Western is a huge school. In saying this, it has many pros and cons directly related to its size. First of all of your a science or research student, the resources and facilities available to you are second only to American Ivey’s and let’s not forget how cheep Canadian schools are in an international context. The huge size however can be daunting and lead to challenges at first. Western has a reputation for being a party school and this is certified the case hahah. London although a slightly shabby city, is centered around students with extensive night life, walking trails, a central river, and a stunningly manicured campus. The campus is huge but completely connected, it can take >20min to walk end to end. In terms of reputation, the Ivey school is consistently ranked #1 in Canada, and our grad school are extensive including Med, Law, Dentistry, and The arts. Housing is a bit expensive to most but a bargain compared to a Toronto. However don’t be fooled into think you live in Toronto, you don't, in facts, it’s rather arduous to get there although if you get the right train it takes about an hour. If you have an interest I guarantee there’s a club for it, no jokes Western is serious about extracurriculars. If sports are your thing we have the largest indoor gym in Canada and our varsity teams have an extensive list of Olympians among them. If you're looking for a highly social, academics focused school and don’t mind the size Western could be for you. Once again if you think size doesn’t matter, remember you’ll have no relationship with the prof of your 1000 person class so it’s something to consider. Alternatively, students at Kings uni or burschia uni which are affiliates have access to all western facilities and classes and even graduate with a western degree and the class sizes are much smaller and much more student focused. Food for thought.

UWO guaranteed the best student experience in Canada and they hold that title because the university believes in the foundation of growth through experience. If your looking for a fun educational journey, Western is a good choice in Canada. Along with their Ivy league business school - it’s all about experiential learning!
