Part-time students proud of mayoral recognition

A letter from the mayor of Windsor congratulating the Organization of Part-time University Students on its 50th anniversary has excited organizers of its awards banquet.

“This is such a nice honour,” says OPUS executive director Maryan Amalow. “We really appreciate the mayor taking time to send us his best wishes.”

In his letter, Drew Dilkens (BComm 1996, MBA 1997, JD 2011) notes his own status as a UWindsor alumnus, and offers thanks to the OPUS team for the important role it play in the campus family.

He also extends congratulations to the evening’s honorees, whom he says “Find themselves by losing themselves in the service of others, making a real difference in the lives of those around them.”

The banquet is set for 6 p.m. March 22 in the student centre’s Alumni Auditorium. RSVP by Friday, March 15, to 519-253-3000, ext. 3603, or email opus@uwindsor.ca. For more information, contact OPUS staff at opus@uwindsor.ca.
