Reminder: families invited to Boo at the U tonight

The children of UWindsor faculty and staff are invited to turn out tonight for Boo at the U, the annual evening of treats organized by residence staff and students.

University employees are invited to bring their children to Winclare room in Vanier Hall from 6 to 8 p.m., where volunteers will give little trick-or-treaters their own treat bag. Guests then make the rounds to each station for activities and candy in a spooky but safe environment.

St. Patrick’s Day activities offer residence students a sober alternative

According to Ontario’s ministry of health, alcohol is the most commonly-used drug among the province’s youth, and alcohol-related trauma is a significant and preventable cause of death among young Canadians.

That is reason enough for the University’s residences to host I Clover Sober during the week of St. Patrick’s Day, says Lynn Charron. Team lead for Residence Life, she says the project provides opportunities to have fun that don’t include alcohol, and educates students about staying safe if they do drink.
