Career Education wins Head Start booth contest
The first step to success in university is just surviving the transition. That's what earned the Centre for Career Education booth top marks in last week's contest at the Head Start information fair.~
"Our theme is 'Finding your way in the jungle,' and that's what it's all about," explained co-op coordinator Sue Ross. The booth — still bearing the previous name, Co-operative Education and Career Services — featured stuffed jungle animals, inflated palm trees, and grass trim. Ross admitted going all out to repeat last year's title: "We're a little competitive in our office."
The displays were judged on the best use of the “Choose Your Own Adventure” theme, interactivity, visual appeal and the usefulness of the information displayed. Head Start, the academic orientation program, hosted about 1000 new students and their families through June 3.
Second-place honours went to the Leddy Library for its Jedi-themed "Don't join the dark side, become enlightened at Leddy" theme. Good information well presented earned third place for the Special Needs Program.
Co-op coordinator Lisa Antaya offers to help new University of Windsor students find their way through the jungle of employment education.
