Sunny day welcomes open house visitors

Sunny skies shone down on almost 2,700 visitors to campus Saturday during the University’s Fall Open House.

It was the first at UWindsor for provost Douglas Kneale, who pronounced the event “outstanding,” complimenting organizers for their dedication to welcoming prospective students and their families.

“There was a buzz on campus: the music, the weather, the chili lunch, the tours, the information fair, the parking—everything was perfect,” Dr. Kneale said.

He added that holding the event on a weekend also proved popular with guests: “Every person I spoke to thought that the Saturday timing was the right decision.”

Zora Savic, communication and events coordinator in the student recruitment office, said the event involves students, faculty and staff from every area of campus, from the grounds crews and food services to academic advisors and professors.

“We are so fortunate to be able to count on the enthusiasm of so many people,” she said. “Everyone pitched in to do their part and I know it is appreciated by people considering where to study.”

Spring Open House is slated for March 5. For those who can’t wait that long, student ambassadors conduct guided tours Monday through Saturday; schedule one online.
