It's also notable to mention that Shatner graduated from Montréal's McGill University, in 1952. McGill has a kick-ass academic program and is generally considered on par with American Ivy League schools. As well, the Student's Society of McGill University building is named the William Shatner building, in which there's a beautiful William Shatner Ballroom on the 3rd floor. Also known as "the University Centre," the Shatner Building is home to the many clubs, services, and publications of the SSMU. Gert's bar and nightclub (One of the best in Montréal, I might add), is located in the basement, and is a great place to hang out, have a beer, and watch Star Trek reruns.
