The middle of the academic semester is a busy time for students as they work hard on assignments and prepare for midterm examinations. But for students at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology, the Wednesday before Reading Week brought and unexpected treat from the Office of the Provost.

Staff, faculty members and student volunteers from all university departments and faculties spent Valentine’s Day handing out 5,000 cookies to students at the university’s north and downtown Oshawa locations. The surprise treat came in packaging carrying a message of encouragement: “You are one smart cookie”.
