THREESOMES. First years Joanna Nawracaj (sitting), Vanessa
Six (white shirt) and Christine Reid (yellow shirt) are
triple-rooming at Delaware Hall.
Looking at the changing
face of O-Week
Orientation Week - some would argue what used
to be the epitome of the "college" experience has
in many ways faded to a shadow of its former self.
With the onslaught of the double cohort, the
first-year class participating in this year's O-Week activities
has been the largest ever accommodated at Western. As a result,
O-Week has undergone many structural and organizational changes
to help facilitate the transition to university life for this
younger incoming class.
Seeing triple: Delaware
crammed for double cohort

Thirty rooms in Delaware Hall have been equipped
with bunk beds and made to accommodate three students instead
of two, said Susan Grindrod, associate vice-president of housing
and ancillary services. Prospective students were informed about
this and even given the opportunity to request a three person
room, she explained. Students were assigned to these rooms randomly,
as with all other residence rooms, Grindrod added.
