Shinerama campaign sets ambitious target

Since its inception in 1968, the UWindsor Shinerama campaign has raised more than $170,000 for the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

This year, coordinator Johnathan Weedmark-King hopes to cross the $200,000 threshold.

“In order to reach this mark we are going to need the participation of various societies, departments, organizations, sororities, fraternities, businesses and clubs,” he says. “The ability to engage others and develop partnerships can accomplish some amazing things.”

Applications open now for Students Orienting Students

Sarah Hanik says helping new students settle in during Residence Move-in Day made her feel like a hero.

“It’s actually the best thing ever, because everyone loves you for helping them,” says the fourth-year behaviour, cognition and neuroscience major. “You’re the first people they meet and get to be their personal guide to the University.”

Hanik has volunteered for Students Orienting Students since her second year, helping with orientation activities, the campus Go Green Team, and greeting clients in the Advising Centre.
