You planted the seeds, now see how they’ve grown!

During the summer we were proud to launch McGill’s first crowdfunding platform, Seeds of Change, to graduating students like yourself. The response we received to this initiative was incredible: during a two month test period of the website, nearly 400 donors gave close to $18,000 to nine different projects! Thank you so much for your support. But that was just a warm up… the site is going live to a much wider audience in mid-September, so stay tuned!

Giving students a voice… The Importance of Class Action Programs

Whilst a student at The University of York, England, where I was one of only 9,400 undergraduates, the chances of seeing a familiar face whether out shopping or on a night out in one of the city’s many pubs, was fairly high.
