New students celebrate entry into academy

“I love the U already!” exclaimed Kyle Wong, winner of a free semester’s tuition courtesy of the Alumni Association, at Wednesday’s Welcoming Celebration in the Dennis Fairall Fieldhouse. “This is going to come in handy, 100 per cent.”

Wong, who will begin studies this week in concurrent education and science, had his name drawn from among thousands of incoming students who thronged the St. Denis Centre for the event, part of UWindsor Welcome Week activities.

Students cheered their faculties and programs, met their student government, and heard from administrators before the prize draw, which included gift cards to the Campus Bookstore and packages from the University of Windsor Students’ Alliance as well as the big prize.

“We are happy to sponsor one semester’s tuition for one lucky winner,” said Jean Wright (BA 1971, B.Ed 1972), president of the University of Windsor Alumni Association. “I am so proud to say welcome to our alumni family.”

Members of Moose Tracks, a team of students from the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, celebrate their victory in the Welcome Week faculty rivalry. Read more about the competition in Friday’s edition of
