Work underway on Welcome Centre construction

Near-record cold temperatures Wednesday couldn’t stop the University of Windsor from breaking ground on its Welcome Centre, now under construction at the corner of Wyandotte and Patricia streets.

Despite an unseasonable dusting of snow, a crew traced the building’s distinctive serpentine outline on the ground and invited dignitaries and guests to step inside for a quick ceremony to mark the occasion.

Public affairs, campaign and alumni offices offline to start week

UWindsor offices vacating the Assumption University building next week may be difficult to contact during their relocation.

Among the affected offices are University Campaign, Public Affairs and Communications, Alumni Affairs, Alumni and Donor Records and special events manager Mary-Ann Rennie. Operation of the online photo library database may also be disrupted.

Photographer seeking angles for book on campus life

With a coffee table book on the University of Windsor nearing completion, the project’s photographer Richard Bain says there still a few holes to be filled.

He has spent more than a year taking pictures of campus life for a book to be published in celebration of the University’s 50th anniversary in 2013. The hardbound volume will feature about 120 pages of full-colour photographs as well as essays on the University’s history and a foreword by professor emeritus Alistair MacLeod.

Bain says he has received a lot of support from faculty, staff and students.
