Hello and welcome to McGill!
Congratulations on starting your journey. While McGill is renowned for its academics and research, it can be extremely daunting to navigate, especially as a new student. That's why we made the McGill 101 Issue, to help ease your transition into university life and answer questions you have about McGill and Montreal.
What you'll find below is articles answering some of those questions. The topics range across our sections—News, Opinion, Student Living, Features, Science and Technology, Arts and Entertainment, and Sports—and will help you navigate everything from intramural sports to how to affordably acquire textbooks.
If you like what you see and would like to get involved as a writer, photographer, or illustrator with the Trib, we accept all students—no application or prior experience required. In the mean time, make sure to like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and Instagram, and check out our website. Our first print issue will be on stands across campus starting Sept. 7.
Good luck, The McGill Tribune
