Expect nothing more from UBC
than opportunities.
During your time here you will be
able to meet amazing people who
will have done things you've never
done and know about things
you've never heard of. You will be
able to learn from them and teach
them what you bring with you from
your past. You will be able to find
people who love the same
obscure music, shows or games
as you, and who will make what
were previously lonely interests
of your collaborative passions.
You will be able to study your
obsessions and bore your friends
with the details. You will be able
to make your worst mistakes and
your best decisions and sometimes it will surprise you which
ones are which.
Just don't expect that all of this will
happen. Because it won't if you
just wait around for it. UBC will give
you every opportunity to get what
you want from it, but nothing will
be given to you. Stay curious. Be
inquisitive, friendly and generous.
Stay open to change and to being
challenged. Leave your shitty
dorm room and force yourself into
experiences that will surprise you.
Take every opportunity, have fun
and go to at least a few of your
classes.
Samuel Du Bois is The Ubyssey's
Coordinating Editor for the
summer and hopes to
graduate sometime in the
next twenty years.

"What's Pass/Fail??"
Welcome to UBC! The first thing you'll need is some
BASIC ACADEMIC KNOWLEDGE
I mean, it is a school.
Credit/D/Fail
Want to explore interesting but potentially challenging electives? Fear not — try Credit/D/Fail.
UBC will give you a Cr on your transcript if your
grade is 55 per cent and above, a D for a grade
between 50-54.9 per cent and an F if you fail.
More importantly, a Cr or a D will still give you the
credits but won't be factored into your GPA. You
have until the add/drop deadline to register for
this option.
^
Withdrawing
You can withdraw from
any course with no strings
attached if you do so
before the add/drop deadline.
After this deadline, you will
receive a W notation on your
transcript. Having one or two
notations usually doesn't
mean much for grad school
admission, but having a pattern of W's or too many W's in
your transcript probably does.
Past the second add/drop
deadline, only students with
extenuating circumstances,
such as a loss in the family
or medical problems can be
.withdrawn at the discretion of
(advising, so keep that in mind.
Academic Probation &
Failed Standing
If your sessional average is between
55-50 per cent, you will be put on
academic probation. You can only take
up to 12 credits in either winter term and
11 credits in the summer.
If your sessional average is below 50
per cent, you will gain a failed standing.
Depending on your faculty, this will have
different consequences. You must withdraw from UBC if you continue to have a
failed standing for two sessions in a row.
It becomes awfully more complicated if
you have been on academic probation or
failed standing before. In this case, you
should check UBC's website and talk to
academic advisors to maintain a clear
path forward. Your AMS Student Services & How

Vice
—   How much is too much?
Vice will help you find balance with alcohol, drugs, and technology use and
become your support system whether you want to achieve abstinence or find
a balance.
Struggling with any first and second year courses?
AMS Tutoring will provide you with private or group tutoring.
Have you ever felt food insecure while studying at UBC?
Food Bank is hereto provide UBC students with food relief.
.#
Speakeasy —   Need someone to talk to?
Speakeasy provides confidential peer support for students facing a wide
variety of challenges.
Have you ever felt unsafe walking alone, across campus?
Safewalk is a transportation service that will accompany students, staff, and
visitors to safely travel from one location to another.

Library Fines, Parking Fines or Academic Conduct?
Come talk to advocacy to assist you in what you can do with your academic
and nonacademic conflict with the university.

Have a great idea, but dont know where to start?
Come see other entrepreneurialminds at work at Ehub.
Everything is free &
we are here to support YOU.
This is your AMS.
www.ams.ubc.ca/services First year is the year you
actually have to learn how to
study — you can't sail through
and get straight-A's like many
of us did in high school. Make
sure you try out different
ways of active studying,
whether it's re-writing your
notes, condensing them,
making flashcards or quizzing
yourself or a friend.
Different strategies work
better for different subjects,
so once you find your rhythm
go from there. Having trouble? Check-in with your TA,
your classmates or your prof
to see how they suggest you
prepare, and always, always,
do the practice problems!
You may just get lucky and
find one of them on the test.
U
Irving K. Barber
Learning Centre:
Home to the "Harry Potter
Room," 1KB is also where the
most public study spaces
are. While 1KB isn't the quietest place, there are designated   silent study  areas.
Koerner Library:
Koerner is a silent study
space so make sure you're
not taking your group study
sessions here. Check out the
Stacks to find individual
study spaces - and books if
you're interested in that kind
ofthing.
Woodward Library:
The biggest Science library
on campus also gives you a
less busy space to study.
ft
Forest Sciences Centre
If you can find a spot, this is
a gorgeous place to study.
The wooden decor and
greenery are sure to be a
good boost to your mood.
The Nest:
While we loved the Old
SUB (RIP), the Nest has a
ton more study space and
a bunch more light. You're
right by all of the food you
can want, which makes it
ideal for longer study
sessions.
The Asian Library:
One of the numerous
smaller libraries around
campus, the Asian Library
offers one of the calmest
places to study on campus. THE PANEL

