You've made it to UBC.
Now you have to figure
out what to do while
you're here. We've put
together a 64-page book
to help answer some
ofthe questions you'll
inevitably have. Our info
is based on the collective
experience of seasoned
Ubyssey editors, students
and professors. We don't
have all the answers, but
we can definitely tell you
a thing or two that's not in
the official UBC handouts.
So, take a lookthrough.
The 97 Things to Do is a
great place to start if you
want some inspiration on
fun things to do during
first week. If you want
more serious advice, we've
got that too. Pretty soon,
you'll be on to second
yearand laughing at how
clueless the incoming first-
years are.

the alma
mater society
The Alma Mater Society
(AMS) is the student
society at UBC. They're
governed by executives
who are elected each
year and manage a
lot of what goes on
around UBC. Make sure
to take advantage of
this democratic process
and vote during the
upcoming March 2016
elections!
In addition to
helping you voice your
opinions and being the
representative ofthe
student body, they also
run various services
around the campus (see
campus resources on
page 11).

study tips
"Toto, I've a feeling we're
not in high school any
more."
No, you aren't. You're
at UBC. You're at one
ofthe world's best
universities which means
you're pretty smart; it also
means you are going to
have to start working.
High school classes were
probably a breeze for
you. Well guess what, the
party is over. That isn't to
say university won't be
the best four (or five or
six) years of your life, but
if you want to graduate,
expect to work.
Let's get some things
straight: you will fail a
midterm, you will pull an
all-nighter, you will have a
class where the average is
60, you will wonder why
it's 3:00 a.m. and you still
have two essays to write.
And in the end, April will
roll around and you will
have passed all (or most)
of your classes and move
onto second year. Then
you'll do it all over again.
Although you've
already heard this a billion
times before, developing
good study habits is
seriously important.
Reviewing what you've
learned before or after
class can make a big
difference, in comparison
to the ever so popular
method of cramming.
Balancing work and play
is the key to a successful
first year.

THE FINAL COUNTDOWN
During finals weekyou will do many
questionable things and neglect your
most basic needs. However, there are
things you can do to avoid this (likely)
hellish state:
Make decent notes, this will save you
eons of time in the long run
Have a calender, good time
management is the solution to
everything
Learn how to say no, not every
gathering needs to be attended
Don't sleep in class
Don't stay up all night playing video
games
Find the right method, reading over
the entire textbook doesn't work for
everyone
Use a website blocker to avoid
procrastination. If you can just
work questions off a textbook or
workbook, then leave the laptop
at home. Don't eat your nasty
ass fucking tuna sandwich in the
library, we can all smell it.
— Maegan Poblaaon
First, learn how to be disciplined.
Forthe first time in your life, you
will be largely responsible foryour
own learning. Your teachers will
not prod or check upon you like
they might have done in high
school, so it will be up to you to
develop the ability to regulate
and organize your time. Second,
don't stress out too much about
grades.The most important
thing is foryou to get into the
mindset where what you want
to get most out of any class you
take is the opportunity to learn
how to learn. More precisely, each
class should be seen as a training
ground for developing the habit of
being curious, open-minded, and
receptive to ideas more than of
focusing on your grade.
— Dr, Karl Aquino

clubs
Clubs? Clubs,you ask?
Well, we have clubs. So
many clubs in fact that
the AMS website openly
admits they can't keep
up.
Currently the AMS
recognizes over 300
student-run clubs.There
are clubs like the Varsity
Outdoor Club and the
Chinese Varsity Club
(aka the party club)
to drinking clubs like
Ski and Board and the
Brewing Club to clubs
that actually do stuff
with their time like
Women in Science or the
Accounting Club.
Seriously, we could
fill this entire guide with
just a list of UBC clubs.
If you can't find a club
to join you need to stop
drinking alone in your
room or studying in the
library and go outside.
There are always flyers
and events going on and
clubs are always looking
for volunteers; it's never
too late to get involved.
It sounds cliche, but
clubs are a great way to
meet friends and have
fun. You get to hangout
with people who like
the same things as you
and do stuff you like. So
go join a bunch and see
what happens. University
is about more than
exams and bars.
Plus, you can always
join us at The Ubyssey.
For a full list go clubs go to:
www..ams.ubc.ca/clubs/big—list—of—clubs
Brewing Club
It's exactly what it sounds like: they
make beer. And good beer, too.They
have won awards and competitions with
their brews. Join the club, learn to brew
and become a brewmaster. Also, you
know, drink beer.
www.brubc.ca
Bike Co—Op/Bike Kitchen
The Bike Co-Op is a great resource as
well as a campus club. The Bike Kitchen
is a community bike shop where you
can work on your bike, get help with
your bike and even buy used bikes.They
also rent bikes, run workshops and trips.
Ever see purple and yellow bikes around
campus? Head into the kitchen and find
out how you can ride them for free.

