Student Claire Hughes

It's the end of a 500+ km road for Claire Hughes (foreground), who drove from Toronto with her family — (from left to right) sister Veronica, father Michael and mother Marianne MacLeod — to take up residence in Solin Hall. Hughes, who is about to begin her studies as a classical vocal performer, was one of more than 2,200 students who relocated to McGill residences during Move-In days on August 23 and 24.
