  • Our son is in his 4th year here and loves it! We are just glad he is in a place where he is being challenged and is growing! 
  • As a science undergraduate, I feel sorry for some chemistry student who had terrible years at Western as comment shows. Hopefully everyone could get on his/her own track and carry on. I also did some chemistry courses with Prof. Calvin and Prof. Griffiths, personally I think they are really responsible and helpful. You could only get a sense for how good or bad the university is when you study somewhere else. When I exchange to a so called top university in the UK in my third year, well I would say Western DOES offer much much better science programs and study experiences. Won't regret to be at Western.
  • The first 2 weeks of September this school bothers the whole North London neighborhoods up to a 5 km radius with the loud music "bass" boom at late hours of the night. It is not fair for us as property owners and tax payers that live near by to put up with crap like this. The University and the City should respect the by-laws at all times! Any excessive noise is offensive to normal citizens that have to work the next day!
  • Best Canadian university. Good mix between strong academics and extra curriculars.
  • From my experience at the open house, Western has great facilities, and prestigious programs (e.g. Ivey Business).
  • Good scenery and athletic center. Western has decent academic focus, especially in medical science and the Ivey Business school. It also has a good philosophy program. Small class sizes in less selective programs may lead to greater opportunities in research, etc.