14 Getting Involved -Clubs Varsity Outdoor Club
The Varsity Outdoor Club is THE outdoor
club to be part of. From first-timers to
world-class climbers, skiers, hikers and
paddlers, the VOC is the place to be.
Every weekend the club runs several
trips around BC; teaching, exploring and
enjoying the outdoors. Free gear rental
and instruction for members.
www.ubc-voc.com
Chinese Varsity Club
You definitely don't have to be Chinese
to join the CVC. While their name is
somewhat of a mystery, the CVC bills
themselves as a club with "diverse
selection of social events, bringing
students together in making the most out
of their university experience." Read: we
throw some legendary parties.
www.ubccvc.com
Ski and Board
Party. Party. Party. Party. Ski. Party.
Party. Ski. One of UBC's biggest clubs.
Ski and Board throws parties, ski and
board between parties and organize the
always exciting Undie Run. For those
who want less partying and more skiing,
the club also has North America's best
freeride team.
www.ubcskiandboard.com
Aqua Society
This club is a must checkout for divers and
non-divers.They run a shop in the SUB.
They train new and experienced divers.
They run weekly dives and long trips over
school breaks. It may be expensive but a
membership gives you massive bang for
your buck as it includes free air fills, half-
priced rentals and so much more.

Fraternities and
sororities
UBC is home to
the biggest Greek
organization in
Canada.This means
that if you walk past
Thunderbird Stadium,
you start to see an awful
lot of people wearing
weird letters on every
item of their clothing. As
an ex-sorority girl who
is not blonde, blue-eyed
and a svelte size 0,1 can
tell you that the Greek
systems portrayed in
classics such as Legally
Blonde and House
Bunny are only accurate
some of the time.
You will inevitably
end up on the inside of a
frat house, and it will be
filled with disgustingly
smelly, dirty and sweaty
guys wearing too much
cologne and hair gel. If
you join a sorority, you
will inevitably become
Facebook friends with
girls who hashtag their
Starbucks lattes with
#fallingforfall and if
you hear a screech of
jealousy when you're
sitting in front of them
in class it's probably
because their friend got
lavaliered before them.
But then, you'll probably
meet those people
outside of the Greek
system, too.
The Greek system
is also a fantastic way
to meet smart, driven,
capable, motivated
people who will help
you fly and catch you
when you fall. My best
advice is, don't make
a judgement based
purely on the pop
culture stereotypes -
Greek life is so much
more than that.

Varsity sports at UBC may
not be the most popular
activity around, but that
doesn't mean they aren't
worth checking out.
29 teams, hundreds of
athletes and one mascot:
theThunderbird. UBC
athletes are some ofthe
best in Canada and the
world. UBC swimming
just doesn't lose and
consistently sends
athletes to the Olympics.
UBC baseball just sent
two pitchers to the MLB.
Women's Softball is the
only Canadian team in
the NAIA.
So yeah, varsity is a
big deal. Plus, tickets are
dirt cheap, attendance is
growing every year and
this year promises to be
a great one: athletically
and atmospherically. So
go enjoy some beers,
screaming crowds and
world-class athletics.

