Senators have helped to bring Western University a Fall Reading Week, beginning in the 2017-2018 school year.
Earlier final exam schedule release

Course Syllabi database
A database of course syllabi is now available on student central due to the help of the advocacy of the Western Student Senators. The course syllabi database will be helpful for students who wish to gain more detailed information on course content/structure before/during course registration. Check it out on Student Central under "Documentation"!
