Off-Campus Dining: not a lot of options

Athletics: Many sports to choose from.

Campus Dining: The campus meal plan is pretty flexible. There are many popular restaurants that we can use our meal plan towards, like Tim Hortons, Harvey's, Pizza Pizza, Jack Astor's, Yogurty's, etc. You can also use it to pay for food within the residence buildings and on campus and the food they serve isn't bad. They all have fresh fruit and salad bars all the time and a specialty bar, like Stir Fry bar each night.

Academics: My program is pretty competitive, everyone is trying to get into medical school as soon as they can, so it's definitely hard to stay in it. Many of our profs however are physicians so they have real world experience and cases to talk about to help us learn, and if they aren't they are very knowledgeable in what they are teaching.

Campus Strictness: The campus police are pretty strict when it comes to drug use on campus obviously, but using alcohol is more lenient.

Off-Campus Housing: Finding off-campus housing at Western is VERY easy. Most students live off campus after their first year so there are a plethora of places to rent with a couple of friends. Housing is affordable and you can easily find somewhere close to school. It's a competitive process though, as everyone wants the cheapest place, closest to the school, in the best house they can get.

Academics: LOVE Western. There is a great balance of working hard and learning to relax while at school. The professors are very knowledgeable and find interesting ways to teach the material. I've made a ton of friends both in my program and out of it which definitely makes the experience for enjoyable.

Transportation: London transit is the worst. I can't count the number of times that a bus has driven passed me because "there is not enough space" or "doesn't pick up this location" even though there are 7-8 empty spots on the bus, or the bus mustang express infront stops for us. LONDON TRANSIT IS THE MOST UNRELIABLE FORM OF TRANSIT...

Nightlife: Great Nightlife.
All bars all good except JBRs, NEVER GO TO JBRs, WORST BAR EVER, Bad Service, Ass**** Bouncers, and Overpriced drinks NEVER, I Repeat, Never go To JBRs.

One thing is certain: Western students love their University. Known for its beautiful campus and steadfast school pride, Western offers an "all-American" experience in a Canadian school. The campus is large, but it's easy to see a familiar face wherever you go. London is a fantastic city for the University, and the students truly run the town. Over time, the city may seem small for the more cosmopolitan students, but Western's school spirit for Homecoming and other rowdy days is irreplaceable. Academically, Western is renowned for its role as a research university and subsequently for its reputable professors. The staff genuinely cares for students, which is unexpected for such a large school. For certain programs and courses, Western isn't difficult in terms of its academics; as long as you do your work, you will succeed. 

In the Canadian workforce, the University of Western Ontario has a stellar reputation. However, aside from the Richard Ivey School of Business, companies in the States might not recognize the University. Regardless, the school offers many opportunities that provide experiences that will make all students prepared for their future professional roles. It is rare to find a student that dislikes his or her Western experience, and it's common for many to stay for five-year programs or graduate school because they have so much pride in the University. Western is a great choice for those seeking a true university experience with an immense amount of school spirit.
