Look who came to visit

March 17th, 2020

This little racoon came to visit the Communications Office March 6. He hung out on the outside of this window, napping and grooming himself, for at least five and a half hours. He attracted a lot of attention and we enjoyed his visit! Chris Adam of the Sustainability Office said that when it gets mild, they go out exploring looking for something to eat. If you spot wildlife on campus, or your new home campus, send us a photo and description of your encounter using the news contribution form.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

March 17th, 2020

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Perhaps a way to celebrate this year is to take part in a Shamrock Scavenger Hunt. In many neighbourhoods, people are hanging a shamrock in their window for the kids to find when they are out for a walk. For more info, see the Read More link. You could always celebrate on social media and share your shamrock there too.
