Ever sat hungry in a dead quiet lecture because you didn’t have enough time to get food? You’re desperately trying to internally prevent your stomach from growling because you know that your row will hear it and immediately throw you some shade.
Biking on campus has got to be addressed. More specifically, biking and skateboarding should be banned — Scooters can stay because bless their pure little hearts.
Going into science was never a question for UBC alum Jakob Manning — both of his parents are science teachers. Manning, who graduated from UBC in 2015, now dedicates his time to Geering Up UBC Engineering & Science, a non-profit organization that strives to promote STEM to youth.

To keep you from getting stuck in a long-term relationship you can’t get out of, I have made a list of some potential red flags that may be a sign that you should to drop a course before it’s too late.
