  • 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.

  • Where’s the Culture and Music?

    For you res kids who want to stick close to home, Concordia has its own galleries. The VAV is located in Concordia’s VA building and is student-run. There is also the FOFA Gallery in Concordia’s EV building. The two host a ton of student work, so it’s a great way to support your colleagues.

  • Where’s the Library?

    No matter what you’re studying, at some point in your student life, you will have to go to the library. It’s an inevitable step in university, for better and (often) for worse.

  • Where Are the Resources ?

  • Who’s Who at Con U ?

    Lex gill
    Csu President

    The Concordia Student Union’s President Lex Gill was the head of the Your Concordia slate in the 2011 CSU elections, one of the more contentious in student council history. Gill entered office on a platform of fighting tuition hikes, fiscal responsibility and some much-needed T&A (that’s transparency and accountability, you perverts). As a CSU councillor last year, she developed a bit of a reputation as a rabble-rouser—so much so, in fact, that the Mirror named her one of the top 10 loudest activists in Montreal this year. Gill’s job is to serve the interests of students, and it’s your job to make sure she does. (For you graduate students with issues, however, Gill can’t help you. You’ll need to go see Robert Sonin, the president of the Graduate Students’ Association.)
