Principal Heather Munroe-Blum gets a warm reception from a cool guy at the SSMU Snow Air Pub on lower campus last week. Euphoric Side Effects was the band, although the principal seemed pretty happy, too. Munroe-Blum has just started her term as principal, and is looking forward to meeting many of McGill's students.

Sauvé's dynamic dozen

Scholars from around the world will be embarking on a new residential program at McGill thanks to the Jeanne Sauvé Foundation. The innovative program is a first for Canada.

Law student David Nachfolger spent his summer in Geneva. No backpacking around Europe -- he was working for the International Organization for Migration, on a program designed to compensate victims of the Nazis. This will make you reconsider sleeping it off: torpor isn't all it's cracked up to be, at least for chipmunks. Nuts!

On campus
Student journalists invade Montreal, Paule Samson-Finidori opens a new book on art, a seminar series on Gender Power and Social Change kicks off and the Mac lumberjacks and jills have an axe to grind (and throw).