"It is important to know yourself. How long will it
take you to complete this assignment? How well
do you understand the material for this quiz? Will
doing a single practice test suffice, or must you also
review all past assignments?"
- Maria Sottile
"Make small study groups with your classmates,
find an empty classroom (preferably with a whiteboard and a projector), and explain stuff you learnt
in class to each other."
- Rohit Chande Unless you are in a smaller program, professors are probably
not going to be anything like your high school teachers, if for
no other reason than that your lectures will be a lot larger. You
might never talk to your prof and only see your TA, but
professors are still a resource for you to use.
That being said, professors can make or break a class anc
there are a few ways to make sure you end up on the right
side of that equation. Here's our top three:
Research your professor beforehand: Although
most people would advise against making your course
decisions entirely based on Rate My Prof, the website can be
handy when you see the same thing come up over and over
again in the comments. Even if you have to take the class
either way, it is good to know in advance if a professor hates
it when students are late, or doesn't take assignments later
than the original deadline.
THE PANEL
SAYS
^ 17
Try to be a good student: There is nothing that professors or other students hate more than when you wander into
class 15 minutes late and block half a row of people while
trying to get a seat while holding the large latte that made
you late in the first place. Go to class, hand in your assignments on time and don't be the person whose phone goes
off every class.
Don't be afraid to talk: If you want your professor to
know who you are (and have any chance of getting a good
reference one day), don't be afraid to answer questions and
speak up in class. If you don't feel comfortable doing this or
if you are just really interested in the subject
material and wanted to talk more about it, you
can always visit office hours or try to talk to your professors
after class. Not only will you probably understand the
material better and be able to ask more in-depth questions,
but you could also discover you are more interested in the
subject than you previously thought.

THE
CRUCIBLE
Tickets available at theatrefilm.ubc.ca University is hard. We're all
smart, but suddenly being surrounded by other big fish in an
even bigger pond can be scary.
But you're not alone and as
much as it might seem otherwise, UBC doesn't want you to
fail. There is always someone
to answer to your questions.
office which can help with
questions about degree
requirements, graduation
planning and other academic
questions. While advising might be hit or miss, the
Degree Navigator on the
SSC is a great tool to plan
your    path    to    graduation.
After you declare your major
- and perhaps a minor - your
department(s) might also have
additional advising for you to
use. Chapman Learning Commons:
Located on the third floor of 1KB, the
Learning Commons offers tutoring,
writing support, study space, peer
academic coaching and more.
Centre for Writing and Scholarly
Communication:
The place to go for help with all things
writing, the CWSC offers drop-in writing
tutorials, online courses and help with a
range of writing projects such as essays,
resumes and scholarship applications.
Tandem Language Program:
This is a free program that can partner you
with a native speaker in the language you
would like to practice for 1.5 hours per
week in order to work on language and
conversation skills.
First Nations House of Learning:
The FNHL provides services for First
Nations students that include tutoring and
advising.
AMS Tutoring:
They provide free support for first and
second year courses in subjects like
biology, economics and physics. UBC's Co-operative Education program is a way to
get a start on your adult-
ing. Seven faculties offer
Co-op programs and the
goal is to get paid work
experience in your field of
study.
For many in Co-op, such as
those in Engineering,
it's as simple as getting placed in a firm and
enjoying having a head-
start on your resume. It is
almost always a good idea.
But for others, particularly those in Arts, it's
a bit more of a mixed bag.
Your experiences can be
very different depending
on where you're placed,
since the opportunities
are so varied.
THE PANEL SAYS:
While all work experience
is critical for a successful
future, the Co-op programs offer a particular
opportunity. You get
credit for your time in the
Co-op program, something that other job
opportunities don't offer.
But for every student that
has had an amazing placement, there are plenty who
say that finding relevent
job experience outside the
Co-op program, whether
on your own or through
other UBC programs like
WorkLeam or internships,
might be a better option.
So should you do Co-op?
Maybe. It's entirely up to
you and how your faculty's
Co-op program is run.
U
I think that work experience opportunities are a
great way to set yourself above other students,
especially in a faculty like Arts. That said, it does
take time and money, and might not be the best
fit for someone who can find work experience
elsewhere in clubs or part-time jobs.

Studying abroad doesn't
just have to be a year or
semester in Europe — it
could be a summer semester in Japan, a UBC
course taught for a few
weeks in South America
or even an international
internship or co-op.
Go Global, UBC's office
in charge of international study, holds office
hours three days a week
to help you plan when
and where you want to
go so that you can graduate on a timeline you're
comfortable with. Their
website lists all of the
international opportunities available, including
all of the universities
worldwide that you can
study at.
Make sure to start
planning early as
applications begin to
close in November for
programs the following
year. "Welcome to UBC! You're going to love it! Your undergraduate years will be the foundation for the rest of your life.
Make the most of everything UBC offers: take co-op if you
can, make connections and explore things beyond your
core program. You can't know where you will go in life, but
you can be sure that being well prepared will enable you to
succeed. Tuum Est."
- Deborah Buszard
"Consider going on exchange even if you already
have lots of experience
living or studying abroad.
I was raised in China and
was skeptical about what
I can gain from my research abroad summer
in Germany besides the
academics; however,
it turned out, the three
month exchange was the
best kind of experience."
- Daisy Zhong
"University is a time to experiment with everything, but also
know your limit, think about
potential consequences of
intoxication and don't do anything you don't feel comfortable doing... University will
be the best time of your life,
and it is always a big learning experience. Have fun,
and as always, Tuum Est."
- Daniel Lam
U
"If you're a wanderer, or stressed, frustrated, or bored,
take a break from late night studying and wander about
campus. Deviate from your normal route; search out
unknown buildings; feed your curiosity and question what's behind that wall or down that staircase
or beyond that landmark out the corner of your eye."