YOUR BUCK
We weren't kidding
about the tickets being
dirt cheap.
All UBC students can
get single game tickets
for $2.
To top that off, for $20

SKI AND BOARD'S
UNDIERUN
Leave it to the Ski and Board club to
get naked and run around campus, and
get away with it. Around exam time
in term two, strip down, bare it all and
run around campus in a naked, stress
(and beer?) induced stupor screaming
bloody murder just because you can.
POLAR PLUNGE
Lastyearthe party planning group on campus,The
Calendar, held their annual polar plunge at Wreck
Beach. Almost 400 people attended, stripping off
books, bags, stress and, for some, clothes, on the
to dive into the ice cold waterand celebrate.This
year's event aims to be bigger and better than last
year's. Plus it's free, so get naked and go swimming.
You'll only regret it a for little.
STORM THE WALL
Storm is the quintessential UBC event
if you want to consider yourself a
true Thunderbird. With a team or
alone, run, bike, swim and then storm
the 12-foot wall. In recent years the
week-long event has grown to include
fairs, concerts, beer gardens and a Pit
after-party.
DAY OF THE LONGBOAT
Enjoy the last rays of sunshine in
this early October UBC REC event.
Grab a group of friends (or just
random people from the dining
hall) and getyour bathing suits
on. This is the biggest voyageur
canoe race in the world so that's
pretty cool #humblebrag. Just
don't fall in!

Family
For most UBC students,
university is the first time
they are living on their
own. And it's really hard.
Whetheryou are living in
a dorm, in an apartment
or even at home, learning
how to deal (and not deal)
with your family is an
important an useful skill.
First of a 11, say thank
you. Your family is
probably part of the
reason you made it to
university and how you
are paying for it. And if
they aren't, good foryou,
welcome to adulthood.
Secondly, keep in
touch. Parents may be
annoying, overbearing
and always pissed at you
but keep in mind they
made itto adulthood;
they know their shit. So
listen to them. Ask for their
advice (and listen to it,
occasionally), say hi when
you are feeling homesick
or lonely (which you will).
And finally, give
yourself some space.
Learning isn'tall about
reading textbooks. Go out,
make mistakes and then

them and not make the

the Vancouver area
So you've just got to Vancouver from Calgary
Toronto, Halifax, Ouagadougou. Vancouver
isn't the easiest place to get to know - as
cities go, it's pretty spread out, and has
huge swaths of residential areas that frankly
aren't as interesting as some ofthe city's
other hidden gems. (Thankyou, stupidly
high housing prices). Lucky for you, our
editors have been here for a while. This is the
breakdown of Vancouver areas:
YALETOWN
Yuppies. So many yuppies. If you're a
hip late 20s - early 30s in Vancouver
then this is probably where you live
and work. Expensive restaurants,
boutique clothing shops and easy
access to the Seawall is what makes
this part of the city so popular.
KITSILANO
Kits is where
theVancouvery
20-somethings hide. 4th
Avenue is the heart of
this area; close to Alma
is where the old hippies
who you only ever really
see at the Folk Fest live,
head farther east and
you get into Lululemon
territory. Juice bars,
weirdly expensive shoe
shops, organic food
markets and vegan
coffee shops abound in
this part of the city.
26 Vancouver -The Vancouver Area POINTGREYIDUNBAR
As soon as you leave UBC you're
in Point Grey; go south of 16th
and welcome to Dunbar.These
are mostly residential areas -
apparently they used to be cool,
grungy middle- and working-class
areas, but then the Vancouver
housing market happened and
now tell someone you're from
Point Grey/Dunbar and they ask
how that yacht's working out for
you. The best things about these
areas are their proximity to UBC,
and the fact that they're both
bursting with sushi joints just a
hop-skip-and-a-jump away from
your dorm room.
The Vancouver Area -Vancouver  27 Vancouver
COMMERCIAL
DRIVE
Hipster haven in
Vancouver. The East Side
has a strong cultural
identity in Vancouver
and Commercial Drive is
the centre of this. There
are a lot of record shops,
Italian-style cafes, and
bars for late-night drinks.
28 Vancouver -The Vancouver Area ►
DOWNTOWN
Daytime: shopping. Robson, Granville and Pacific Centre mall are the two
best spots for these. Nighttime: typical clubby clubs. Loud music, guys with
too much hair gel and cologne, girls wearing heels that look like a form of
torture from the Middle Ages.
PHOTO COU RTESY GOTOVAN/FLICKR
GASTOWN
This is where Vancouver starts to get interesting. Get here quick while it's
still just the right level of grungy before the gentrification takes over -
there are a plethora of awesome coffee shops, donut joints, brunch pads,
bookshops, street art murals. It's also a great place for going out at night.

