Residence Sophs

Three residence sophs posing in front of Ontario Hall stairs.

Sophs are Western's beloved orientation leaders who welcome new students to campus every year. Sophs volunteer their time as spirit leaders, academic role models, and mentors to help students connect with campus resources in their first year. The Sophing experience is unlike any other!


"Sophing has helped me grow into the person I've always wanted to be. Without a doubt, it has been the best decision of my life." - Sunshine, Elgin Hall
