Skating party sees students slipping and sliding

Students get a push around the Adie Knox Herman Arena on Friday afternoon, during a free ice skating outing organized by Campus Recreation.

The free event gave students new to the sport a chance to try out a Canadian favourite. The municipal recreation complex, located at 1551 Wyandotte Street West, even provided skates, reports organizer Josh Leeman.

Student lifeguards appreciate convenience of working on campus

Lifeguarding can fit perfectly into University life, especially when the pool is part of the University. It keeps students active in campus life and they can make a few extra bucks on the side.

The St. Denis Centre located on College Avenue prides itself on hiring strictly student lifeguards who keep coming back every year.

Alex Noble has returned for her third consecutive year lifeguarding at the St. Denis pool. She says the people bring her back every year.

Innovation and participation earn recognition for Campus Recreation

With 5,000 student participants – and another 1,000 drawn from faculty, staff, and community – Campus Recreation is a huge success story, says intramurals coordinator Josh Leeman.

That success won plaudits last week, as the Ontario chapter of the Canadian Intramural Recreation Association recognized the University of Windsor with its Outstanding Intramural Achievement Award for the sixth straight year. The award honours programs that offer varied activities, promote fair play and build leadership capacity.