BEACHES BE PEACHY
Wreck Beach is conveniently close to
campus and, when it's not forest fire
season, excellent for sunset viewing
and bonfires. Kits Beach and Second
Beach are great spots for days when
you don't want to get off your beach
towel or for watching the fireworks,
Jericho is the best spot for windsurfing
or sailing. The best beaches are the
ones you find by exploring - don't
hesitate to take that almost-hidden
staircase, you might just find your new
favourite getaway spot.
HIKING
Vancouver is a hiker's paradise. There are
plenty of great trails within a quick public
transit ride from campus. Drive a little further
out of town and you get to experience the
majesty of some of the West Coast's most
iconic trails. There are too many to list here,
but a quick google search should be enough
to give you the adventure bug.
SCIENCE WORLD
Even if you are the most hardcore of
all Arts kids. Science World (orTelus
World of Science as some non-locals
like to call it) is freaking AWESOME.
They always have interesting and
interactive exhibits on, and even just
the regular shows make for a fantastic
rainy day if you feel like becoming a
child again and not having a tsunami
of midterms.

EXPLORE HISTORY
Another great must-visit
destination in Vancouver,
also conveniently on campus,
is the MOA (Museum of
Anthropology) located at NW
Marine Drive (check our map
on page 12).
They're usually open from
10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and the
entrance fee is free for UBC
students.

transit
Despite the amount of hate piled upon TransLink, we've
been told that our city boasts an excellent transit system
(a score of 78 on walkscore.com). But it's not only the
busses and SkyTrains that make up a good transit system,
people are a part of it too, and preferably people who
know the unspoken transit rules:
• Check both ways before crossing the street in the
bus loop. An extremely busy area with many busses
driving around plus a student looking at their phone
is a very bad combination.
• Know where you're standing. Being in front ofthe
exit, leaning on the poles or standing on the small
rotating platform in the middle ofthe bus are all
poor choices.
• Respect personal space. Similarto the rules that
apply when choosing a urinal, don't sit beside
someone on the bus unless it's inevitable. If you
do find yourself in this predicament, then try to
maintain a gap between you and them. I know, we
humans are strange and awkward creatures.
• Try to make room if possible. For students, this
usually involves taking off our textbook-filled
backpacks and placing them on the floor.
• Don't block the window seat. Helping a fellow
commuter avoid the wrath of gravity is much
appreciated.

TRANSIT TIP
Every bus stop has a 5 digit number on the bus sign. If you
text that 5 digit number to 333-33 it will tell you when the
next bus will arrive.
DON'T FALL ASLEEP
Sleeping is tempting, but it will
literally suck the energy out
of your already lifeless body. If
you can avoid it, don't sleep.
FIND SOMETHING TO DO
Whether it be reading a book, studying (if
possible) or playing Candy Crush, find something
that will energize and help you stay awake during
your long commute.
LIVE ON CAMPUS
Sometimes living on campus, or
near campus, is the only option left
(highly recommended for those who
commute for 2+ hours each way).
FIX YOUR TIMETABLE
If you value your sanity, do not
schedule your timetable so that
you commute during peak hours
(around 7 a.m. - 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.
-6 p.m.).

alcoholic mixes and favourites
You're probably going to drink a lot of nasty alcoholic'delicacies'during your 4+ years at

classy, trashy and everything in between.
But remember, if drinking isn't your thing, don't worry about it. You can still make
friends and hang out with your floor mates/classmates, and your liver will definitely

perfect storm to facilitate
your introduction to them:
you'll be surrounded
by young people, have
access to parties almost
constantly, and you might
be getting your first real
taste of independence.
We're certainly not going
to tell you not to do them,
but it's always a good idea
to be aware of any risks
involved.
A great place to start
is erowid.org, a non-profit
site that hasn't updated its
look since approximately
1994, but is bursting at
the seams with everything
you need to know about
any recreational drug,
laid out in a nonbiased,
digestible way.
But since you're
already here, why don't
we tell you about the
four most common drugs
you might encounter at
university?
MARIJUANA
Weed is a depressant that can induce giddiness, relaxation
and an overall pleasant feeling. It's not technically addictive,
but like a really good cheesecake shop that opened next
door, it can definitely be habit-forming.
0
ADDERALL
Did a doctor prescribe it to you? If the answer's no, it's probably a
good idea to stay away from this one. Yes, it will make you focus.
Your room will be so god damned clean by the time it wears
off. But the downsides (paranoia, heart palpitations, insomnia,
scary potential for addiction) almost definitely outweigh the
slightly higher grade you might get on that exam.
MDMA
"Whoa, my face is soft." MDMA will make you feel a deep emotional
connection and intense feelings of happiness toward your fellow
human beings. Testing kits are available cheaply online, and it's a
really good idea to use them - ecstasy pills sold on the street can
contain little to no MDMA at all. You mightwanttodoitagain
really soon. Don't. Your body needs time to recharge.
COCAINE
Coke is a stimulant, usually snorted, that hits quickly and leaves oh
so soon afterward. The risk, of course, is that your heart will crap
out. Cocaine is highly addictive, and though withdrawal usually
isn't fatal, it can give you a neat variety of symptoms like suicidal
thoughts, loss of sex drive, insomnia or excessive sleep,
dizziness, shaking and depression.

