Students invited to help with Winter Fest

A student group has signed on to recruit volunteers to help with Winter Fest in downtown Windsor on Saturday, December 15.

Volunteer International Students Assistance is seeking volunteers to help with setting up, marshalling the Santa Claus parade, and cleaning up afterward.

“This would be a great opportunity if you are looking to be a part of an exciting community event while earning volunteer hours and developing work experience,” says Abdulqader Alsobaihi, the club’s coordinator.

Engineering students win recognition for optimizing micro-brewery

Faster than some people can sip a pint of beer, a group of UWindsor industrial engineering students were redesigning the production line of a Halifax microbrewery to help cut its costs.

Christina Asuncion, Maria Marin, David Impens and Abdulqader Alsobaihi took silver-medal honours at the Institute of Industrial Engineers Student Conference, January 21 at Dalhousie University, for their case study into Garrison Brewing, which produces craft beers.
