Chad Brownlee (MDM Recordings Inc./ Universal Music Canada) has had a great few months in the country music world. He was nominated in 2012 for a Canadian Country Music Award in the Male Artist of the Year category and performed live on the nationally-broadcast awards show on the CBC last September.
Brownlee is currently touring through Canada and is making a stop in the Durham Region on March 13th. Tickets are now on sale at the Tuck Shop for $7.00 for students and $10.00 for guests. If any tickets are left over from the advance sale, they will be available at the door for students at $10.00 and $15.00 for guests. The event is all ages but get your tickets fast because there is limited space available and only one guest per student.

Creating your own clothing, such as t-shirts, shorts, and long sleeve shirts, just became easier for students and staff at Durham College and UOIT. Artist Den Print Studio, located in the Student Centre, above E. P. Taylor’s, is not only printing on paper, but are now printing logos and images on pretty much any article of clothing.
They started creating prints for clothing in the summer, but the business has picked up as students and staff found out about this service when classes started.

The campus tuck shops, along with the Student Association, are putting on a student appreciation event this week at DC and UOIT, giving full-time students a chance win an iPad mini.
Shop & Win runs from January 21st to the 25th and all students have to do is purchase any item from the north campus, the Whitby campus or downtown campus tuck shops to participate .
“There are three iPads to be won, one at each location,” said Jennifer Neitzel, coordinator of retail services at Durham College and UOIT.
Students receive one ballot per transaction and the draw for the iPad mini is on Monday, January 28th.
“The student will get a call Monday and they will have five days to come pick up their prize,” said Neitzel, “If they don’t come pick it up then we will draw a new name.”
Along with the draw all of the tuck shops have special on-sale items including large dollar coffees and pop, dollar chocolate bars and gum packs and $2.50 Monster energy drinks. Products and prices may very by location but each tuck shop has specialty items on sale for students.
“The winner has to be a current student at either Durham College or UOIT with a valid student card,” said Neitzel. “If you don’t want to purchase anything all you have to do is just fill out a questionnaire and we will give you a ballot to enter the draw.”
The draw ballots will not be given to students who purchase GO Transit passes or a refill on Durham Transit Presto passes. For your chance to win visit a Tuck Shop close to you!
