Student centre skate seeking sponsors

Organizers of the holiday celebration Skate the Date invite campus departments to sponsor activities for students who will enjoy seasonal Canadian traditions.

From Nov. 27 to 29 in the Student Courtyard, a synthetic ice rink will centre games and activities:

  • a skate with Santa;
  • the Don’t be a Grinch pancake giveaway;
  • a coats and cans drive — all donations stay on campus;
  • holiday carollers;
  • jingle mingle golf;
  • cookie decorating;
  • free s’mores, hot chocolate, eggnog, and more.

In the student centre Commons, a market will offer a variety of products perfectly suited for gifts and holiday entertaining.

“It’s a wonderful time to enjoy the cool outdoor weather before the hustle of exams,” says Sandra Riccio-Muglia, director of events for the student centre. “We don’t need to stray off-campus to find holiday fun. We’ll make our own fun right here!”

She says a limited number of sponsorships starting as low as $100 allow departments to promote their services to a large, appreciative audience. To inquire about securing your spot or if you would like to take part in offering another sponsored holiday-themed activity, contact Riccio-Muglia at 519-253-3000, ext. 3230, or
