CHATTERBOX: ‘Lu and behold!’

Not many professors would start their 10 a.m. class with an Eminem song blaring over the sound system as their half-awake students stumble into the room. Then again, not many professors are like Catherine Lu, who currently teaches Western Political Thought on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays in the Adams auditorium The political science department has more than twice as many men as women professors.

SILHOUTETTE: Dude, where’s my passport?

When you live in a city where most of the homeless people can beg for money in three different languages, you know it's international. Out of the 19,000 undergraduates at McGill, 3,660 of them are from outside of Canada.

STUDENT LIVING: Perspective: Coming home to university

I have a dirty little secret: I've never been to a frosh event. I've also never attended a McGill sports game, joined a club or even been inside a university rez.

STUDENT LIVING: Pod People

You gotta hear this one song, it'll change your life, I swear, exclaims Natalie Portman's character Sam in the 2004 indie film Garden State. While she may have been exaggerating a bit, McGill students are taking her advice rather seriously.

STUDENT LIVING: Top ten fashion must-haves

1) The skinny jean - Although some of us may have boycotted the skinny jean for a while, it's back with a vengeance this season. Every other person on campus is donning a pair. Just keep in mind that they are tight, so the darker they are, the better. 2) The slouchy sweater - An alternative to the McGill sweatshirt, this soft knit is both comfortable and fashionable.

As we enter the first week of school feeling relaxed and refreshed after four months of summer, we tend to forget the horrors of midterms, papers and finals. Slowly but surely, though, the pressure of university starts to creep onto the shoulders of each and every one of us.
