Viewpoint: How I learned the importance of sleep hygiene

Don't let the students posting Snapchat stories of how late they've been cramming at McLennan fool you—there's nothing glamorous about insomnia.

Viewpoint: Me and my cultural fatigue

Every year, thousands of students move to Montreal to begin their journey at McGill. Although the university’s multinational student body is a blessing for international students, moving to a new place often comes with a cost that goes unnoticed by locals.

This past summer, I spent six weeks studying French language and literature at Middlebury Language Schools, an intensive program at Middlebury College in Vermont.

The Viewpoint: Restaurant O.NOIR

Tucked away near the corner of Boulevard Saint-Laurent and Rue Prince Arthur Est, amid a row of trendy looking restaurants and shops, at first glance O.Noir appears ordinary. Charming wood-topped tables and minimalist place settings mark a quaint front patio, and a warm soft glow frames the pathway for the hostess to seat her tables;… Keep Reading

The Viewpoint: Café Melbourne

I’ll be the first to admit that I sometimes embody the ‘annoying-girl-who-won’t-stop-talking-about-her-exchange.’ My semester in Melbourne definitely left some of my peers and family members feeling tired of my frequent references to my time abroad, and I find myself comparing all aspects of life back home to my time in Australia.
