Commentary | Young alums getting bad vibes

While students have come and gone through the Roddick Gates over the years, one thing remains the same: the McGill Administration continues to sabotage the student community. As an alumnus with very fond memories of my time at McGill, especially in the Arch Café, I want to give back to McGill. But how can we alumni give money to an administration that does not respect the very aspects of student life that make us want to give the money in the first place? Sure, Arch Café isn’t something the administration can put on the cover of the alumni magazine like a new building or Rhodes scholars, but the act of closing the Arch Café with little communication with the student body has a serious detrimental impact on relations with young alumni.
