CAMPUS LIFE

Western’s campus cool: past and present collides

Gazette Staff/2004
OLD BUILDINGS AND NEW ROBOTS. Western’s campus offers its visitors chic, traditional and futuristic elements in one cool setting.

Western’s markers of the past

Renowned for being one of the most beautiful university campuses in the country, the grounds of Western have a rich history. As students, we walk the campus everyday without really giving its origins much thought; it’s hard to imagine Western looking any other way than the way we see it now.


VR in Western’s Research Park

Hidden behind the storied halls of Saugeen-Maitland Hall, across the formidable currents of the Thames River and past the treacherous vehicular dangers of Windermere Rd. sits an area of the university shrouded in mystery and intrigue — the Western Research Park.


SHARC research goes swimmingly

Dr. Evil may have created sharks “with laser beams on their friggin’ heads,” but Western has a different kind of shark — one that’s useful and innovative.


The dirt on the “clean room”

As many Western students living away from their parents can attest, a “clean room” is often a foreign concept. In the Photonics and Nanotechnology Laboratory in the Western Research Park, however, a “clean room” is a reality.


This Wind Tunnel really blows

The CN Tower, the Sears Tower, the World Trade Center and the Confederation Bridge. What do all of these structures have in common? They have all been tested in Western’s Boundary Layer Wind Tunnel.
