Join the club Former McMaster students are starting their own business, the Exclusive Club Card. One of their founders, Gabriel Gadala, shares his entrepreneurial tips and how you can benefit from their business

What inspired you to make the Exclusive Club Card? I came here as an international student. I didn’t know anything about the city and for the first year, Hamilton was unknown territory for me.

[REVIEW] Big Sean – Dark Sky Paradise

Big Sean has always been a joke. From the infectious but ridiculously stupid “Dance (A$$),” to the hilarious ass shake/assquake/ass-state/ass-tray bit on “Mercy,” we’ve never stopped laughing at Big Sean. Recently, his messy break up with Glee star Naya Rivera, and current relationship with emerging diva Ariana Grande have further overshadowed his music. In 2014, the problem was that no one believed Sean had the chops to be a true...
