UWO - Saugeen rez?

A photo of frowningcat frowningcat
Hey guys, so I've been wondering a lot about the Saugeen residence at the University of Western Ontario. I've been reading a lot about it, and basically found that it's reputation as "party central" are somewhat exaggerated. I also heard that because there are so many people in the building, the food quality is much higher than the other residences.

Can anyone tell me from experience what some of the major drawbacks to Saugeen are? I don't plan on partying every night, but I do want to occasionally...should I not select a quiet floor because of this? Really, any info you can give about your experience at Saugeen would help a lot...I feel almost guilty wanting it as my top choice after seeing so many people cry after learning they got put into it.

P.s. I've also heard the rooms in Saugeen are very small compared to other residences...is that true?

Hey! I'm a residence tour guide this year and I've been around the residences. I can tell you that regardless of which rez you get put in, you'll end up loving it. Sure some people say that Saugeen is really trashy since the halls are always dirty, but I live in Elgin and I can tell you that many people's suites aren't any cleaner. Elgin is a great place, but sometimes I wish I was in Saugeen too!

I lived in Saugeen this year and LOVED it - it was my fourth choice, (after all the other traditional residences and before the suites), and originally I was depressed that I was in "the worst residence", but I was sadly mistaken. Saugeen is amazing too - we're a 1250-person family, and you just can't understand Saugeen unless you've lived there!

Also, I lived on a quiet floor - my floor was not antisocial at all! In fact, five of us are sophs next year (that's a lot, just trust me on that one), and we consistently got noise complaints from the floor just below us. By the same token, I was on a Varsity sports team this year and had to wake up at 5:20 for practices, so I really appreciated being able to come home to a respectful floor. :)
