Food bank feeds those in need

The University Students' Council food bank has rolled out the welcome mat for those in need and is also seeking donations.

The food bank opened last year after a student's proposal was put forward to the USC, said VP-campus issues Sera Vavala.

"[The bank] is typically for single parents most in need, but any student is welcome to come," she said.

Hungry souls in search of food and students looking to donate can go to Room 315A of the University Community Centre.

Clubs and faculty councils are encouraged to organize their own food drives at pubs and the USC is hopeful residence council food drives will yield results as well, she said.

All inquiries can be directed to usc.foodbank@uwo.ca.

Principal 'happy' about Huron

Ramona Lumpkin is the new principal of Huron University College and she couldn't be happier about it.

"[I feel] really, really privileged and happy to be involved with such a wonderful college," Lumpkin said about her recent appointment.

Before coming to Western, Lumpkin was VP-learning and provost at Royal Roads University in British Columbia. She has also worked at the University of Windsor as dean of continuing education, Wayne State University as associate dean and the Kentucky Humanities Council as executive director. She received her PhD in 19th century literature.

"I will bring a very strong commitment to Huron as a liberal arts institution," she said, expressing a strong interest in Huron's involvement in community service.

Lumpkin's installation ceremony took place last Friday afternoon at Huron.
