MISCELLANY


A cosmic campus tour

No, they’re not shooting the latest Star Wars sequel on campus. That’s Employee Services Director Kathy Gray, in stellar costume, providing information about the Human Resources Division to some of the many U of S staff who took in Campus Passport ’99 on Oct. 14. Event co-ordinator Shannon Cossette says employees had more than 20 booths to visit on the main and lower floors of the Education Bldg. – and most were done on a space or alien theme. The displays featured photos, pamphlets and lively explanations of the role and operations of each sponsoring department. Visitors could also enter draws at many exhibits, and if they got their galactic passport stamped at more than 10 displays they could enter to win larger prizes.

Cossette says this year’s exhibitors included: the Campus Computer Store, Engineering Shops, Discrimination and Harassment Prevention Services, the Faculty Club, Purchasing, the Division of Audio-Visual Services, Financial Services, U of S Technologies Inc., Security Services, the Distance Learning Centre, Alumni & Development, Consumer Services, the Employee Assistance Program, and Extension Division.





Dental drivers

More than 60 College of Dentistry faculty, staff and students, along with dentists, took part in the second annual Dent McLeod Memorial Classic Golf Tournament, raising $600 for the Heart and Stroke Foundation. The event was held at the Willows Golf and Country Club. McLeod was a recent College graduate who died in 1998.

Lucky Food Services customer wins computer

Royal University Hospital Respiratory Services worker Todd Wellman’s twice-a-day coffee-break visits to the U of S Health Sciences building’s buffeteria have paid off nicely. Wellman, second from left, won a computer in the Back-to-School promotion put on from early September to early October by University Food Services and Coca-Cola Bottlling Ltd. Wellman was presented the computer Oct. 15 by, from left, Coke District Sales Manager Ward Edwards, Food Services Cash Operations Manager Lee MacPherson, and Food Services Assistant Director Brian Manning. Wellman calls the buffeteria staff "great – very friendly!" The promotion ran at nine of the 10 Food Services outlets on campus.
