This beautiful photographic record of The University of Western Ontario is now available at a special price that makes it a perfect keepsake for students and a wonderful gift for those who have visited Western. Dated (2004) but hardly out-of-date, these photos "celebrate our campus as both a place of great beauty and a setting for reflection, scholarship, and community among our students, faculty and staff." — (former President, Paul Davenport)
Kevin Newman of Global Television adds in the book's forward: "The enduring affection, for me, is the architecture." The coffee-table book captures the memories of beauty and vitality as only a well-done photographic record can, and reminds one and all of the variety of pursuits taking place on campus.

"The combination of definitions, descriptions, real life cases and media make it a very accessible, comprehensive resource. Having such a resource, which deals with the challenges faced by our International Graduate Students, will help ensure success in their lives in and outside of the classroom."
— Andy Leger PhD, Educational Developer, Centre for Teaching and Learning, Queens University
"Study abroad offers students many opportunities for exhilarating and (occasionally) frustrating moments. CSGIS meaningfully helps international students begin to understand and successfully negotiate cultural transitions they might face in graduate school. Varied, informative, and thankfully free of pedantry, Ms. LeGros' useful resource aids international scholars seeking to survive and thrive in graduate education.
—Kevin M. Johnston, Director, Michigan State University, Teaching Assistant Programs"
"In a brilliant and easy-to-read piece, the author puts together invaluable information that will assist any international graduate students to understand and thrive in the Canadian academia. The wealth of information in the book will assist any international graduate student to understand and overcome the cultural differences that often cause rifts. It is a must read for anyone who hope to have a balanced and productive relationship in Canadian academia."
—Bolaji Adeniji, PhD student in the department of Biology, The University of Western Ontario, London – originally from Nigeria, West Africa.
