One-on-Ones

In an effort to give incoming students a wide variety of resources to receive help and advice, we are hosting one-on-ones, a unique service where we directly connect you with a current Western student. 

Through different platforms such as texting, calling, Facetiming, and Facebook Messenger, prospective students can be paired up with an upper year student to receive help tailored to their specific needs. We will try and connect you with a student in the same program and faculty for academic questions and ones in the same residence for all questions about rez life. 

Essentially, one-on-ones allow for personalized advice and a direct, immediate source of answers to your questions. We're excited to talk to you soon!

DISCLAIMER

* The One on Ones services is NOT in any way affiliated with Western University. By signing up for this service, you understand that you will be speaking with a current university student based on their own personal experiences. For information about official resources, please visit the official UWO website.

WHY SHOULD I SCHEDULE A ONE-ON-ONE?

Although there are a plethora of resources available to ask questions such as Reddit forums and Facebook groups, they may be answered by unhelpful students or left completely unanswered. Furthermore, it can be intimidating to even post on such public platforms! Being so, we wanted to have a service dedicated to helping you on a personal level.

Having someone to talk to about absolutely anything as you prepare to enter this difficult transition from high school to university is an invaluable resource. You can ask for study tips, how to make friends in residence, which elective courses to take, and everything else in between.

To accommodate everyone's preferences, we offer this service through different platforms: Facebook Messenger, iMessage, email, calling, and Facetime. There, you and your student mentor can set up a time and date to chat and just like that, you have a new friend that's here to help!

Please do not be shy to utilize this resource. We know that you guys may be anxious about entering such a new and unfamiliar environment and thus will have many questions. We're happy to help, and we hope to see you soon! :)

To schedule a one-on-one, please fill in the form below. We will try and match you up as best as possible to a current Western student in the same program or faculty.

When you submit a request to schedule, we will notify you within 24 hours that we have received your message. From there, we will inform you of the next steps and will set up your contact. 

If you have a specific topic of questions (academics/social life/residence), be sure to add that in your submission. This way, we can ensure that we are matching you up to the student that is most informed in that area. 

We look forward to meeting you!
