Diversity is good, Nazis hate it

An annual campaign hopes to showcase campus diversity through a variety of initiatives.

The Society of Graduate Students at Western is working with many groups in the community to present Diversity 2003. "[The purpose of the event is to] show students that our campus is a vibrant place where people can work together," said Jesse Greener, chairperson of the Diversity 2003 organizing committee, adding the event will network socially and ethnically diverse outside groups with other groups on campus.

According to a SOGS media advisory, the event will feature a keynote address from professor of education Rebecca Coulter and a panel discussion. The night will end with an artistic celebration of diversity, Greener said, adding people who want to become more involved will be able to meet and exchange ideas with various members of the community.

It will take place on Thu., Nov. 6, from 6 to 9 p.m. at the St. James Auditorium at Brescia University College. Admission is free.

Bikinis help keep track of months

Naked ladies will be gracing the months in a new calendar, only they will be wearing swimsuits and guys will be in there too.

The Purple Spur is gearing up for a swimsuit calendar to feature scantily clad Western boys and girls, with all proceeds going to charity, said Shawn Gibson, co-president of the Spur.

Proceeds from the calendar will go to support the Western chapter of Save the Children, a charity devoted to helping children suffering in poor conditions around the world, Gibson said.

"It's a great way to see the quality of the Western campus," Gibson said. "Everyone should have one in their rooms." Gibson said he is hoping the inaugural swimsuit calendar will become an annual thing.

A launch party with all the featured models and members of the Purple Spur will be held Nov. 14 at Club Phoenix, Gibson noted.

The calendars will be sold for $10 in the atrium of the University Community Centre from Nov. 17 to 21, or until supplies last.
