It's almost September and chances are if you're a student, you've already started getting, or at least thought about getting, all of your back-to-school supplies together. As fun as getting neon post-its and colour coordinated binders is, buying all of those little necessities really starts to add up, not to mention if you need to buy a new laptop or tablet. School's already pricey enough as it is - you should't have to drain you saving account on all those extra expenses.\nLuckily for us Montreal students, there's one way to save yourself some cash this year. Evo is currently running their Gear Up For School contest to get you ready for class with all the newest, top-end gear for free. By entering, you have the chance to win the ultimate back-to-school kit, including a Herschel Backpack, an Apple Mackbook Air and a pair of Beats headphones. I don't know about you but if I was just given all of those things, I might actually be excited about waking up early for class.\nEntrance to the contest is completely free - you just need a valid student ID card. The winner will be announced on September 15 at 6pm on the Evo Facebook page, so make sure you head over there to see if you'll be going home with some sweet new swag.\nhttps://youtu.be/NuK5DYM5UXA\nWith classes starting soon, school supplies aren't the only thing you need to think about. Where you're living for the year is also a top priority. Evo is Montreal's premiere student residence, and they're all about making your student experience as smooth and memorable as possible. Their buildings are conveniently located near Montreal's campuses and are filled with beautiful move-in ready apartments. The leases are extremely flexible and include heating, hot water, electricity, cable TV, air conditioning and 24/7 security.\nWhen it comes to amenities Evo knows how to do it right with a pool, gym, game room, lounge, library, laundry room and theatre. They also have connections with tons of local brands and events, and will help you fill your free time with non-stop entertainment.\nLiving in Montreal is one thing, but meeting people in the city can seem like a daunting task, especially if you're from out of town. Luckily Evo will help you out with that too. They match you with a roommate, if you aren't into living alone, and they set up different activities and events for you to get to know your fellow residents and explore Montreal.\nCheck out Evo’s Facebook page and website to get more info and set up a visit.
