Guys & Girls: But it gets a little boring once you start noticing that all of them (with the exception of a select few) wear:
a) Black leggings
b) Leather boots or Uggs
c) Top from American Apparel or UWO Hoodie

1 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Most people at Western are shallow, superficial and have a false sense of entitlement. They only wear American Apparel and Ugg boots.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Lots of girls seem to wish to conform to a certain stereotype. They all shop at the same places and wear the same clothes. The guys are pretty laidback and normal. Overall the people at UWO are very good looking.

5 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Western students are very fashionable and good looking. You will not find students on campus in pajama pants, and not very often do you even see students is sweatpants. There is a vibrant social social for Western students. It is a large school so it is easy to find a niche and go with it.

Western has a reputation for being full of beautiful people—but this is fully dependent on your taste. The typical Western girl has long, blonde hair and wears a flannel shirt from Aritzia, leggings from American Apparel, and Ugg boots. The typical Western guy has short hair, boot-cut jeans, and a Lacoste, Hollister, or Abercrombie polo shirt. However, this doesn't mean that there aren't other types of people on campus that aren't welcomed and celebrated. Yet, this type seems to make up about 70 percent of Western students. If you're attracted to unconventional, counter-culture people, you might have problems finding them here.

Students are sexually promiscuous, as they probably are on most University campuses. One-night stands happen all the time, but since students prevail in the bars, it isn't as dangerous as going home with a random in a city. The chances of being in a relationship at the University are about 50/50. If you find a boy/girlfriend, good for you. If you don't, embrace being single. Most of Western is.

Social Scene
"Party, party, party." That's the motto of students at Western. If you aren't at a bar, you're having a brew on campus. If you aren't having a brew, you're sharing a table with your friends at the library and studying for about 20 minutes total. Lifelong friendships are a milestone of the University experience, and UWO students take complete advantage of the social opportunities college brings.
Hookups or Relationships?
In first and second years, the bar is a huge novelty for Western's younger students, so hookups are extremely common. One-night stands frequently occur. As the years progress, people will get into relationships, but in general, many students (especially boys) prefer singledom.
Dress Code
Western guys and girls usually abide by an unspoken dress code. During the day, girls wear Ugg boots and clothes from American Apparel or Aritzia. Boys wear Hollister or Abercrombie. At night, the same dress code applies, but generally with a tighter, shorter preference for girls, and a popped collar for boys.
