  • Dear Global Education Office,

    I loved studying abroad in Montreal because we also spent a week in Quebec City! We got to visit economusuems (a concept that originated in Canada) and also got to visit Montmorency Falls, North America’s tallest waterfall!

  • Bonjour, Hi from Montreal

    Dear Global Education Office:

    "If you're bored in Montreal, well, you're just a boring person."  This is what the tour guide told us on the second day, and he was right! Montreal plays host to festivals and events all summer long, so there is always something to…
