Campus gets early glimpse of Turtle Island Walk banners

The official dedication of Turtle Island Walk will take place on Thursday, Sept. 21, but the campus community got an early glimpse of the vibrant banners that will anchor the six prominent seating areas along the pedestrian thoroughfare this week.

The art featured on the banners is the work of First Nations artist Teresa Altiman who grew up on Walpole Island and draws inspiration from both the landscape and her indigenous heritage.

Children with ADHD in grades 4 and 5 sought for meditation program

A UWindsor professor is looking to give children with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder the greater self-control through meditation.

Psychology professor Carlin Miller is hosting the Mindful Living for Kids meditation program this fall and is seeking 24 to 30 children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in grades 4 and 5 to participate.

“School changes a lot for children in grades 3 and 4 and there are more expectations of independence,” said Dr. Miller.

UWindsor students confront illegal trade in rhino horn

It is so coveted that it’s worth more than its weight in gold.

Its intended use has long been proven ineffectual, and yet the demand is contributing to the obliteration of a species.

The illegal trade of rhinoceros horn in Africa is fraught with controversy and two University of Windsor business students have become engrossed in the issue.

“It’s just not fair to these animals,” said master of business administration student Fred Wilkins.
