Free barbecue draws welcome crowd

Hundreds of students, faculty, staff and officials joined the Organization of Part-time University Students (OPUS) for its annual barbecue, September 22 outside the CAW Student Centre.

“There was a tremendous turnout,” said OPUS staffer Steve Jancev. “Special thanks to Food and Catering Services, our volunteers and the UWindsor Photography Club for their support.”

Attendees received free student discount cards from the Canadian Federation of Students, information materials and other giveaways from Campus Dental Centre, Green Shield, OPIRG-Windsor and Campus Ministry. They also enjoyed lively music provided by a DJ sponsored by CUPE Local 1001.

Jancev also expressed gratitude to high-ranking administrators who turned out, including UWindsor president Alan Wildeman, provost Douglas Kneale, and Michael Khan, dean of human kinetics.