<( WIRELESSWHVE )> ATER SOCIETY
The Alma Mater Society (AMS) is
the body of student government
at UBC, which means that they
manage student clubs, run
businesses, provide services like
the Sexual Assault Support Centre
and Safewalk, lobby the university and government for students,
put on events like Block Party and
generally represent and apply
your interests on a broader stage.
Like any government, a lot of
people have gripes about the
AMS. Anytime you have a situation where a bunch of 20-some-
things are responsible for millions of
dollars of public money, there's
going to be controversy. And while
embezzlement and fraud are usually not major issues here, it's best
to at least have a cursory understanding of what the AMS does.
U Getting involved with clubs at UBC is one of the best ways to
meet cool people and pursue your passions. Lucky for you,
there are literally hundreds of clubs on campus to choose
from. Check out the list at www.ams.ubc.ca/clubs.
Missed a club on Imagine Day? Be sure to stop by the Nest
for Club Days in the third week of September and introduce
yourself. Can't find something you like? Find some friends and
request to make your own club.
While we're missing literally hundreds of clubs, here are
some to note:
Ski and Snowboard
Club
The   Ski   and   Board
Club is one of the biggest on campus. They
have a reputation of
hitting the slopes hard
and   partying   harder.
If you're interested in
snow sports at all, this
is the club to join.
Yoga Club
CiTR
UBC Yoga is the cheap
and welcoming way to
get into yoga — and let's
be real, can you even live
in   Vancouver   without
doing yoga? This club is
great for those students
who  get stressed   but
also don't want to stress
theirwallets.
We   may   prefer   the
feeling of paper on our
fingertips,   but  CiTR,
UBC's Student Radio
Station,   is  the  balm
to   our   ears.   Shows
range from classic talk
shows to classic rock,
and they want you to
join. Be a radio star.
Varsity Outdoor Club (VOC)
If you're interested in hiking, camping, climbing, mountaineering, kayaking,
mountain biking, skiing or canoeing, the VOC is there for you. Seriously.
They are the club for anything looking to get outside the city this year. CD

THE PANEL
SAYS:
'Alpha Phi Omega
is my favourite club,
hands down. Chartered in December
2015, it was Canada's first chapter of
Alpha Phi Omega,
and operates off
of the principles of
leadership, friendship and service.
Many of the world's
greatest academics,
politicians and leaders have been part
of this organization.
It is a great place
to find different
avenues of volunteering and service
to the Vancouver
community while
making friends from
UBC and around
the world that you
will cherish for a
lifetime."
- Daniel Lam
Alpha Phi Omega, a service
fraternity, along with the
Engineering fraternity and
sorority are considered
separate from the "Greek
Life" of UBC, but are still
important to campus.
There are ten fraternities and eight
sororities at UBC, with thousands of
students taking part in UBC's Greek life.
This makes up a small portion of the
overall population of the university, but it is
also the largest Greek system in Canada.
Joining Greek life is not for everyone.
Members pay dues and may spend a
significant amount of time on their
organization. However, it is a
rewarding experience for many who want
to find a smaller community on campus,
academic support, philanthropic involvement and networking opportunities.
Formal recruitment for sororities and
formal rush for fraternities happens in
September. There are also informal
recruitment periods in the Spring,
though not all chapters participate in
these. The best way to figure out if the
experience is right for you is to attend
recruitment events and talk to members. It is
completely normal for people to
change their minds and drop out of the
recruitment or rush process, so don't feel
pressured if you don't like it! There is also
a period of time before you are fully initiated into a sorority or fraternity where you
are a "new member" and can drop out,
hassle-free. SIGMA CHI RUSH S017

