While touring colleges we spent a fair amount of time at McGill.

Very nice campus, surprisingly large and spread out for a city campus, with some amazing architecture.

The campus store is worth a visit, and they have a wonderful museum onsite – see TripAdvisor reviews under (Musee Redpath)

Please note – McGill is basically located on a large hill – so good walking shoes are a must!

We attended our daughter's graduation from McGill University this past May. It was my second time there, but the first for my wife and son. Unlike the sprawling, out-of-the-way University of British Columbia in our home town, McGill is like a tiny jewel in the heart of downtown Montreal. Strolling through the campus was like a trip back in time--you can almost imagine that Harry Potter's Hogwarts School is located there! There's such ambience in the buildings.

Hubby taught here for two days, a special course for scientists using a specialized technology and the experience was very good. Professional setting and people, the two day course went seamlessly, with wonderful students and an atmosphere very conducive to instruction. We're looking forward to teaching here again and working with fellow professionals to move science forward.

Feel free to explore this university of you have time. Beautiful and historical, yet right in the center of Montreal downtown.
