Campus Recreation

Health Fair aimed at promoting student well-being

Lots of giveaways, interactive displays and even a chart to track the nutritional value of your food intake are on the menu for the Health Fair in the CAW Student Centre Commons on Wednesday, September 26, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Displays by health providers on campus and in the community will encourage attendees to focus on issues relevant to young adults:

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.

Lunchtime walking club to encourage employee activity

A noon-hour walking club is aimed at getting UWindsor faculty and staff out of their offices and on their feet, says organizer Frank Jeney, a fitness coordinator at the Forge.

The club is free to join; participants meet each Monday and Wednesday in front of the CAW Student Centre to walk from 12:10 to 12:50 p.m., “early enough to get back to work,” notes Jeney.

He is encouraging employees to engage in some healthy competition between departments.
