Faculty and staff Mingle and Jingle all the way

A sweet table worthy of Willy Wonka, complete with a river of chocolate and a traditional horse-drawn carriage ride, were some of the highlights of this year’s Mingle and Jingle faculty and staff Christmas event held on Tuesday over the lunch hour in the Winclare room.

The stand-up party, with hors d’oeuvres, dessert and coffee stations is a departure from the formal sit-down luncheons of previous years and gives faculty and staff a chance to visit and catch up with friends, says catering manager Dean Kissner.

Children’s books provide a view of earlier times

“To my dear little Margaret – a very happy Christmas, with love from Granny.”

This loving inscription, written 111 years ago, lives between the covers of a children’s book protected in the University of Windsor’s Rare Books and Special Collections – preserved for interpretation by scholars and historians who not only study it for its beautiful language and illustrations, but also for what it says about the times in which it was published.

Savings add up at University Bookstore

The savings are outrageous during the University Bookstore’s faculty and staff appreciation day, says marketing manager Martin Deck. 

All UWindsor employees are eligible for a discount on Friday, December 16—10 percent off all purchases, excluding course materials, textbooks and computers. Giftware and board games were already reduced, and the discounts multiply.

“By combining the 10 percent discount with our half-priced sale books, customers can save 60 percent off the already-reduced prices,” Deck said.