www.ubcsigs.com If you live on campus or spend all of your time here, like
most of us at The Ubyssey, it's important to know where
you can get the most bang for your buck.
U
Fast food in the Village:
McDonalds and A&W are
both open 24 hours for when
you're drunk or sad. There's
also a bevy of other mainstream places, including
Fresh Slice, Subway, Pita
Pit and Pizza Garden (go to
Mercante if you want something that looks good on Ins-
tagram — go to Pizza Garden
if you want a good-tasting
piece of pizza).
Domino's Pizza:
They deliver to UBC. Now that
we've told you that, expect
to break down about once
a month and order one to
your room. The upshot: you'll
instantly make a few friends.
Sprouts:
A classic. While their most well
known cafe is currently being
moved around - rumor has it
they'll be in the Old SUB Life
Building in January, but their
other cafe Seedlings is still
up and running so check out
their Facebook and website.
Agora Cafe:
A hidden gem in the Mac-
millan Building on the south
end of Main Mall. Simple,
no-nonsense sandwices,
soups and snacks and
ultra-cheap coffee. Bring your
own mug or container for a
small discount!
"The Basement":
In the University Village, next
to the McDonalds, an unassuming stairway leads down
to a depressing food court
with no cell reception. The
food is actually quite good
though, and has something
for basically every craving
- sushi, gyros, pho, you
name it.
Triple O Tuesdays:
If you must, you can get a regular hamburger for $3.33 at the
Triple O's next to Sauder every
Tuesday. It's absolutely not
worth it, but if you feel like lining
up out the door for a mediocre
meat and bun experience,
more power to you. ATS
But sometimes you've just got to feed the beast, even if it
means that you're shelling out a bit more cash. Campus
food isn't always cheap, but you're worth it. Treat yo self.
School of Fish:
Yes, a UBC food truck made
the list, for the sole (ha, get it)
reason that its baked salmon is
absolutely buckwild. It's nuts.
It shouldn't exist, it's so good.
For under $10 you can get a
chunk of salmon perfectly
cooked on a bed of micro-
greens and amazing risotto,
with a dollop of crab butter
on top. Holy shit, this dish is
good. Don't get the fish and
chips, they're mediocre. But
fuck, man, this salmon.
One More Sushi:
A reasonably priced and
damn good sushi joint. If
you're used to Vancouver sushi it's not going to blow your
mind, but it's definitely the
best on campus.
Bao Down:
Another new one! This place
stuffs a bunch of delicious
meat, veggies and sauces
into bao - those incredible,
light-but-doughy Chinese buns
you didn't know you loved til
you tried. It also proves our pet
theory that all fast food can be
improved with kimchi.
Chef Hung:
It's a bit of a walk out in Wesbrook Village, but it's worth
it. This place does a huge
variety of Chinese snacks built
for sharing. Try the beef rolls,
the pork dumplings and the
red bean cakes.
RainorShine:
It's new! It's shiny! It's the best
ice cream in Vancouver! (Fight
us, Earnest.) If this is your first
year at UBC, you're in luck,
because frozen treats have
not been this campus' forte for
some time now.
Pizza Garden:
Most people will tell you
Mercante is the best pizza
on campus. They're wrong.
Pizza Garden is a cheap,
OG shop in the village that
consistently delivers really good, thin crust, no-
nonsense pies. Mercante
looks beautiful and tastes like
a mix between wet cardboard
and nothing.
Uppercase (was Blue Chip):
Still the best cookie
on campus. From bonfires at Wreck Beach
to Wednesday Pit Nights,
there will always be something happening on campus
to draw you away from your
textbooks.
If you want to be outdoors,
UBC's Wreck Beach and Tower
Beach are an excellent
places to relax and hang out
with some friends. The Nitobe
Memorial Garden and UBC
Botanical   Garden   are   lush
green environments where
you can observe nature, and
think about things, while
the Rose Garden is a fabulous
place to get your new profile
picture.
When it rains, The Museum
of Anthropology, Pacific
Museum of Earth and the
Beaty Biodiversity Museum are great places to
learn and have interesting
dates for free.
There's no reason to wait.
Speak up for your future!
Get in touch with my MP office and find out about upcoming events,
services to students, and opportunities to intern or volunteer
W f joyce.murray.c1@parl.gc.ca   JOYCEMURRAY.CA The Morris and Helen Belkin
Art  Gallery and  the  Hatch
Gallery are great places to
ponder beauty or just admire
some art.
All of UBC's performance
centres and theatres, such
as the Chan Centre for
the Performing Arts, the
Dorothy Somerset Studio
Theatre, The Frederic Wood
Theatre and UBC's School
of Music auditoriums and
performance halls are
astounding places to
enjoy the arts. Performances
include dancing, acting and
musical recitals.
You may also catch musicians
and sports teams playing
in the Doug Mitchell
Thunderbird Sports Centre.
On the other hand, if you
enjoy taking part in physical
activities, the UBC Aquatic
Centre is a world class swimming pool. Other facilities include the multitude of gyms
and track fields on campus
that will help you keep fit. Pacific Spirit Park and the edges of campus are also great
locations for scenic jogs. And
finally, the University Golf
Club will make sure you keep
your swing in check.

THE PANEL
SAYS:
"Go to the Anthropology
Museum! It's free for students!
Freeeeee. Need I say more? I
waited too long to go, and really
regret that I didn't go more often
earlier on in my degree. It's also
a really great place to get some
peace and quiet away from the
hustle and bustle of campus in
the semester. Need to unwind
and not think too hard for a bit?
It's great for that. Thirsty for
some knowledge? They have
great tours. Man, now I want to
go again."
- Nina Payne
"While you are a student you
get free entry to a number of
places which are quite beautiful. I would highly recommend a
visit to Nitobe Gardens and the
Botanical Gardens."
- Rohit Chandel
"Pokemon Go!!!! Also biking
around Pacific Spirit Park,
and just catching some sun
on Wreck Beach (for those of
you brave enough). Also, pick
up basketball and tennis on
campus has been a staple of
my life."

Close to campus, beautiful and with plenty
of space to go around, Wreck is perfect for
watching the sunset, enjoying a bonfire and
taking completely legal substances.
Beware though! This is a nude beach and has
an unfortunately large group of old men who
make eye contact way too often.
SPANISH BANKS/JERICHO BEACH PAR'
This long stretch of shore running along West
Point and Kitsilano has great views of the mountains and the city. It can be a bit overcrowded
but watching a paddleboarder fall over is more
entertaining than television and well worth the
trip. Bring a bike if possible because the busses
area long way off.
Crowded but close to restaurants and transit, Kits
Beach gives you great views with a more urban feel.
The salt water pool is a fun time and The Local makes
a decent burger.
Take the 4 to Macdonald St. and then the 2 to get there
by bus, but biking is faster.
It's where 4:20 has been the last two years and
is close to downtown. Beyond that, it isn't really
worth the hour-long bus ride. 35
The UBC campus is big.
Vancouver is rainy. Add
60,000 people running
around at noon and it's
nothing less than a spectacle.
But there are a few things you
can do to make your time
here go a little smoother.
A rain jacket and boots:
With   the   introduction   of
■ mbraCity,    the    umbrella
Bharing program, your immediate need for an umbrella
of your own on campus has
disappeared. Make sure you
still have boots so you don't
end up with wet feet.
ESSENTIALS
Bike:
Not an essential but stupidly
helpful. When you have 10
minutes to get from one end
of campus to the other for
classes, a bike can save your
butt—just make sure you get a
good lock.
A good bag:
You need to carry your stuff
in something and I promise
you, no one cares if you use a
backpack. Get a good one or
your back will hate you.

campus, they are a great way to spend an evening with
friends and hang out with the die-hard sports fans on
campus. UBC Athletics has also been upping their game

t-shirt launcher or half-time fan activities at the games.

