Over 60 soon-to-be McGill students from the Vancouver area came out for a Summer Send-Off Party organized by the McGill Alumni Association of Vancouver, the McGill Student Organization for Alumni Relations (SOAR) and the McGill Alumni Association. The event offered incoming students the chance to meet with graduates, current McGill students and Alumni Association officials to get the lowdown on everything from on-campus employment possibilities to McGill's athletics facilities.
