tangerine mgill clubs nightAt the start of a new school year, a new wave of young, excited students enter university. They are looking to pursue life goals, discover their passions, learn about the world, and get involved with student groups.

This left many students scratching their heads. Isn’t Activities Night for student groups? What is a giant bank doing here? But this shouldn’t really be that surprising; in fact, corporatization is par for the course at McGill.
