Student government to host viewing of US presidential inauguration

The University of Windsor Students’ Alliance will stream live television coverage of US president Barack Obama’s second inauguration, today at 11 a.m. in the CAW Student Centre’s Ambassador Auditorium.

“Some students have been asking for a space where everyone can come view this important event,” says Josh Paglione, the alliance’s director of student life.

The viewing party is free and open to the campus community. More details are available on the event Facebook page.

Students, faculty encouraged to tune out and turn off Friday

Smartphones, computers, laptops and tablets—being plugged in all the time can drive you crazy.

As a finale to Mental Health Awareness Week, Screen Free Day invites members of the UWindsor community to take a break from electronics on Friday, January 18.

The technology fast is a project of Campus Ministry, which has arranged other activities to keep people’s hands busy, including board games all day in the Assumption University lounge.

Student video sends anti-bullying message

Kaitlyn Quigley, a fourth-year student of film and geography, packs a big message in a short film.

She won a video contest on the theme “Stand up to bullying,” organized by the University of Windsor Students’ Alliance as part of its Anti-Bullying Week program. The victory carries a chance to have her one-minute video viewed by students across campus, as well as a $100 cash prize.

Charity fashion show to reflect diversity of taste—and models

Organizers of a charity fashion show on campus this week are making an effort to capture the glitz of a high-end presentation, without reflecting stereotypical preconceptions of what makes a good model.

The show, labelled “Fearless,” is presented by Students for Charitable Enterprise in partnership with the Womyn’s Centre as a fundraiser for Hiatus House, a social service agency offering confidential intervention for families experiencing domestic violence.
