Santa Claus parade promises a Dickens of a good time

The UWindsor entry in Saturday’s Santa Claus parade will offer a Scrooge-eye view, says organizer Sandra Davis. The residence life manager says the float reflects the event’s theme, “A Dickens Christmas.”

“Our spectacular entry depicts Scrooge’s view on Christmas morning,” she says. “As he throws open the shutters, he looks across the town square to see people frolicking in traditional festive activities.”

Volunteers from residence and the University of Windsor Students’ Alliance will skate around a Christmas tree, build a snowman, or join in carolling.

Residence representatives make their mark at regional conference

With a theme of “Making our Mark!” a delegation from UWindsor residence took home several major awards from the Great Lakes Affiliates of College and University Residence Halls conference this past weekend – including the right to host the event next year.

“This is the first time in 20 years that this conference has travelled to Canada and the first time ever hosted at the University of Windsor,” said Jacqueline Mellish, residence life coordinator for Macdonald and Electa halls.

Lecture to explore feminism and argumentation

Feminists criticize the extent to which logic and other models for argumentation eliminate important contextual elements and force specific interpretations as if they were neutral, says philosophy professor Catherine Hundleby.

She will explore the subject in a free public lecture entitled "Feminism and Argumentation" on Thursday, September 8, at 3 p.m. in the seminar room of Parker House, 105 Sunset Avenue.
