Ever wonder about who gets an honorary degree? The above link will connect you to a list of the people who have received honorary degrees from UWO since 1981. I did a google search on some of the names to see why they made the list.
I'm sure everyone knows who Paris Hilton is but how many of UWO's best of the best list are recognized outside their field. So if you're going through a midlife crisis and wondering if anyone knows your name, well redirect your mind. Maybe it's not how many people know your name but rather whether or not you're work is respected by those qualified to evaluate it and by those who have benefited from your skills.
