"Strike Camp" is ACES

The Association of Continuing Education and Studies has decided to pitch in and help out parents in need during the current teachers' strike.

The "Strike Camp," run by members of ACES, will offer a number of activities and numerous academic events like visiting green houses or the art gallery on campus.

"We are trying to offer a little more thinking than playing," said Sharri James, a director of the camp. If the strike continues for a prolonged time, ACES plans to make use of the provincial government's education website.

The camp runs daily from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Rm. 257 of the University Community Centre.

Donut delight

As Western's United Way campaign begins its wrap-up week, there are many events planned to end the campaign with a bang.

It will begin today at 11:30 to 1:30 p.m. in the University Community Centre atrium with a Timbit eating contest sponsored by Tim Horton's. Anyone who would like to enter can sign up at the table and for $1 will receive five Timbits, explained University Students' Council United Way commissioner John Bayliss.

Donut eaters must consume the Timbits without their hands and the fastest muncher will receive two tickets for Western Film, he added.

Be aware of your safety

This week is sexual assault awareness week at Western and campus groups will be ensuring students are informed about personal safety.

Cindy Kopko, student coordinator for Students Reducing Interpersonal Violence Through Education, said the group will have information booths from 4:30 to 7 p.m. at different residences all week.

Western's Womens' Issues Network will also have information booths in the University Community Centre and on Wednesday and Friday at noon will be putting on short plays depicting assault situations.

Mike Foster, the University Students' Council campus safety commissioner, said there will be a radio show on CHRW tomorrow at 6:30 p.m. with guests from the campus police and crisis counsellors.
