Co-op system for students

Students could leave McGill with work experience in their field, money to repay any debts, professional contacts, and the ability to apply the knowledge gained from an academic setting in the real world! Also, this would allow businesses and community groups the opportunity to discuss and coordinate internships with McGill and encourage more students to learn French!

A place to buy, sell and repair bikes

I don't have a bike but I want a bike so much. I don't have time to go through all the ads and contact people to get this bike!

 

I think there should be a place on campus to let people sell their bikes, buy used bikes, repair them, etc.

 

I also think this will let more people use a bike!
