Social life at Ottawa U vs U of Calgary vs Waterloo.

I am trying to decide between those three. I currently live in Ottawa so if I stay here, I am not living on campus. From what I read on here so far, Waterloo is dead unless you go around to Laurier to party. What about University of Calgary? Anybody attending there, could you tell me about the social scene.

It's apparently a big time commuter school. It won't have the same atmosphere that a school like Laurier has, but I wouldn't consider it dead. There's still people who live on campus who will like to party.

I guess it's all a matter of how outgoing you are yourself and the ability to meet new people, which I am going to have to do a lot in Waterloo to try and get some connections in Laurier. I know the guy:girl ratio is pretty bad in Waterloo, but does that hold true only for specific programs like math and engineering? What about Life Sciences? :D
