Students speak out in support of skunk sanctuary

Students proposing the UWindsor campus as a sanctuary for the city’s skunks argue it could be a win-win-win solution, but University officials think the idea is a stinker.

Ronnie Haidar, president of the student group Save Our Skunks, says a catch-and-release on campus program would save local taxpayers euthanasia fees, provide educational experiences for students, and benefit the skunks—targeted for trapping by city council in its latest budget.

University’s app launch well-received

The myUWindsor app will definitely make student life easier, says Ronnie Haidar, but it may make faculty life more difficult.

“I feel sorry for professors because students are going to be playing with this in class,” the fourth-year business student said. “It’s so cool; there’s so much to explore.”

Haidar introduced the mobile app, which provides a wide array of campus information to students with iPhone, BlackBerry and Android smart devices, at a launch event Thursday to open Campus Technology Day 2012.
