7 Things You’ll Hear Every Concordia Student Complain About

"The elevators are broken AGAIN!"
7 Things You’ll Hear Every Concordia Student Complain About

Photo Cred - Concordia

Okay, you can’t deny that Concordia is pretty fly. This school teaches artists and businessmen a like. They encourage you to broaden your mind and be open to trying new classes. The tuition is cheap and you have the opportunity to meet students and professors from across the globe. However, nothing is perfect, and though there is very little that we Concordians can complain about, we can always find something wrong.

1.The Line-Up At Peoples Potato

If you are in the dark on the Peoples Potato, then I honestly feel bad for you. It is an amazing program that offers Concordia students a FREE vegan lunch, five days a week! All you have to do is bring your own Tupperware. It is wonderful and delicious. The only problem is that people love it so much that the line can get very, very long.

2.The Elevators/Escalators In The H Building

This is a constant problem that will probably never be solved. For some reason there is always one elevator that is broken and about six escalators. It’s actually faster to take the stairs.

3. Le Gym Membership Fee

Seriously, no other school has to pay so much for their Gym membership! Ryerson and McGill enjoy gigantic gym facilities for next-to-nothing and we are stuck paying $70 per semester. Plus you have to pay even more for classes. Two words: Bull. Shit.

4. The Chartwells Food

Chartwells is the company that provides the food to Concordia cafeterias. If you are currently, or have ever been in Res then I feel your pain. Food will have flavor again. We promise.

5. How Good The JMSB Students Have It

I mean, have you seen their building? It's glorious. Since the JMSB program brings a lot of money in for the school, their facilities are notably swankier than the rest of Concordia. The arts students are just put on the back burner.Try being creative with no window to stare out of.

6. When You Have A Class At Loyola/FG

Loyola is a great campus, but it is in the middle of nowhere. No one wants to take that bus, it is cramped and awful and ALWAYS late. And the FauBourg building literally eats souls. It is underneath a Dollarama and has absolutely no windows. It is lit by blinding florescent lights so you can clearly see what a disgusting grey color the walls are.

7. The Constantly Switching Exam Dates

For some reason Concordia feels the need to post a tentative exam date on their website. You’ll get really excited because it says that your exams are done early, but then a few weeks later they will take away that dream a make your schedule all screwy. Why post a tentative exam date at all?
