Touring bear rolls through Windsor

With 10 provinces to visit since May 1, it has been a long six months for Ursula, but Windsor marked the end of the road.

The polar bear has been touring Canada’s universities to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada, and this week was UWindsor’s turn.

During her time in town, Ursula visited some of the campus hotspots, hung out with some students, and even took advantage of the University’s proximity to Detroit to do a little cross-border sightseeing.
