The Show is on the Road! - CH Newsletter #35 September 16, 2022

As part of joining our private residential community, our members receive weekly updates about the community, upcoming events, developments in the student residence and any other relevant news. We've decided to post these updates on our website in order to let our visitors looking for student housing get an inside view of the Chelsea House student life!

Dear Chelsea House Members,

Welcome back to the CH SHOW 📺!!
 
Another beautiful week went by. As you can see, the temperature is starting to drop 😬 Pretty soon it’s gonna be Fall season 🍁 aka Pumpkin Spice Latte season ☕️ and then…winter is coming!
 
You’ve now officially, really, finally started school. The big mistake to avoid (from our experience 🙏) is to think you’re still in Frosh season & continue partying socializing as much. Before you know it, midterm exams / papers will be due (mid October comes real quick) - hit the books and keep the social life to weekends so you’ve got some juice 🧃 left during the week.

That being said, please be sure to read this week’s newsletter in its totality, as there’s also some bad important House updates you need to be aware of.
 
THE INSIDER'S REPORT: MONTREAL NEWS YOU NEED TO KNOW
 
  • Foodie Night Out @ TimeOut Market | Chelsea Foodies Unite! TimeOut Market is a one of the few food halls in Montreal (basically a food court but with only celebrity Montreal chefs serving their most popular dishes from their $$$ fancy restaurants) and is having their Tournée Gourmande where you can sample 4 dishes for only 36$+tax ! Highly recommended to try out - tickets will sell out fast, here’s the link!
    PS - Another foodhall in the city, Cathcart at PVM, was the prized project of a lacrosse/hockey/movie loving CH Community team member 😉

  • Jardin des Lumières @ Botanical Gardens | Probably the cutest and impressive way to see our famous Botanical Gardens. Every year the gardens are illuminated with an insane array of light shows and installations. Some say this is a must-do outing. Amazing date night / IG lovers / peaceful activity to do especially if you wanna unwind to hit the books the next day 😝

CHELSEA HOUSE COMMUNITY VIBES UPDATE
 
Here are some of the snippets from our first BIG HOUSE OUTING last Saturday!!
 
  • Lacrosse game of McGill vs. Trent U.
Game's outcome may not have been the outcome we had hoped for but everyone who attended had a blast cheering on our fellow Chelsea members Logan and Ryan!
 
PJ's feedback from the event was "A lot of fun. Almost lost my voice yelling HERE WE GO Logan/Ryan. Tough loss. I thought we had the comeback locked. Apparently we now hold the largest single concession order ever, lol. It was like 32 degrees and sunny. Pretty funny everyone was dying of heat. I hope they remember that feeling when we're living in an igloo for 4 months."

  • Members lounge needs to be cleaned up after use. This is a matter of respect. You cannot leave the lounge in a state like this. It’s disrespectful for the next members who want to use it and above all to our beloved housekeeping team who come in the morning to your wide array of leftover cans / bottles / glasses.
