Group to read writings on melancholy

Melancholy is common among students, making it the perfect subject for a reading group, says Alan Davies.

The English department’s writer-in-residence for the fall 2011 semester, he is hosting the free public reading group The Course on Melancholy starting this evening — Monday, September 19.

“The course will focus on texts that express or discuss melancholy,” Davies says. “It gives students the opportunity to explore the relationship between literature and their own feelings.”

Free barbecue to celebrate start of school year

Who says there’s no such thing as a free lunch? The entire campus community—students, faculty and staff—is invited to celebrate the start of the academic year with a free barbecue on Tuesday, September 13, from noon to 1:30 p.m. (while supplies last) in the quad between Dillon and Chrysler Halls. This event will proceed rain or shine!

The event is hosted by Special Events, Office of the President; the Alumni Association; and the University of Windsor Students' Alliance, with thanks to sponsors Food & Catering Services.
