March 31, 2012

A new video, “McGill State of Mind,” highlights the benefits of attending McGill, including the strong community and extracurricular activities, in order to counter negative portrayals of McGill over the last year. The video, which includes original lyrics to the Jay-Z song “New York State of Mind,” includes 300 students, staff and faculty, and 40 student groups. The goal of the video was to “portray this ‘community’ feeling that could be shared among active McGill members, alumni who wanted to relive fond memories, and prospective students interest[ed] in attending one of the best extracurricular universities in the world.” The YouTube video has been viewed more than 32,000 times.  McGill State of Mind Website  |  YouTube
