Campus Cutie: Curtis Lai

If you searched up the word “cutie” in a dictionary, you would find a picture of Curtis, the star of this week’s Campus Cutie section.  Curtis is in his second year here at McGill and has been super involved on campus since he first stepped foot in Montreal. He is a star intramural ice hockey player, a member of the AUS Auditing Committee, and the 2013-2014 Food Rep for New Residence Hall. Curtis is one of the friendliest people you will ever meet, and it would be abnormal to see him on campus without a smile. This is one guy you don’t want to miss out on meeting in your time at McGill.
