Penguin

There’s a New Penguin in Town...

...who needs a name! Our feathered friend has arrived at the ELC to keep everyone smiling during the Continuing Studies Building construction. Staff and students are invited to submit their favourite penguin names for a chance to win a UVic lunch for 4! Submit entries to conversationpartner@uvic.ca by November 23. GOOD LUCK!
