Work underway to create Campus Bookstore space

Progress toward relocating the Campus Bookstore to the ground floor of the CAW Student Centre is “very exciting,” says Anna Kirby, executive director of campus services.

“I can’t wait for people to see what that will look like in the fall,” she says. “They will be very pleased at what it offers to our students.”

Workers are currently clearing out the area that had been the Thirsty Scholar Pub. That space will house the bookstore, selling textbooks, school and office supplies, computers and computer supplies, UWindsor- and Lancer-themed apparel and a wide array of giftware.

Week of activities to promote education against bullying

In an effort to educate students about the serious implications of bullying, the University of Windsor Students’ Alliance has partnered with Windsor Pride to host a series of events next week— International Bullying Awareness Week.

“Bullying doesn’t end when students leave high school, it can continue into University or the workplace,” says Kim Orr, president of the alliance. “That’s why it is so important that we bring attention to the serious mental and physical effects that bullying can have on people.”

University offers student refunds for online access to course material

The University of Windsor will refund approximately 3,000 students a $70 ancillary fee payment they made for “access codes” that allow them to use online applications related to course material.

The refunds are being made to remain in compliance with a provincial tuition framework directive. Students can expect the refunds to be added to their accounts over the next several weeks.

Banners welcome visitors to CAW Student Centre

The adornment of the CAW Student Centre is now complete, with the addition of banners and signage to the exterior of the building.

Pennants reflecting Lancer pride lead along the east façade to a panel on the stair tower bearing the message “You. Windsor.”

Kimberley Orr, president of the University of Windsor Students’ Alliance, said the change will help to stamp the centre with the UWindsor identity. The full-time undergraduate student government split the $45,000 cost of the new materials with the Organization of Part-time University.

Decals give student centre a sense of place

Bright decals on the windows of the CAW Student Centre represent just the first in a series of steps to stamp a sense of identity on the building, says Kim Orr, president of the University of Windsor Students’ Alliance.

“We didn’t like how generic the student centre can feel sometimes,” she says. “Once you’re inside, you feel like you could be anywhere.”
