"It's Not Really Goodbye, After All" πŸ₯Ί - CH Newsletter #66

As part of joining our private student residence, 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 family,
Welcome back to the CH Show!!! πŸ“Ί - This is the weekly update to keep you abreast of what’s good in Montreal, the city we love ❀️, as well as updates from your beloved student residence community 🏑 (and another benefit is this keeps parents back home jealous at all times & updated enough not to blow up your phones lolβ€οΈπŸ™ ).
As we welcome the first week of May and officially bid farewell to this school semester, we would like to take this opportunity to thank all you for choosing Chelsea House as your home away from home 🏑.

It has been a pleasure having all of you with us, and we hope your stay has been enjoyable and fulfilling ❀️ We hope to see you again someday, somewhere in the 🌍

To lighten up the mood, this week, we're sharing with you a glimpse of the happenings at the end of the semester party, some last minute activities to try for those who are still in the city, as well as a very important reminder regarding our move-out procedures.

Okay, let's get right into it CFam! πŸ’ͺ🏻
