Remembering Izy

My beloved friend Isabella Guerrico, U3 Arts, passed away in a sudden accident on Thursday, Nov. 15. We will remember Izy, who was beloved by many in the McGill community, for her fiery and generous spirit. When I moved into Gardner three years ago, I had no idea what was in store for me.

Many of my friends answered with two or three countries and it seemed like a perfectly-appropriate reply. However, my answer became complicated when… Keep Reading

Tolerate thy neighbour

I don’t consider myself to be a selfish or ignorant person. I take some pride in keeping up to date with current events, because I think it’s important to know what’s going on around me. I’m even prouder of the fact that I know most everything there is to know about the people who belong… Keep Reading