"UBC Thunderbirds Basketball! I've been following and
going to games most of my life. When the right teams
come to play, the atmosphere is super awesome and it's
just a great time to be with friends even if you have no
idea about basketball as a sport!"
- Varoon Mathur SPORTS
TIONAL
Hit up team sports at
UBC Rec Intramurals:
UBC Rec puts on intramural
leagues each term ranging
from soccer to dodgeball to
volleyball. Make a team with
your floor, your friends, your
classmates, or sign up as an
individual and dive right in to
meeting some new people! If
anything, it's a chance to get an
entertaining team jersey.
Hit the pool at
the Aquatic Centre:
The UBC Aquatic Centre just
reopened its doors and it's all
shiny and new. They have a
drop-inschedule,butalso offer
fitness classes including swim
fit, aqua zumba and a
springboard diving class.
Hit the yoga mat:
A stereotypical Vancouverite
pastime: yoga. There is a lot
of it around campus, from the
UBC Yoga Club to UBC
Recreations' Mind & Body
Program held in the Pon-
derosa Commons Studio
(unlimited yoga & pilates
passes now available) to The
Hot Box Yoga in Wesbrook
Village.

their own workout routines,
head to the gym in your
residence or visit the

while at UBC? Check out the
various clubs on campus for a

Life gets tough sometimes, but you're never alone.
These AMS-run resource groups are on-campus
resources  available  for  anyone  who  needs  them.
Sexual Assault Support
Centre (SASC):
They offer crisis and short-
term emotional support to
sexual assault survivors,
legal, medical, and campus-
related advocacy, and many
other educational resources
and services.

Offering educational and
social services that deal with
sexual and gender diversity at
UBC, Pride is available for all
UBC students,staff and faculty.
The Women's Centre:
They support all women-
identifying UBC students and
offer resources such as free
pregnancy tests and sanitary
products, safer sex products,
a library of feminist literature
and brochures about
resources. They also hold
events such as self defence
workshops, film screenings
and panel discussions
throughout the school year.
The Wellness Centre:
A space where you can talk to
a trained peer about mental
wellbeing, health, stress
management, and sleeping
better, among other things.

students who feel alienated
and disempowered due to
discrimination. They provide

Google Drive: No one likes group projects so make
them a bit less annoying by having everything
organized on Google Drive. More importantly, you
can see who has contributed what so the slackers can't
hide. It's also a great way to share large items without
having to go through the trouble of emailing them.
Transit App: Because parking is annoying and expensive, you will most likely have to take public transportation or car2go. The Transit App will show you the
approximate travel time for multiple options, the wait
time until the next arrival and even advice on the best
route to take, amongst other things.
Spotify: Music is great to to get you through all those
commutes and walks between class and Spotify is the
perfect solution. In particular, it is full of funky weekly updated music playlists that keep your music taste
fresh and your ears happy. Also make sure to explore
its word section — it's a hidden gem.
Mint: Since those Domino orders and daily Starbucks drinks can add up quickly, stay on top of your
expenses with Mint. You can also schedule your bill
payments so you won't stress during midterm or final
season. If you are an actual functional adult, you can
also keep track of your credit score here.

One page? Two? What do you include? Is your
high school average a good thing to write down?
Welcome to the slightly stressful joy of updating
— or making! —your resume.
Even if you don't want or
need a job while at UBC, it's
important to keep a good
resume on file. Scholarship
applications will sometimes ask for one and if you
ever apply for an internship
or job, you'll be thankful
you already have one in
the works.
UBC is a place with a lot
going on, so keep your
resume updated — at least
once a semester is best,
once a year is required. Bare
minimum, make sure you
have included your
university program of study
and your new address if
you have moved and have a
friend read it over to check
for spelling errors. Spelling
and grammatical errors are
the easiest way to guarantee
you won't get the job. Well,
that and having a five
page resume.
Worried you don't have
enough relevant experience
to fill one page? Visit your
faculty career coach or the
Centre for Student Involvement & Careers to speak
with an advisor. They will be
able to help you present your
experience in a way that's
relevant to your goals and
will you give advice on
a format that will get your
application noticed
Make sure your resume
reflects your career goals.
If you're applying for a
customer service job, play
up your conflict resolution
and communication skills.
If you're applying for a job
in the creative field, make
sure it looks good and it's
not just words on a page. A
cover letter is the place to
show your personality, but
that doesn't mean that your
resume has to be devoid
of character. ndWw to Find them
There are many different jobs on campus that are school-related,
volunteer based or extracurricular related. Take a look below
for four popular opportunities:
1. Check out the AMS employment page and UBC
Careers.
2. Keep an eye out for openings to be a note-taker for
your classes.
3. Browse your departments website for possible
internships
4. Pop into a restaurant or cafe and drop off your
resume and a smile.
Even if you don't need a job, getting part-time work looks great on
your resume, makes you some money and gives you the opportunity to meet a lot of new people you may not have gotten the chance
to otherwise.
THE PANEL
SAYS:
"Be willing to be flexible, yet open to any job offers. Most
jobs through UBC's WorkLearn offer reasonable hours for
the average student and part-time jobs off campus are
usually pretty accommodating to students."

