You do you boo boo.

Living alone is a big step in any student’s life, and as amazing as it is, it can also sometimes be stressful and lonely.  To keep things in perspective, we’ve taken this opportunity to list our favorite ways that living alone actually make you an increasingly complete person (#adulting):

10 MUST-DO MONTREAL ACTIVITIES YOUR FIRST WEEK HERE

Welcome to Montreal.

You first week in a new city is easily one of the most enchanting experiences- especially in Montreal. To ensure you get a taste of the city and what it’s like to be a Montrealer, we’ve created a list of 10 must-do activities your first week in the city:

 

Eat poutine ‘til you drop

Get lost on the STM – it’s inevitable

Go get your student card (and the photo that will haunt you for the next 4 years.)

Go out every night of the week – Sunday or Wednesday, there’s a place for any and every day.

Try doing as many Montreal tourist sites as possible– this way when your friends come visit you because you now live in the hottest city- you know exactly where to take them! Check out this list from MTL Blog for 101 fun ideas.

Sit in the front and have a friendly convo with your uber driver– only in mtl!

Drive a Bixi around the city (maybe this will help you avoid getting lost on the STM, again.)

Continue the party at one of Montreal’s after hours clubs, 3.am? No, no. no. I suggest checking out Stereo or Circus.

Try out a Montreal Shisha lounge, my personal suggestion being Arabesque Shisha Lounge (best food and shisha!).

And last, but certainly not least,  order takeout from Chef on Call- open daily until 3am, this will become your premier takeout spot for anytime. As they like to say “for when you’re out getting turnt or in getting learnt”.
