Prospective students check out UWindsor by the busload

The University of Windsor attracted thousands of student to its Fall Open House on Saturday, November 5, among them two buses full of visitors from the Greater Toronto Area.

Student ambassador Zack Grosh, a fourth-year UWindsor drama student, boarded the bus at 6:30 a.m. to accompany the visitors. He says many were curious about campus life, residences and the differences between majors of study.

“A lot of questions were about the UWindsor community, how close-knit it is and how different programs get along and work with each other,” Grosh says.
