  • Very strong university. The philosophy department offers a great selection of classes with outstanding professors. The campus is beautiful, especially in the summer time. A really photogenic place! Most of the buildings are nice, with good restaurants and clubs throughout the campus. There’s a social aspect of McGill that is as compelling as the education.
