Universities prepare for St Patrick’s Day Weekend


With St Patrick’s Day falling on the weekend this year, several universities have announced initiatives to help students through the weekend and have issued stern reminders of the consequences of disruptive behaviour. CTV News states that the University of Guelph will be offering an alcohol recovery room on campus this weekend to help reduce any potential strain on the local hospital. Brock University, Conestoga College, McMaster University, the University of Waterloo, and Wilfrid Laurier University have each reminded their student bodies of their student code of conduct and are discouraging students from hosting or attending large, unsanctioned gatherings. Brock is conducting a “Don’t Put the Bad in Badger” campaign with local police and bylaw officials to encourage students to be good neighbours.
