Student Success Centre

The SAGE Society: A Community for Mature Students

Do you consider yourself to be an “adult learner”, “lifelong learner” or “mature student”?  Do you have some life’s experience before coming to Western?  Regardless of how you were admitted to Western—mature, college, or university transfer student—if you identify with being a “mature student”, you are welcome to join SAGE, our Community for “Mature” Students.

Our mission is to provide an academic and social community for adult learners.  The Student Success Centre organizes sessions of interest such as financial aid, exam preparation, and career planning, and we hold regular social events.

Join the hundreds of students who belong to the SAGE Society!  We add all newly admitted mature students to our mailing list, and we welcome any mature/adult learner to get involved.  Contact for more information.

New for 2016- We've created a SAGE Mentoring Program. Interested in being connected with an upper year Mature Student from your faculty? Email us at and we can match you with one of our SAGE mentors. The program allows you not only to connect with peers from your faculty but we run events and programming throughout the year to ease your transition.
