I too went to Marianopolis. My experience wasn't exactly as glowingly positive as CP's, although it's a great school with great teachers, I can say that much. If you want to stay in the private system and don't mind cliquey high-school on steroids students, then that might be an option to consider. But between Vanier and Dawson, Vanier seems like your best bet.
Load of crap IMO. If I'm gonna skip class it's not cuz i'm downtown. I just won't show up at all. Honestly, many people fear that. "Oh no, I'm dtown, i'll skip!" nah...if you dont wanna go, you just wont get out of bed at all.

In reality, student clubs can be a huge deal, but only if you have a personality and do more than classes and partying.

I did reach for the top, intramurals, and the student newspaper in cegep ( chaplain college) and newspaper, student government, editing a national undergraduate publication, and organizing a conference in university.

There are good clubs everywhere, but Dawson has more of them. They're a great chance to develop yourself and to make lifelong friends.
As good as clubs can be I find there's no problem waiting till university level. Honestly, you get to know people in your program better and can network better at that level with student organizations and all that. This shouldn't really be a huge factor at cegep level unless someone really wants it to be.
