Student Success Centre

Scholars' Publications

Scholars’ Publications represents a collaboration between Scholar’s Showcase magazine and the Scholars' online blog Purpology, both of which serve to educate others about student interests, experiences and travels by showcasing exceptional talents and abilities within the Scholars' Programs.

In addition, we create the bi-annual outreach leaflet, The Leaf, which provides incoming Scholars a glimpse into the Scholars community at Western.

Program Goal

With this online and print partnership, we hope to create a cohesive platform through which students can exhibit the significant and unique impact the Scholars programs have had on their university experience. We are excited to see our publications vision flourish and expand as we delve into this initiative.
