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.

WEBSITE OF THE WEEK: Gossip looks pretty in pink

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.

JUMBO SHRIMP: Something blue

The big fashion trend this fall is not the skinny jean, nor is it the sweater-dress, peek-toe pumps or military coats. The hot accessory for autumn, as I was informed this past weekend, is the engagement ring. Ah, engagement rings. The world's smallest set of handcuffs, some might say.

FOOD: Tea’s company

Though it has only been a Western commodity for the past few centuries, tea has one of the longest and most illustrious histories of any beverage. Legend cites its discovery by Emperor Shennong of China around 2700 BCE, though early written record of the drink only stretches back to 300 CE or so.

STUDENT LIVING: How-To-Essay writing 101

Research: Research papers are, after all, founded on research, and research implies sources. A good rule of thumb is one book for every two pages and two journal articles for every three. So for a 10-page paper, you would want at least five books and seven articles, plus as many primary sources as you can get your hands on.

THE HYDIAN PERSPECTIVE: How to be a hipster

Going to University is a chance to re-invent yourself; you can finally shake off the stigmas of adolescent awkwardness and become the beautiful swan you were always meant to be. While many students adopt a new identity because they have experienced a great maturation between graduation day and the beginning of frosh, this metamorphosis is more frequently facilitated by the fact that they are now miles away from the people who knew them during their brace-faced "my little ponies" phase.
