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. Encompassing over 4,000 students, including graduates and part-timers, the McGill International Student Network is one of McGill's most valued student organizations.

Is your face worthy of Facebook?

Think you're on Facebook to socialize? Think again. With over 20,000 new members registering daily for the infamous friendship network, Facebook is known, first and foremost, as an efficient tool for the communicating masses. While eager stalkers interact via notes, poking and wall writing, they are also tuning into something much larger and essentially much vainer: themselves.

STUDENT LIVING: Recipe-Ah, zee Franche cuisine

Even the most particular person always has at least one thing to marvel at when they think of the French: food. French food is one of the oldest, proudest and most regulated gastronomical traditions in the world. This is not to say that Indian, Thai, Spanish or any of the other traditions are lacking in some way, but they were not institutionalized as early as the French.

STUDENT LIVING: How to…Talk shit in French

A few years past, one's command of the French language had to be fairly deft to survive in Quebec for very long. McGill students, for the first weeks after arriving in Montreal, would need to assiduously commit dozens of key phrases to memory in order to obtain everyday household items, from milk to light bulbs.

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. No, I'm not a hermit, or even anti-social. I'm a Montrealer. One of those cool but elusive people you meet in one of your classes then never seem to encounter again.

STUDENT LIVING: Vive le Quebec, Vie la Poutine

For stick-thin health conscious fellows, poutine is venom on a plate. However, to every other "normal" person in Canada, it is simply a mountain of fries topped with cheese curds and gravy. Poutine may be a Quebec delicacy and extremely delicious, but unfortunately, the fries-cheese-gravy aspect of poutine makes it an artery-clogging snack.

NIGHTLIFE: Place your best and lose your shirts

In an utterly charming, sultry voice, Mademoiselle Oui Oui Encore explains that burlesque "is not about sex; it is about seduction, and most of all, confidence in yourself."  Blue Light Burlesque is the only troupe of its kind in Quebec, and this Thursday night over a dozen performers will be stripping down and heating up La Tulipe in a show entitled "Place Your Bets! Hot Las Vegas Nights.

FOOD: Ile de where…?

Île de la Reunion! If you have any clue as to the whereabouts of this obscure island, then you are probably a Geography major because it seems only a handful of people in this city have even heard of it. J. Pierre Charpentier, the manager of Le Piton de Fournaise, decided that he was sick of the Montreal cold and went abroad and spent six years on this minute southern African island located in the Indian ocean off the east coast of Madagascar.

Cashing in on ‘awkward’ moments

Generally speaking, the average student goes to the bathroom with one or two specific goals in mind; one of which is not to select a new social action group to join. Or is it? Washroom stalls across campus are becoming increasingly more cluttered with advertisements ranging from club meetings to Vonage telephone service.