"Check out Student Services for all sorts of on
campus opportunities and consider volunteering in a Prof's lab if you're looking for future

ubcopera.com University is a great time to expand your social circle and
find some people who are into the same kind of weird stuff
as you. A lot of people tend to make friends exclusively
within their residence halls, but you shouldn't let that limit you.
CLUBS TO JOIN
Getting involved with clubs at UBC is one of the best ways to meet
cool people and pursue your passions. There are hundreds of clubs on
campus, but the whole world doesn't live on campus. There are clubs
that aren't run by UBC that might interest you. Check out sports league,
quiz nights, whatever catches your fancy!
ACTIVITIES TO DO
There's an abundance of rec leagues on campus (dodgeball anyone?)
to get involved with. Be sure to sign up for Storm the Wall and Day of the
Longboat and tick off these events from your UBC bucket list. The AMS's
annual Block Party is a guaranteed banger and the best way to celebrate
the end of the school year.
PLACES TO GO
From Pit Nights to theatre productions, UBC always has something to
do. Check out our new Aquatic Centre and the Nest's Climbing Wall for
a little adrenaline or learn a thing or two from our very own Museum of
Anthropology or Beaty Museum - they're both free for students! Whether you are going to be cramming your body onto the 14,
25,480 or 99 B-Line on a daily basis, it is best if you know how
to take public transit without making everyone else mad at you
first thing in the morning.
Here are some general etiquette rules to follow:
Move to the back of the
bus:
There is nothing more
annoying than watching the
third bus in a row pass you on
a rainy day when you can see
a ton of space in the back of
the bus. Move to the back of
the bus. Sure, you might have
to stand in a different area than
your friend or you might have
to balance on a step, but it saves
people waiting for your bus
from getting poured on
for another 10 minutes.
Don't flirt with people on
the bus:
Like dear god, please do not.
We can't move away, so don't
make the whole close
proximity thing any more
uncomfortable than it has
to be. In the chance that the
person you are flirting with
turns you down (which is what
will almost certainly happen
because public transit isn't
exactly a romantic environment), do you really want to
sit next to them in awkward
silence for the next 30
minutes? No, you don't.
Take off your backpack:
Your backpack takes up space
if it's on your back. People could
take up that space instead (and
not be waiting in the rain).
Also, nobody wants to get hit in
the face by your backpack for
30 minutes. Just take it off like
everyone else.
Take your backpack off the
seat:
The seat is not where your
backpack goes. Put it on your
goddamn lap like a regular
well-adjusted human. Similarly
don't put your feet on a seat
when others are standing. Just
don't. This shouldn't even need
to be explained.
Headphones:
This one shouldn't have to
explained either but some
people are terrible so here it
goes. Headphones. Use them.
No one cares how good you
think your taste in music is. No
one wants to hearyourbad EDM
at seven in the morning even if
you are a part time DJ. The bus
does not need that. Let us all be
grumpy and crowded in peace. n     IMPORTANT
ROUTES
99 B-Line: Your go-to bus
route along Broadway. It's
the express bus that goes
from UBC to the Commercial
-Broadway Skytrain station,
with a stop at Broadway-City
Hall's Canada Line station.
Seriously, learn the route, love
the route.
4 Powell/UBC: The bus goes
along 4th Ave, but heads
downtown. It has more stops
along the way so it's not the
fastest route, but one to know
nonetheless.
14 Hastings/UBC: Another
UBC-Downtown bus route,
but this follows Broadway
until Granville.
84 UBC/VCC Station: This
express bus is basically a less
often 99 that goes along 4th.
It makes a stop at Olympic
Village (Canada Line station)
and ends at VCC-Clark
(Millennium Line station).
Canada Line: The Waterfront
(downtown) to YVR (airport)
or Richmond - Brighouse
train goes somewhat along
Cambie and is something you
should be familiar with.
Expo and Millennium Lines:
Not quite the Canada line, but
they service the rest of the
Lower Mainland, including
Surrey and Coquitlam.

U Welcome to campus. If you have watched any shitty college
movie, you're sure to know few stereotypes: tons of drinking,
frat parties and stressful exams. Am I missing any? Oh yes.
All that sex. Don't worry about it through. Despite what you
might think, university isn't just one giant orgy.
Whether you have had a hundred partners or none at
all, whether university is going to be a huge sexual adventure or whether you're waiting for a special someone, here are a few pointers that everyone should know.
Forget what you thought you
knew:
Wigh school sex-ed is a complete
clusterfuck when it comes to
preparing you for sex and love.
First year of university is the time
to unlearn the stupid gender-
specific things you've been
taught and figure out how to have
a fun and respectful love life.
Which is great, because everyone around you is still exploring,
still setting up their definitions
of casual hook-ups, meaningfu
connections and everything in
between.
Don't make assumptions:
A kiss on the first date doesn't
mean love. Waiting to have sex
doesn't necessarily lead to a
long-term commitment. Sex on
the first date (or meeting) doesn't
mean anything otherthan hopefully you're having a good time. The
only person who can tell you
what they want in a relationship
is the person themself.
Consent:
This is the big one. An enthusiastic
yes is absolutely necessary for
consensual sex. No means no,
regardless of what tone is used.
Consent is impossible to obtain if
someone is drunk (duh, have
you tried doing anything except
falling over when wasted??) — so
keep your sex sober.
Birth Control:
Regardless of your gender, you
should be prepared with some
form of birth control: condoms,
the pill or lUDs are a few options.
Remember, while some birth
control (like condoms) can also
help protect you from STIs, some
(like the pill) offer no protection
from STIs.
STIs:
Shit happens. Make sure that
you regularly get yourself tested
for STIs and STDs. Don't be
afraid to ask the same of
yourpartner(s)!
U Don't forget why we're at UBC:
All work and no flirting makes
Jack a dull boy, true. Still, don't let
emotional commitments get in
the way of academics. Especially
because you've dropped some
serious $$ to be here.
Communicate:
Shocker: talking to your partners) make you a better lover.
Talk to your partner and make
sure that both your needs and
wants are being met. There's
always room for improvement.

