Mahalo McGill!

Back in June, we wrapped up our annual OMG contest, which featured a $1,500 travel voucher from House of Travel as the grand prize. Out of the 2,500 entries, a big congrats goes out to our lucky winner Sarah Nouraeyan, BEd’14! We’re looking forward to hearing updates on her trip in the coming months. Speaking of updates, the 2013 OMG contest winner, Chrysantheme Senou, used her winnings to travel to Hawaii, and has kept an incredible blog and photo diary of her experience.

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.

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!

Work without pay? The concept may not seem great – at first. But more and more youth are recognizing volunteering as an invaluable experience in their lives. It’s a double win: Your community benefits from your help and you benefit from the practice and involvement.

From the comedic MCs to the enthusiastic performances enjoyed by the audience, all of the elements came together perfectly to create a wonderful evening of entertainment and charity.

SeedStories: Lasting memories of a presidential campaign

When I first got an offer to join President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign, I was both excited and anxious. Although I was a fanatical viewer of The West Wing and had made a number of class announcements in Leacock 132 during my student politician days, I didn’t know what to expect. My mind shifted through the possibilities. Would I be writing speeches? Would I be answering questions about the opponent’s latest gaffe in an MSNBC interview? Maybe I could help clean the Lincoln Bedroom.