44 On Campus - Fashion essential apps
III
EVERNOTE
This is one essential app if you take notes in class. You can type notes,
add photos, record audio and attach files with this app, which can also
send you reminders - essential for organization.
DROPBOX
Dropbox is useful for when you have to print a paper in an emergency,
access work on a friend's laptop or share presentations and files
between group members. It's essential to backup files between
devices. Although other alternatives are available, Dropbox is
generally a reliable tool.
GOOGLE DRIVE
On a similar note to Dropbox, Google Drive gives you 15 GB of free
storage for notes and things - easily enough for a semester's worth of
papers and research.
MINT
Mint is a website and app to help you keep track of your spending and
earning throughout the semester. For many students, this is the first
time you'll be totally independent with your money, and it's no fun
blowing all your money week one and having to struggle through the
rest of the month.
FITNESS
The freshman 15 is a very real thing, but it's so easy to avoid. By
downloading a simple meal tracking app, or one to monitor your
exercises, you can halt this inevitable decline into "dad-bod." Apps such
as the 7 Minute Workout, MyFitnessPal and Strava will keepyou on
track, or at least aware, of your healthy eating and exercise habits (or
lack thereof.)
REFME
The most tedious and time consuming part of papers is often the
referencing page. It's boring to do, and easy to screw up. With RefMe,
you can often take a scan ofthe book or journal's barcode and it will
do all the formatting for you.

50 On Campus - 5 Dorm Must-haves finding the
perfect

One of the toughest
things to maneuver now
that you've moved out
from home is finding that
one person you truly love
and care for. That one
person who understands
you better than you
understand yourself. You
know,your roommate.
Here are a few helpful
tips for finding that one
true someone:
FRIENDS
Living with friends is like riding a bike without holding the
handlebars. It's incredibly freeing and fun but there is always th
potential for complete disaster. Wear a helmet.
FRIENDS OF FRIENDS
Friends of friends are usually a safe bet when trying to find someone to
live with. As long as your friend is reliable enough to give you a good
recommendation, you're almost guaranteed to end up with people
who you will get along with. Put up a posting on Facebookand get your
friends to share it!
CRAIGSLIST
Asking for roommates on Craigslist, or following up with someone
who is asking for roommates on Craigslist, is probably the least work
of any of these options. It's like playing roommate roulette. You
never know what you're going to get! Good luck and happy hunting.

avoiding the
Freshman 15
"The Freshman 15": a
phrase oft-heard by those
entering university for
the first time. Its validity
varies wildly depending
on who you ask, but the
fact remains that adjusting
to a more independent
lifestyle can lead some
students to slack off on
maintaining their health.
It can be difficult to
maintain a healthy diet
when you're forced to
eat in a cafeteria next to
where you live. The first
year residence cafeterias
can be overwhelming to
those who have never
made a plan regarding
their own food intake,
and speaking from
personal experience, it's
easy to pick and choose
whatyou want to eat,
not necessarily whatyou
should. Leave the bacon
off your burger, or better
yet, try a salad with grilled
chicken.
Some days you'll
be tempted to blow
your budget on ice
cream sandwiches and
poutine. That's totally
fine on rare occasions, but
make sure to eat normal
meals with protein, grains
and veggies most of the
time.
Use your common
sense, but do some
research beforehand
on what constitutes a
healthy meal — consult
the Canada Food Guide
for some guidance (and
some nostalgia from third
grade when you did that
project).
Also make sure to get
regular exercise and all
that jazz. Not sure where
to start?
£<b «D
Freshman 15 can sometimes be pretty
tough toward off, but try to find time
whenever you can for a quick workout,
even if it's just 15 minutes. Aim to
choose the healthy options most ofthe
time, but remember to treat yourself
too!

