Welcome to the Society of Graduate Students (SOGS), your graduate student advocacy organization and government at Western University. SOGS represents over 6000 graduate students annually across more than 60 departments on campus.


Western University is situated on the traditional territories of the Anishinaabeg, Haudenosaunee, Lunaapeewak and Attawandaron peoples, who have longstanding relationships to the land and region of southwestern Ontario and the City of London. The local First Nation communities of this area include Chippewas of the Thames First Nation, Oneida Nation of the Thames, and Munsee Delaware Nation. In the region, there are eleven First Nation communities and a growing Indigenous urban population. SOGS values the significant historical and contemporary contributions of local and regional First Nations and all of the Original peoples of Turtle Island.
