Located in Windsor, Ontario, Canada the University of Windsor is the southernmost university in all of Canada. (however, like pretty much all Canadian universities it still gets it's share of snow during the winter.)

The U of W is known for having one of the more internationally diverse student bodies in all of Canada, but the majority of it's students are still from the Windsor-Essex County and Chatam area (over 80% of students who go on to university from these areas will attend the U of W).

Historically, it hasn't scored well in Maclean's Magazine's annual University Rankings, but then again Maclean's Magazine is basically the Fox News of the North. In reality, the university offers a wide range of undergraduate and graduate degrees, including a well renown engineering program which has placed in the top 3 in each of the past three years in a competition against other engineering programs in Ontario.

Richard Peddie president and CEO of Maple Leafs sports and entertainment, graduated from the U of W with a degree in business and is still a proud supporter of the school and has be known to offer internships to Windsor MBA students.

Finally some of the benefits U of W students enjoy are a lively downtown district located close to the campus (5 minute bus ride), 3 pro sports teams located in downtown Detroit (Red Wings, Tigers and Lions) and the newly renovated and state of the art St. Dennis Center facility which played host to the 2008 Canadian Olympic Trials and is home to Lancer's Football, Basketball, Soccer, Volleyball and the CIS champion track and Field team.
Person1: So I heard you were thinking about the University of Windsor
Person2: Yeah, I am. But what about their rating in Maclean's?
Person1: Dude, it's Maclean's!
Person2: Good point...

A university where all kids drive Chrysler Cavalier F150 and sunfire's.

Where weed flows like water in river, and the desi jams have nothing but men and bad BO.

Everyone has pizza plus on speed dial, where drug dealers have email for faster delivery.

The leddy library is a social club where people go to study but end up re-grouping for weed session and some more ps3.

More time is spent on weed and ps3, then talking to family, friends, class, and more many mandatory important life items.

The business and Law programs are exceptionally well and compete with Ivey League schools.
Sartaj: Dude, Lets play FIFA and leave the University of Windsor

Vaibhav: shit, no more blunt wraps

A deliberately mismanaged university that consists of a cesspool of students who realize they made a mistake by coming here.
-Will accept anyone:
* who can spell their name in English.
* knows what day it is.
AKA a money university, last chance university.

Transfer students usually end up here for a good education and realize later they've made a big mistake.

Watch roger and me to get an idea of what Windsor is like.(currently suffering the same fate as most industrial cities like detroit)
person1:where do you study again?
person2:university of windsor

One of the worst universities in Canada, as it fails to make it on the top 100 list of Canadian Universities. Those who are dumb enough to get enrolled there and accept usually drop out and/or do nothing successful with their lives. Most of those who attend the University of Windsor are scared to move away from home and leave their parents, and/or are of the less fortunate as they cannot afford to study abroad. Those who attend the University of Windsor think they are the shit, but really will not get anywhere in life as the evil spirits of Windsor, Ontario have unfortunately sucked them in for the rest of eternity.
A professor from the University of Windsor came to my international boarding school to give a speech today and not one person showed up!


I heard the University of Windsor is the worst university in Canada!


Dude you go to the Univeristy of Windsor? How basic, you should transfer.
