Student touts military as exemplary employer

After almost three years in the naval reserves, Kelvin Beaudoin says the experience is worth more than the money. An able seaman, the first-year philosophy and sociology student works as a resource management support clerk at the HMCS Hunter.

“For my trade, many of the skills I’m learning now are transferable to civilian jobs,” Beaudoin says. “I’ve learned communication, organization and team working skills.”

He is paid for his work, but also received $2,000 toward his university tuition.

Students have varied plans for Study Week

UWindsor students will be busy during Study Week, whether or not they stay in town.

Communication studies major Brian Khan will be hard at work.

“I’m going to be home, editing video for most of the break,” he says.

And Greg Paziuk, a master’s student in English, is writing a paper on the importance of illustrations in early English literature for a conference presentation in March.

On the other hand, computer science student Dustin Garvey will be taking it easy.
