday, August 26, making it easier for campus visitors to identify people who can provide them with a welcoming smile, directions or basic information.

The event is designed to welcome incoming students who missed Head Start, as well as those not coming directly from secondary school:  mature, part-time, and transfer students. The full-day itinerary opens with check-in at the Centre for Engineering Innovation and includes presentations on campus services, academic expectations, career possibilities and other aspects of the university experience. Details are available on the August Orientation website.

“Ask Me” buttons are white and sport the university’s official logo. To get yours, contact Shelby Marchand in the Student Success Centre at She asks that wherever possible, departments coordinate their requests so that all of the buttons can be sent to one contact person for distribution.
