Former Coordinating Editor After serving as The Ubyssey's news editor for two years, Sam was at the helm of the paper for its 100th year of publication. During her time at the paper she drank an (absolutely unhealthy) amount of coffee in order to fuel her obsession with writing, and took a special interest in reporting on matters of sexual assault and other crimes, public opinion, and university governance. She also found the time to go to classes for her political science degree.


Amidst talks of implementation, Policy 131 is also up for its first review, which UBC committed to conduct one year after the policy came into effect and then every three years following.

“It really is a failure that we are now a year into this policy, and I don’t think that we’re better off from when we passed the policy.” So what went wrong?

Statistics show alarmingly high rates of sexual misconduct within the Greek community, and women are speaking out about a culture of silencing and internal resolutions. So why doesn’t UBC see the Greeks as its responsibility?

UBC is working to establish a separate trust, which will ideally let the university invest hugely in their own student housing without the caps of provincial borrowing. After working for years to come up with alternative funding solutions without real success, this may finally allow the university to fund an accelerated construction of student residences.
