This blog evolved from our yearly newsletter publication of the same name and gives us the opportunity to keep connected with you.  Our goal is to continue to share information and highlight student experiences.

Western is a diverse community, one where you have the unique opportunity to learn from international and domestic student peers and hear stories about many different cultures. Our hope is that this blog will allow you to learn more about Western, Canada, and the world, while also providing you with a venue to share your thoughts and experiences.

The International Connections blog is made possible by our wonderful team of Student Blog Volunteers committed to providing you with useful and meaningful content. If you have an idea for a blog post or if you would like to submit a personal reflection about your experience in Canada or abroad, please do not hesitate to contact us at! All are welcome to contribute and make this blog the best it can be!
