Campus Visit Notes for McGill University
I enjoyed the underground mall, which will be a great place to go, especially during the winter. The culture was great, the people were much nicer than I expected, and I was able to function perfectly without knowing more than about ten words in french. The only questionable item in the city was the sheer amount of strip clubs, so it was kind of awkward walking around with my mom, but other than that, it was great. It's not so much the fact that there are strip clubs, just that there's about as many of them as there are restaurants it seems.
Overall, the city is just amazing. I also loved seeing the school as I walked through the front gates, nestled up at the bottom of Mont Royal. I would also enjoy venturing into the park as a break from the big city every once in a while.
