|Day-long "discovering Montreal" field trip - Université du Québec à Montréal|
Since summer 2008, the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) has offered students of the Explore program outings on the town that reveal the other side of Montreal, far from the traditional touristic offerings of the city. Forget about the Olympic Stadium or Saint Joseph Oratory; be ready to delve into the lifestyles of Montrealers’ Montreal, through meeting and interacting with residents of various neighbourhoods.

I’m nervous, but acquiring French will be invaluable to my grad work, my experiences as a Canadian, and my personal education. Who knows? Post-Explore, maybe I can celebrate my next vacation in France through the ability to finally order a sandwich.