The most important thing
is balancing your diet and
portions. Listen to your body
when you feel full and make
sure you're packing protein
and fibre in every meal to stay
satisfied for longer. Having
healthy snacks (like hummus
and pita chips) around for
studying and limiting
alcohol consumption can also
have a huge impact on your
health during university.
If you are feeling heavier than
you would like, thankfully UBC
is  basically  bursting  at the
seams with opportunities to
get your body moving. UBC
Rec runs both team sports
and group classes year round.
If organized sports aren't
your thing, there are over a
hundred AMS club that can
get your body moving, from
boxing and quidditch to skydiving and underwater
hockey.
And if you do leave your first
year a pound or ten heavier,
also know that that's not
the end of the world either.
THE PANEL
SAYS:
^ SSENTIALS
Welcome to the fabled on-campus housing. It's
going to be a great time, but looking around your
hopefully-not-too-tiny room, it might not feel like
home yet. Your dorm room will be the place you
study and sleep and everything in between for the
next eight months and it's about 12x9 feet so it's
essential that you make it feel homey.
Get a fan: These little rooms
get stuffy really fast, especially if you can't sleep with the
window open.
Buy an area rug: Your bare
feet will thank you in the
morning.
Invest in storage units:
Specifically ones that fit
under your bed. Store jackets,
shoes and anything else that
won't fit in your closet.
Find  a  mini-fridge:  Not  an
essential, but an added bonus to keep treats and drinks
when the cafeteria is closed.
Scout for plants: Even if it's just
a cactus, try to keep something
alive, since it will add a little colour to your room. Residences
sometimes put on events that
give out free plants so keep an
eye out.
THE PANEL
SAYS:

best friends through
activities on campus.
University is the place
where you make lifelong friends, because
you meet people with
similar interests as
you, instead of being
forced into a group of
people who you clearly don't belong with."
■ Daniel Lam THOU ROOMIE?
So here's the deal: you are never going to truly know what
it is like to live with someone before you live with them.
You may be best friends, but that doesn't mean you're
going to be best roommates. Sure, actually liking the
other person is always a plus, but there are some things
you should consider before signing on the dotted line.
Living Habits:
Your roommate's living habits and cleanliness are going to have the biggest impact on your life, not the
fact that they're an Arts kid and you're in Science.
Mutual interests? You can find those with time, but
you should probably know if your potential roomie
smokes indoors.
Communication:
you be able to tell them to clean the dishes they
left in the sink? Will they be straight up when you
have your music too loud, or will they leave passive
aggressive post-its on the kitchen cupboards? Try to
pick a roomie you feel comfortable talking to.
Ability to Give Space:
Room with someone who you get along with, but
keep in mind that living with friends can be risky - it
doesn't work for everyone. The ability to give each
other space is key! It can be nice to have similar
interests as your roommate, but you can also bond
with someone by sharing new experiences.
Fun Extras:
We're not talking about their blender, unfortunately.
Make sure you know in advance if there's a dog or cat
or significant other that might be moving in with your
roommate. More is not always merrier. No one said university was
cheap - and if they did, they
were definitely making a bad
joke. Saving money is one of
the biggest challenges in
life, not just at university.
The best financial tip is
simply to budget your cash.
At the beginning of each
school year, make a plan
decide how much you can
spend. Include things like
any income from jobs or student loans. Break it down by
month and then by week. If
you're just begining to budget, try tracking what you
spend now.
If your budget is $50 a
week, try to save at least
$10 because you'll end up
saving $40 at the end of the
month. At the end of eight
months, that's $320 saved.
Here are a few other
tips for how to save some
cash while cashing in on all
the fun things you'll get up
to this year.

Hey coffee and tea drinkers!
Save yourself some cash and
make your coffee at home.
If you get one tall coffee
at Starbucks every day, that's
$2 five days a week and your
$10 that could have been
saved is out the window!
Cut the snacks out:
The same goes for food on
campus — yeah it may be
convenient to get an extra ten
minutes of sleep in the
morning, but throw a sandwich, granola bar and an
apple in your bag and you'll be
saving heaps in no time.
Nearly everything on campus
is over-priced. Nothing is
worse than finding out you're
broke because you spent
all your cash on chips from
Shoppers.
Download a budget app:
Mint is our go-to for tracking
where your money is going,
but others include BillGuard,
You Need a Budget, Adaptu
and GoodBudget. Some of
these you can link your cards
to the app so you don't have
to put in every card purchase
while others record only the
purchases you want to. Find
one that suits you and go
from there.
Cut back on the booze: T
Alcohol is expensive. Clubs
and bars are even worse. If
you're seriously low on cash,
your weekly tequila should be
the first thing to go. If you can't
bear the thought of cutting
down, make sure you're
buying your own alcohol and
making your own drinks. Going out will cost you way more.
Meal prep:
If you're on campus more than
you're not (I'm looking at you,
Ubyssey editors — you can't
rely on Chef's Corner forever)
meal preparation can save your
wallet. Once a week, plan out
your meals. Make a huge
batch of lasagna and freeze
each piece separately. Then
you can just grab your lunch
on your way out the door.
Dump the new textbooks:
Check to see if you even need
the textbooks before you buy,
and even then see if you can
get your textbooks cheaper
(or free) in these four places
before you buy new: the library
(the stacks aren't just for
making out in), the internet,
Facebook buy/sell groups
and Discount Textbooks.

