  • Where’s the Ride?

    As a student in Montreal, even if you live downtown, you will probably be a commuter as well. Whether it’s a class at Loyola, there’s a party in the Plateau or you just want an adventure around the island, the city has a wide range of options to choose from that will get you where you need to go.

  • ConU WTF 101

    There are a lot of things about Concordia’s past you would never find in the glossy, university-issued orientation pamphlet. This school has a long, active and damn crazy record of headline-making (for better or for worse) and inspiring mobilization and conversation from coast to coast.

  • Where’s the Food?

    International Cuisine/Late Night Lifesavers/ Fill Your Fridge

  • Where’s the Party?

    One of the best things about Montreal’s nightlife is that- on any given day of the week, no matter what neighbourhood you’re in, you’re bound to find something to do to get out of town. What we list here is just the tip of the iceberg in terms of what’s available, but to start you off, here are The Link’s picks of some of the coolest places around.

  • Where’s the Tech?

    The Link dishes up some quick solves for your digital needs.

  • Where Are the Clubs?

    Associations and Clubs at Concordia represent a hugely important part of student life—and there are so many to choose to match your interests.

  • Where’s the Student Space?

    You might assume, as the university is an institution for educating and enlightening students, that all the space that students occupy on campus would (technically) be considered “student space.” But this is simply not so, my friends. Not so.

  • Where’s the Green Space?

    If you want to get some green downtown, your best bet is to leave. That’s right, get out of Centre Ville. Climb the mountain, take the shuttle to the green pastures of Loyola, or—fuck it—go visit McGill.

    Or, if going to McGill would hurt your pride and Loyola seems too far away, here are some slices of nature in an otherwise concrete jungle:

  • Where Are the Sports?

    Are you in the mood for some bone-crushing, hard-hitting action? Perhaps you would like to watch some slam-dunking, or some goal scoring? Or maybe painting yourself maroon and gold is just your thing. (Fall colours, brah.)

  • Where Are the Freebies?

    Having been a student on a tight budget for the past four years, I’ve had to be pretty resourceful in this city to be able to eat, make art and have fun.
