Wel­come to a new school year!

The McGill Daily - - Welcome -

And we’re back! Some­how sum­mer is al­ready over, it’s dis­tress­ingly chilly, and a brand new crop of first-year stu­dents is try­ing to puzzle out the dif­fer­ence be­tween the Mccon­nell and the Mac­don­ald build­ings be­fore their first classes. It’s a hec­tic time - we might even say a dis­ori­ent­ing one - but fear not! The Daily is here to guide you through the tri­als and tribu­la­tions of yet an­other year at Mcgill.

In this very spe­cial is­sue, you’ll find ev­ery­thing from how to make your voice heard in cam­pus pol­i­tics, to how to learn some French be­yond “bon­jour-hi,” to where to go for an amaz­ing night on the town. We’ve also in­cluded some re­caps of im­por­tant sto­ries you might have missed over the sum­mer, both lo­cally and in­ter­na­tion­ally.

Be­fore you dive in, al­low us to in­tro­duce our­selves: we’re The Daily’s edi­to­rial board, a group of stu­dents so com­mit­ted to pro­vid­ing you with rad al­ter­na­tive jour­nal­ism that we rou­tinely spend ill-ad­vised amounts of time in our win­dow­less base­ment of­fice (con­ve­niently lo­cated across from Gerts in the SSMU build­ing). We have an anti-op­pres­sive man­date, mean­ing we cover sto­ries the main­stream me­dia of­ten ig­nores, and we try to pro­vide a plat­form for marginal­ized voices. If this sounds like some­thing you might like to get in­volved in, shoot us an email at co­or­di­nat­ing@mcgill­daily.com, or at one of the sec­tion emails on page five. No previous ex­pe­ri­ence is nec­es­sary, so whether you love mak­ing art, you’re a com­mit­ted pol­i­tics junkie, or you have opin­ions you’re burn­ing to share with the world, we’d love to hear from you!
