Services Day Allows Students To Get To Know UWSA – The Lance
During Clubs Week, the UWSA held a Services Day to feature and promote the UWSA Services. Do you know all the services that the UWSA has to offer? The Lance covered the event and wrote an article:
Since there are hundreds of groups, services and clubs at UWindsor, the university has many events to help students become more aware of what’s available.
So far just this semester, there was Clubs Day, showing all the clubs students could join. There was a Health Fair, containing all health-related university groups and services. Plus there was the Welcome Tent during Welcome Week, containing a wide range of services and groups available on campus.
With so much going on, it is easy for students to miss some of the opportunities. That is why the University of Windsor Student Association held its first ever UWSA Services Day as a way of highlighting what they specifically have to offer.
“I think the thing is sometimes I talk to students and they don’t actually know who the UWSA is or even that there’s a student government and they have no idea about the countless services we offer them,” said Larissa Howlett, the student groups coordinator at UWSA who came up with the Services Day idea. “So I thought it was important to have a UWSA Services day because it’s never been done before and it will help educate all those students who don’t know there is a government here working for them.”
There are more than seven services within UWSA including Shinerama, Afrofest, Peer Support Centre, Student Groups – Clubs and Societies, Walksafe, Womyn’s Centre and Campus Pride Centre. Each has different goals, Shinerama being a fundraiser raising money for cystic fibrosis; Afrofest being a group that hosts a week-long African Heritage celebration in February and the Peer Support Centre which is a drop-in location for students to find peer support. Many if not all were present for the educational event.
