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.

Campus to host guidance counsellors Friday

Hosting guidance counsellors from across the province will give the University of Windsor a chance to showcase its campus and city amenities, says Katia Benoit, acting director of student recruitment.

Regional Dialogue will bring representatives from every Ontario university to the Centre for Engineering Innovation on Friday, May 3, to meet with high school guidance counsellors.

Cross-province tour offering information to UWindsor applicants

Stops at seven cities through Ontario will provide UWindsor applicants with information about financial aid and scholarship opportunities, residence, student life on campus, as well as what makes Windsor’s learning-centred environment distinctive.

The receptions are aimed at applying students and their families. Current students, faculty and staff offer them a chance to learn more about academic programs and student life at the University of Windsor.

Open House welcomes thousands to campus

Justine Bergen was glad to lend a hand during the UWindsor Open House on Friday.

The fourth-year biology student stood outside the northwest corner of Essex Hall, directing visitors to the free lunch in Vanier Hall, and from there to presentations on academic programs held in buildings across the campus.

“It’s nice to be able to help them out,” she said. “Some of them go by, looking like they know where they’re going, but others are holding their maps trying to get oriented.”

Campus to roll out red carpet to visitors today

More than 1500 guests pre-registered for today’s UWindsor Open House, says Zora Savic, but the campus can expect more visitors than that: “We always have students who register at the last minute.”

Student communication and events coordinator in the liaison office, she says the presentations on academic programs form the heart of the day.

“Getting a chance to meet our faculty members is a highlight for the students and their families,” Savic says. “They love to hear from professors about what to expect.”
