Head Start 2013 invites new students to “Unleash their Inner Lancers”

The Head Start orientation program will give incoming students an opportunity to learn about the campus community, says organizer Laura Prada, student development and support transition services intern in the Educational Development Centre.

“From June 4 to 11, students will be visiting the UWindsor campus to meet their professors, register for courses, join a campus tour, and have the chance to win a $500 award daily,” she says.

STEPS program builds study skills

December 18 marked the last day of exams of the fall 2012 semester at the University of Windsor.

The school’s Skills to Enhance Personal Success (STEPS) program aided in the preparation for final exams through group sessions that introduced practical methods to help students improve their learning and study skills.

“The top two sessions would be those on test anxiety and multiple choice exams,” said Laura Prada, student development and support transition services intern.

Student Affairs staff put their culinary skills to work

A team from the UWindsor student affairs office gave a new meaning to serving students this week—cooking and serving dinner to 80 hungry patrons at Assumption University on Monday.

Brooke White, executive director of student affairs;  Mike Houston, director of international affairs; Diane Rawlings, head of residence services; Karen Benzinger, acting director of the Educational Development Centre; and transition services intern Laura Prada prepared a typically Canadian dinner of meat loaf, mashed potatoes, steamed carrots, salad, rolls and a dessert of cake.
