Windsor students sweep residence programming awards

Windsor delegates to the Ontario Residence Hall Association Conference, held at Brock University March 1 to 3, came home with a lot of hardware.

Eight representatives from residence, brought to the conference by the Windsor Inter-Residence Council, received recognition for the programs they offer students as well as the presentations they made to their fellow conferees.

Residence Education and Advocacy Leadership Week (REAL Week) was acknowledged as Program of the Year, while the I “Clover” Sober campaign was named Community Outreach Program of the Year.

Student heroes collect a ton of food for needy

Dozens of residence students hit the streets of Windsor last weekend, collecting 3,400 pounds of non-perishable goods to stock local food banks.

“It’s not acceptable that many people are faced with not knowing where or how they are going to eat each day,” said residence life coordinator Lynn Charron, one of the organizers of the day of action sponsored by the Higher Education Reaching Out (HERO) Project.

“With food banks not being able to keep up with the demand, it’s time that we reached out and gave our neighbours a helping hand.”
