Wet weather not enough to dampen spirits as students prepare for semester’s start

A little rain didn’t stop UWindsor students from enjoying start-of-school activities, as they took in everything from the traditional “purpling” of first-year engineers to the Lancer Cup’s Tough Lancer competition.

Eager shoppers thronged the Campus Bookstore and some intrepid souls even ventured into libraries in preparation for the start of classes Thursday.

Lecture to explore theology of non-violence

Drawing on his monastic experiences and dialogue with Eastern religions, Catholic thinker Thomas Merton developed a theology of non-violence, which is the subject of a free public lecture in Assumption University’s Freed-Orman Centre on Thursday, November 24, at 4:30 p.m.

Norman King – professor emeritus in the UWindsor Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures; Assumption University’s Stephen Jarislowsky Chair in Religion and Conflict; and director of the School of Theology at Iona College – will explore “Thomas Merton on Non-Violence.”
