    The People’s Potato & the Plastic Paradox

    I was heading to the seventh floor of the Hall Building last week, making for the familiar lunchtime queue of students. Like them, I was eagerly awaiting scoops of vegan goodness from everyone’s favourite anarcho-syndicalist communo-hippie soup kitchen, the People’s Potato.

    Hard to Deal

    I have a really embarrassing problem. There’s this girl I like, and every time I’m around her I get hard! I can’t help it and I’m worried she notices. It feels like high school all over again. Is there a medication I can take to stop this from happening?

    Students Speak Out Against Meal Plans

    When I found out that buying a meal plan was a requirement to live in residence at Concordia, I didn’t think much of it. I figured the food probably wouldn’t be the greatest, but hey, I didn’t have a choice. Recent reports have revealed that Chartwells—the sole company responsible for this school’s food services—lost Concordia $51,000 last year. With this deficit and the less-than-appetizing food in mind, I can’t help but wonder why I’m paying such a ridiculous amount to a company that’s losing my school money.

    It’s worth noting at the outset that the university turned a $15 million deficit into a projected $8.7 million surplus this year. That’s a $23.7 million increase, which is impressive by any measure.

    Roaches Run Rampant

    Next time you’re on the platform in Guy-Concordia Metro, look closely at the floor next to the walls. You can’t un-see it. A teeming mass of horrible little legs and antennae. Hundreds of cockroaches, some of them the size of beagles.
