Business students dodge balls for a cause

The charity benefiting from a student-organized dodgeball tournament got an unexpected bonus, as the winning team turned over its $500 prize for the cause.

The tournament -- Saturday, March 24, at Assumption College Catholic High School -- was the brainchild of a group in business professor Martha Reavley’s Management and Organizational Behaviour Class: Zach Braga, Tyler Jahn, Evan Rhyno, Mohamad Zein and Nowshin Nur.

“Overall it went spectacular,” said Jahn. “As we dwindled down to the finals, everyone was duking it out and in the end, Team Meadows won.”

Students reap rewards of smoking cessation contest

It may have been scorching hot Wednesday afternoon, but it was much less smoky than usual, as the Leave the Pack Behind student health services group held its awards ceremony in the Thirsty Scholar.

With about 50 student participants on hand to watch, UWindsor president Alan Wildeman handed out awards to those winners who reduced or eliminated cigarettes from their lives.