The BirdCoop costs just $60/year
($7.50/month), and holds all the
equipment a student could need,
making it the most popular choice for
UBC students looking to get fit and
stay that way, including two squat
racks, free weights, benches, treadmills,
bikes, machines and a climbing cave.
However, its popularity also means it's
really busy, so try to go in the morning
or before closing to avoid the midday
and 5:00 rushes as students get out of
classes.
The Aquatic Centre is completely free
and home to a basic weight room with
a small cardio section consisting of a
treadmill, a rowing machine and a few
stationary bikes. It's surrounded by
UBC's pool, steam room and sauna for
a convenient pre- or post-workout dip,
which are also free for students.
Residence Gyms are small but
functional (and free), and located on
the main floor of first year buildings.
They usually consist of a treadmill
or two, a few stationary bikes, and a
couple basic strength or bodyweight
machines. If that's all you need, they're
perfect.
Gold's Gym, in the University Village,
boasts the finest equipment around,
and is definitely the most elite gym
near UBC, including two squat racks,
a selection of flat benches, incline
benches, a wide selection of free
weights, machines, treadmills and a
studio that holds regular classes that
are included in your membership.
Prices vary, but expect to pay $40-$60/
month on top of initial membership
fees (and no, you can't check the prices
online, you have to talk to a salesman).
I exercise on campus by
going to the BirdCoop, a
semester pass is only $30!
The only problem is that
it's pretty packed most of
the time, so you'll have
to time it well. If you're
aiming to do cardio, a run
on campus is always a
gorgeous option, adding
in Wreck Beach stairs is a
great idea too!

Considering that you've
just arrived at UBC,
you probably had to
gather some letters of
recommendation in the
last little while. You will
be facing this taskagain
and again in the next few
years but the good news
is, we've got some tips!
First of all, ease into
it. Start with the easy
stuff; write out your
name, position, and how
long you (the candidate)
have been known by the
recommender. Maintain
that simplicity, it should
be easy to understand
why you're providing the
info that you are. Move
on to relevant experience,
and even if you have
experience that you don't
think is super relevant, try
to think about what skills
may overlap. Applying
for an architecture
internship? They might
be impressed to hear
about your experience in
theatre, since creativity
is needed in both
places. Include a brief
outline of outstanding
personal qualities, like
team player, organized,
attentive, etcetera. Don't
go overboard with these;
anyone can write out a
list of qualities that they
think they have, but if
you pick two or three
specific traits it shows
you've actually put some
thought into it.
Wrap it upon a more
personal note: explain
from the specific person's
view why they would be
a good candidate. money advice

Rockefeller. Except you're

and since when is cheese

mom?
It's time to learn a nifty
little trick called budgeting.
It's a big concept but you'll
get it, with a little practice.
Lets start with some basics:
Locate your biggest
expenditures. Do you
buy coffee every day?
That innocent $2 on
coffee a day totals
$730 a year.
Seek alternatives. Buy
a second hand coffee
maker and some fresh
grounds. Splurge on a
nice mug with all your
well-earned savings.
Buy textbooks used.
Many of your books
are also available
in the library for
temporary borrowing
(or online for
download, legally of
course).
Use the discounted
student services
available around
campus. There's
plenty of budget
friendly ways to save
if you lookaround.

• Daiso, this Japanese department store has two
floors of everything you can think of (utensils,
travel gear, school supplies and more). Oh, and
every single thing is $2 each.
• Online, Amazon, Craigslist and Thriftbooks.com
are great places to find cheap (or sometimes
free) stuff like furniture, textbooks and what not.
• Vancouver Flea Market, it'll take some time
but there are many hidden gems waiting to be
found.
• Costco, best place for buying items in bulk. You
were going to eat 20Twix bars anyways so why
not buy them all now for cheap?
• No Frills, another place with great deals on
groceries (in case you didn't want 10 years'
worth of mayo from Costco).
• Groupon, the go-to website for hefty discounts
on fancy dinners and adventurous outings.
