Scarves widen scope of apparel appeal

A new item available for purchase in the Campus Bookstore adds another option for women hoping to participate in Windsor Wednesdays — a soft pashmina scarf embroidered with the UWindsor logo.

The #UWinProudWindsor Wednesday” initiative was launched last fall, and the Office of Student Experience has since received feedback emphasizing the need for more UWindsor business apparel suitable for women to wear in the workplace.

“We want the UWin Proud program to be open and accessible to everyone on campus,” says Ryan Flannagan, associate vice-president for student experience. “It is our hope this wonderful scarf will be used by a variety of people for a variety of purposes so that everyone can show UWindsor spirit.”

The scarf’s design also enables it to accommodate women who wish to use it as a head covering for religious reasons.

The Campus Bookstore has them in stock for $29.99. The store, located on the lower level of the CAW Student Centre, also has a limited number of special-edition baseball caps that combine the iconic D logo of the Detroit Tigers with the UWindsor shield.
