Welcome to a new school year!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org, 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!
