on a scale of 1 to 10; i would rate western at an 8. i absolutely love it there, the atmosphere, the people everything. i think they could use some improving on their wireless internet connections and the parking situation.

It's beautiful, cultural, and new! I'm excited to be attending there in the fall, because I fell in love when I went on the tour. Also, it's surrounded by active students.
