School of Creative Arts comes to life in downtown Windsor

January 4, 2018 marked a historic moment for students, faculty and staff at UWindsor’s School of Creative Arts.

Over the last four years, the late-19th-century Romanesque structure in the city’s downtown core reverberated with the frenzied sounds of construction.

But on Thursday, the notes from students practising piano and lectures by professors in classrooms drifted up to fill the lofty Windsor Armouries.

“So many people contributed to this project and now seeing it come to life is pretty incredible,” said University of Windsor President Alan Wildeman.
