Gettin' down to business

The Richard Ivey School of Business won first place at the Canada-Wide Undergraduate Business Games on the weekend at Concordia University in Montreal. This marked Ivey's third win since the games started in 1992.

Brad Bowness, a member of the winning Ivey team, said 46 students represented the school in events ranging from football to a debate, in addition to a very spirited cheer-off.

Seventeen Canadian undergraduate business schools competed in the games, which are set to be held at Western next year.

You are my sunshine


Third-year sociology student Chad Lindsay was a ray of sunshine on an otherwise cloudy day Jan. 11 as he appeared as the Toronto Sun's Sunshine Boy.

Lindsay said he was shopping at the Eaton Centre in Toronto just before Christmas when a photographer from the newspaper asked if she could take his picture for the feature. After initially saying no, his friend talked him into posing for the camera. "I was surprised when I saw it, I had forgotten about it."
