Also known as just plain old Western, The University of Western Ontario is located in London, Ontario. It is home to the Mustangs and the Purple and Proud! And proud this place is, indeed—its alumni association is the second largest of all Canadian universities with over 250,000 alumni working all over the world.
Why are Western alumni proud to be a former Mustang? Let’s find out!
