School starting again means there are all kinds of stationery supply costs and outrageously expensive textbooks to wake you up from the irresponsibility of summer. But nothing drains a student’s resources quite as effectively as rent.

Lord knows this semester has been particularly long and brutal, but thankfully it's nearing its end...slowly, but surely. Those late nights of cramming, those early mornings survived solely through high dosages of caffeine, and mad empty wallets because you've probably blown it all paying for books and too many drinks will finally get some much needed respite this summer. All that hard work deserves some recompense, you know, to help get you over the final hump, and the best way to do that is to get out!

Well you're in luck, because evo, Montreal's premier student housing community, is throwing a massive party next Thursday, April 2nd at the Fairmount Theatre (iloveneon's new spot in the Mile End) and tickets are free for all students. DJ sets from JUAN MACLEAN, NANCY WHANG of LCD Soundsystem, SHAYDAKISS and HATCHMATIK will get the crowd grooving all night long, and there will be plenty of cheap drinks to keep you properly hydrated.

Combined, the two force students to live of their parents' cash (and never hear the end of it) or take out student loans, which makes post-grad life even more of a sticky financial situation. Student life would be heaven if tuition, rent, and other must-needs were free, and one contest is making that dream a reality.

Choosing what you study in university is a big decision, one you undoubtedly pondered and meditated on for hours, or just did whatever your mom and pops recommended. No matter how you got there, you're formed less by the decision itself and more by the time spent in the program. The things you learn, the people in your classes, and the vibe of the faculty influence you in ways you wouldn't realize, making you adopt certain characteristic you may not have had before.

Moving into an apartment or residence is quite the process, and if it's your first space outside of your family's home, you're probably going to experience some mild separation anxiety. Not because you're going to miss your parents or siblings or anything, you're just going to realize how your fully equipped your house was with every amenity you would ever need.
