WDBA Co-op students earn their ‘hat trick’

During Gordie Howe’s playing career, he was known for his skill and for being one of the most well-rounded players. He was also known for his own version of a ‘hat trick’. (For those who may not be familiar with the term, a hat trick is the feat of scoring three goals in a single game.)

Much like our project’s namesake, excellence at WDBA is achieved through teamwork, commitment and skill.

This season, WDBA added 13 new co-op students to its roster from the University of Windsor, St. Clair College, Western University and the University of Waterloo. The students come from the engineering, business, communications, information technology and library faculties.

Hear how each of our co-op students plan to earn their hat trick during their co-op season with Windsor-Detroit Bridge Authority in these videos produced by one of our Communications Co-op students.
