OHM

About Us:
OHM Charity Fashion Show is an organization that has been led by the students of the University of Western Ontario for the past 18 years. This incredible organization combines elements of dance and fashion, truly allowing each student to shine. The main event during the year is a large performance showcasing dancers and models at our school, but the work that OHM does goes far beyond the stage. As a team, we run events and fundraisers throughout the year, donating all money raised from these events and from the show itself to the Canadian Cancer Society. To date, OHM has raised over $130,000 for the society, and we could not be more proud. Although this year may look different, we are as excited as ever to continue this tradition. We have an amazing team, and we are looking forward to you joining it in our efforts to support cancer research!

Western University Vegan Society

About Us:
The Western University Vegan Society is an inclusive community working towards a peaceful world, free from violence and discrimination towards all animals – human and non. We promote the abolition of animal exploitation through creative, nonviolent vegan education. WUVS seeks to empower others to becomes agents of positive social change and encourage them to live in accordance with their values. We can all agree that inflicting unnecessary suffering and death on animals is wrong, yet most of us still participate in this unnecessary harm by using animals. We welcome anyone interested in engaging in open-minded, positive and inclusive dialogue about the ethical, environmental, health, and other social justice issues associated with our use of nonhuman animals. Throughout the year we will be hosting a variety of educational and social events. These will include presentations by acclaimed activists and authors, workshops, film screenings, potlucks, dinner outings, sanctuary visits, and vegan outreach initiatives. We offer a supportive environment where everyone is welcome, especially those who are curious about veganism. We hope you will join us in building a more just, peaceful and nonviolent world.

The Duke of Edinburgh Club

About Us:
The Western Duke of Edinburgh’s Club was created to give UWO students an avenue to begin and complete their involvement with the Internationally recognized Duke of Edinburgh Award. The club facilitates and encourages students to grow their interests through individually oriented skill development, community service, physical fitness and expeditions/explorations. Within the purpose of the club is to form a social environment that brings together students with similar interests, to create an atmosphere of encouragement, experience sharing, and dedication. The club will facilitate networking between our club members and other local, national, and international organizations. Due to the unexpected changes caused by COVID-19, the club will now be running virtually through Zoom. We plan on changing our focus to helping individuals within the club set up a customized plan to best achieve their goals within this time. Our main priority remains the same, however, we will not be able to host any in-person activities for the time being. The award is achieved by students making a bimonthly commitment to take part in physical recreation, community volunteering, and personal skill development of their choice. The award is internationally recognized for developing individuals who are dedicated, interesting, and active within their communities. It leaves requirements open-ended for students to decide their activities based upon their interests, and it also allows students to complete the award at their own pace. The Western Duke of Edinburgh’s Club is meant for UWO students to become involved, build a strong campus community, and to develop their own personal interests through this unique opportunity.

Paper Art Club

About us:
Paper Art Club is the one and only paper-folding (origami) group at Western University. We are very friendly and open to all undergraduate Western students. Paper Art Club holds weekly meetings where we create a variety of items such as paper flowers, animals, and seasonal crafts using any kind of paper, including professional origami paper, newspaper, or recyclable items. At the meetings, club members can share their ideas and share different skills with each other in an informal environment, to help relieve some stress. Our biggest event is our Annual Valentine’s Day Rose Sale, where we sell beautiful paper roses to support a charity. We also hold an Origami Exhibition at the end of the year, where we showcase some of the crafts created by group members. There are also volunteer opportunities open throughout the year, including teaching origami to children at the London Public Library. This year, due to COVID-19, our club will be running online. Weekly meetings will be held through Zoom instead of in-person, and there will be a remote alternative (making resource kits) instead of the typical library volunteer sessions for teaching origami. If you’ve got any questions about the club, feel free to reach out to us through our socials or by email. Also, feel free to drop by our club’s week Zoom call to chat with one of our executives, and check out our slides (Powerpoint below, or here at https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1Y83rEfJC3tCJhLdy-8_Lz5zvsXiCQZe1t2tmfpSDpHw/edit?usp=sharing).
