Cupcakes capture attention of campus community

A cupcake giveaway Wednesday in the CAW Student Centre served its purpose of bringing attention to the University’s 50th anniversary, organizers say.

“We had a really nice turnout,” says chief communications officer Holly Ward. “It is important for us to make sure the campus community is aware of what we’re doing. We will be launching advertising soon, but the current students and employees are really a core part of the celebration.”

Students receiving a Windsor welcome

Classes haven’t even started yet, and already Itunu Adekoya is learning a lot.

A first-year student of biochemistry and biotechnology, she was one of almost 300 participants in International Student Orientation. She said Sunday’s opening session was very informative.

“I learned that culture shock happens to everybody, that it’s good to stay safe on campus. I learned about visas and the study permit. I learned about Lancer sports,” said Adekoya, a native of Lagos, Nigeria.

She said she chose to study in Canada for its diversity.
