Surprises in store for holiday luncheon: caterer

Last year’s Mingle and Jingle holiday luncheon for faculty and staff was a great collegial event, says catering manager Dean Kissner—and he is hoping to top it this year.

With a theme of “The Big Chill,” this year’s holiday luncheon is set for noon Thursday, December 13, in Vanier Hall’s Winclare Room A.

“We have a lot of little holiday surprises planned,” says Kissner. “We don’t want to give away too much, because we want our guests to experience delight when they walk in.”

Holiday luncheon to take form of chilly reception

With a theme of “The Big Chill,” this year’s holiday luncheon for faculty and staff promises the company of colleagues in a casual setting, says catering manager Dean Kissner.

“We are doing the same type of stand-up reception as last year, with several new themed food stations,” he says. “Our guests will enjoy a festive holiday setting.”

The event will run from noon to 2 p.m. Thursday, December 13, in Vanier Hall’s Winclare Room A. Admission is $10, which includes tax and a glass of wine.

Students receiving a Windsor welcome

Classes haven’t even started yet, and already Itunu Adekoya is learning a lot.

A first-year student of biochemistry and biotechnology, she was one of almost 300 participants in International Student Orientation. She said Sunday’s opening session was very informative.

“I learned that culture shock happens to everybody, that it’s good to stay safe on campus. I learned about visas and the study permit. I learned about Lancer sports,” said Adekoya, a native of Lagos, Nigeria.

She said she chose to study in Canada for its diversity.
