This violence has been normalized by UBC for decades. It seems that nearly every year, recurring instances of sexual assault and harassment emerge from our university.
I’ve recently found somebody who is willing to deal with my insanity all the time — voluntarily (I have a boyfriend)! So, now that I have field experience with showing him around campus, I knew I had to list some verified PDA-hotspots for you love birds to nest in too.
During the 2022 portion of my term as president of The Ubyssey’s Board of Directors, the Board has undertaken and completed several projects. Here are five things we accomplished in 2022:
The Senate meets monthly to discuss and vote on UBC academic matters. But, Senate can often be hard to understand for the average student and the agenda docket can be super long and dull to read. Here’s what to expect at the January 18 Senate meeting.
Students, faculty and staff can complete the anonymous survey online. The deadline for survey responses is February 23.
Nominations for the annual AMS elections open tomorrow, January 10. Students can serve one-year terms on the AMS executive team, the Board of Governors (BoG), the Senate and the Student Legal Fund Society (SLFS). Any UBC student can nominate themselves for these positions.
The next on-campus VCH COVID-19 booster clinic will be held on November 14 and 15 from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the Life Sciences Centre. Flu shots can be booked at this location, with some walk-in availability.
Although it seems like the municipal government does not hold as much decision-making power as the provincial and federal levels, municipal government responsibilities include regulating law enforcement, community services and land-use planning.
If you didn’t get any emails saying your courses have changed, there’s no action required on your part.
While this may seem like an unnecessary added expense, one of the main goals of the ten-year plan is to reduce overcrowding and I'm pretty sure we can all spare a dime or two to avoid getting elbowed in the face every day while commuting on the 99.
Exam schedules are out. It's that fateful day when you discover whether you'll be able to fly home — or to somewhere hot and sunny — or if you'll be stuck studying in your small, dark room until the end of April.
Alternatively, you can call Translink and pay with your credit card over the phone after waiting on hold for ages. If this all sounds like way too much effort, then don't forget to request your monthly U Pass in advance.
It's that time of year again. Cry of joy or because you have an exam on the last possible day of exams. While The Ubyssey wishes everyone a happy exam schedule, maybe don't ruin your long weekend by checking your fate just yet.
On the AMS elections voting site, after you’ve voted for all of the candidates you’ll notice some Tumblr blogs and other websites, mainly dedicated to providing blog-style elections coverage. Most of them are legit.
