Bienvenue à Montréal!

The writers of the Orientation Issue on Montreal [Vol. 31 Iss. 4, Orientation Special Insert] skipped the most important thing about this city: its specific culture in North America.

The writers of the Orientation Issue on Montreal [Vol. 31 Iss. 4, Orientation Special Insert] skipped the most important thing about this city: its specific culture in North America.

As a Montreal-born Concordia student, I personally see to the fact that my fellow students are well received. So, here’s a star-up of the intournables (aka things that cannot be missed) of the enjoyments of life à la Montréalaise:

• Discover a podcast of the wonderful and colourful history of St. Laurent Boulevard: www.atsa.qc.ca/pages/frags2en.asp

• Eat Quebec classics revisited by a fancy chef at La Cantine.

• For francophone-music and a burst-your-bubble club night experience: Sunday nights at Café Campus.

• Winter (we will be there soon) sledding on Mont Royal Park. You can find a sled in a dollar store or in a hardware store.

Most of all, I hope that all of you, my new neighbours, have a chance to enjoy and understand the unique essence of our off-campus community.
