Current students at Concordia do outstanding academic work and get involved in community projects that improve our quality of life. See what they've been up to:
- Numerous media report that the Quebec university sport governing body, RSEQ, has rejected a request that a regular-season game between the Carabins and the Concordia Stingers that had been cancelled be re-scheduled. The game, which was to have been played October 5, was called on account of an outbreak of gastroenteritis among Carabins players and staff: Le Journal de Montréal, Le Journal de Québec, Radio-Canada.ca, TVA Sports (video and text), La Presse, Le Soleil, RDS.ca, MSN.com, Canada Football Chat, AMEQ en ligne (behind a paywall).
- Concordia Stingers football quarterback Trenton Miller's recent media appeal for action against head injuries in university football is referenced in the introduction to a transcription of a CBC 'Daybreak' interview with Université de Montréal Carabins head coach, Danny Maciocia.
- Undergraduate student Mickael De Souza (sociology and anthropology) writes about climate change he says is forcing migration from the Marshall Islands: New Security Beat.
