The good people of University of Windsor's Employee Engagement & Development have just issued you a challenge: How many stairs can you climb in 20 days? Enough to reach the peak of Mount Everest? How about Mont Tremblant?
If you are looking for a good place to start stair climbing on March 11th, you could do well by trekking the heights of Leddy Library. The stairs from the basement to the 4th floor of our Main Building is made up of 90 steps, or 7.5 flights.
