So you have questions about Western? Well, we have the answers to all your frequently asked questions and some you haven't even asked yet.

Q: Who is Western's president?
A: Sir Davenport, the French Knight.

Q: Who is the most hated club on campus?
A: Purple Spur. Why? You try sitting behind the beer-happy, flag-waving crew at a football game.

Q: Why do all Western engineers have to wear a leather jacket?
A: Still one of life's greatest mysteries.

Q: Why does every other university in Canada hate us?
A: Recent studies have shown Purple Envy is the number one cause of anger and jealousy among university-aged students.

Q: Who are Western's main sports rivals?
A: Trick question. Remember, everyone hates us since we're better.

Q: Who did Western piss off when the school was built?
A: Golfers – the school was built on a golf course.

Q: Which program is sought after by approximately 50 per cent of Western students?
A: The Ivey School of Business. The insane bloodlust and competitiveness surrounding admission to its hallowed halls would have made for a wonderful Melrose Place script.

Q: True or false? The same person who designed Saugeen also designed penitentiaries in Kingston?
A: Does it matter? Residents will live to learn that everyday in Saugeen is like an episode of the prison drama Oz, with some heterosexual sex added to the mix.

Q: What disastrous USC event from last year will you and many of your children be paying for ?
A: Operation Massive – lest we forget about the failed rave that cost students over $30 000.

Q: What are the most overused words of student politicians at Western.
A: Student, Code, of, and Conduct.

Q: Will the Wave (restaurant and club in the University Community Center) break even this year?
A: Not unless they hire all of the laid-off exotic dancers from the recently defunct Fabulous Forum.

Q: Which bus route consistently fails to meet its promised schedule?
A: All of them.

Q: What weeks will you (or at least should you) go to your classes?
A: The first and last.

Q: How many Tim Horton's exist on campus?
A: Too many. But despite this, you'll still have the pleasure of wasting hours in line for your coffee.
