Zac Sultan –
Your First Year Council gets that exams are stressful. We’ve been thinking: what can we, the FYC, do for you to help alleviate some of that tension and soothe your stressed-out minds?
Well, free massages courtesy of IKRA Spa sounds like a good start! (You didn’t hear it from us, but word on the street is that there’ll be free drinks and food while you wait, too.) On Monday, come and join us for some free, professional massages, all on us, to start off your finals season. Good luck to all of you, and we hope to see you then!
When? 12:00pm – 4:00pm Monday, December 7, 2015

We are looking for dedicated students for our Academic Portfolio and Event Portfolio. We are also looking for a Graphic Designer and a Translator. These portfolios offer great work experience and insight into the mechanics of McGill University.
If you want to be a part of a council that represents the entire first year community at McGill, advocate for issues ranging from academics to social issues affecting first years, and plan awesome events, then this is for you!
The Academic/Advocacy Portfolio:
The Academic/Advocacy portfolio is a great place for thoughtful students with suggestions about how to improve the way McGill and its admin operates. This committee will also be responsible for advocating for social and political issues directly affecting first years.
This year, the academic portfolio will be working on getting the first year voice out there. Through polls and surveys the committee will assess the wants, needs and views of the entire first year class in order to address and represent them accordingly. If you truly want to help make a difference as a first year on campus, then this committee is for you!
The Event Portfolio:
Have a great idea for an event YOU want to see happen? If you want to make the most out of your first year, then this is the place for you. The Events Portfolio will be a small team of committed member who brainstorm, plan, create and promote events for all first year students at McGill (many of which will be held on an inter-faculty basis and/or in collaboration with other students groups at McGill).