THE PANEL
SAYS:
If you're moving away from home -
either into residence or off-campus,
there's going to be a big change in your
life. We're talking about the food. You
might be thinking "I cooked at home! I
don't need any help!" Well sweet
summer child, you're in for a treat...
metaphorically.
Even if you've cooked at home, did you
do all of the grocery shopping? Can you
rememberwhatgoes into pancakes? It's
fine, learning to feed yourself is part of
growing up.
You should cook yummy food for
yourself and your roomies because you
genuinely want to, and feel interested in
doing so, not because you feel guilted
into it by Buzzfeed tutorials or want to
shitpost on insta. Ultimately, you'll end
up doing the things that bring you more
joy - so what are some tips for putting
down that cereal bowl and picking up a
cast-iron pan?
'      \
0f I
Kitchenware: Less is more. Or rather, fewer dishes, more
time not doing dishes. Get cast-iron pots and pans (even an
old one from a thrift store will do), one new non-stick stock
pot (a cheap one from Amazon is totally ok), and two wooden stirring spoons. Use the cast iron for stuff that doesn't
stick too badly, like stir-fried veggies, and for baking. Use
the non-stick pan for stuff that sticks, like scrambled eggs,
and for all other stove-top tasks.
Flavour: Salt, pepper and a bunch of pre-made/
canned sauces are the easiest ways to make a meal.
Stock up! Every grocery store has salsa, teriyaki
sauce, curry bases and marinara.
Three grocery items: Keep three things stocked at
all times: frozen pre-cut veggies, eggs and a carbof
your choice (rice, bread, pasta, naan, tortillas, etc).
Pick up some fruits and cheese if you're feeling fancy.
Use what you have: If you've done all the above,
you're set to make an amazing meal. Stir-fry some
veggies with eggs, or roast them in the cast iron.
Mix in a sauce, and serve it with a carb on the side.
\sk for help: Cooking together is fun!

know what they're doing, and watch what they

a quick Google search never hurts.

Kitsilano: Home to a vast array of
yoga studios, local coffee shops,
pop up shops, health food stores
and some of the best restaurants to 'be seen' in Vancouver.
Kerrisdale: Kitsilano's older
sibling, it's a great place to discover coffee shops for studying, including Honolulu Coffee
and      Butter     Baked      Goods.
Commercial Drive: This
stretch of East Van is probably
the best way to spend an afternoon if you're into live music and
awesome food - especially Italian.
Main Street: A street on the rise,
Main is now a haven for hipsters
- and everyone else. It's a thriving arts and culture street and it's
definitely worth the bus ride out!
Downtown: Downtown has its
own neighbourhoods that each
are special in their own ways, including the West End, Granville
Street, Stanley Park and Gastown.
The West End: This is where
Davie Street is - the LGBTQ centre of Vancouver, which houses some of the best bars, cafes,
restaurants and shops in Vancity.
Stanley Park: Only the best park
in the city where you can bike, roll-
erblade, suntan or tourist the day
away. It sports a ton of the city's
attractions including the aquarium.

Vancouver Aquarium: Located in Stanley Park, the Vancouver
Aquarium is a great stop on both a sunny and rainy day. Though
facing some tough press recently, the aquarium is home
to over 50,000 critters for you to swoon  or squeal  over.
Grouse Mountain: A few busses away from Vancouver,
Grouse Mountain is an all-season destination. In the summer, hike the Grind or head up the mountain to catch a
lumberjack show and zipline through the forest. In the
winter,  hit the slopes and  skate on  an  outdoor ice  rink.
Capilano Suspension Bridge: Grouse Mountain's North Vancouver cousin, Capilano Suspension Bridge is again worth the
trip in sun or snow - just maybe not the rain. Take a daring trip
along the side of Capilano River on the Cliff Walk or head deep
in to the evergreens with Treetop Adventures, while of course
taking the daunting trip across the Suspension Bridge itself.
Vancouver Art Gallery: A good spot for a rainy day activity, the
Vancouver Art Gallery is home to some of the most famous Canadian works, including those of Emily Carr. It also has constantly changing exhibits by some of the greats; currently,
see works by Claude Monet, Elad Lassry and Stephen Shore.

There are a billion and one foodie destinations in this
city, so don't yell at us for leaving out your favourite one.
Fair warning: some of these are cheap but
some are  not!  Check the  menu  before you  go.
Saly Limon:
The best tacos in Vancouver, hands-down. Also, the
best horchata (alcoholic and
non-alcoholic). This place
has a solid variety of Mexican
eats, and it gets packed on
the weekends. Try the carne
asada if you'd like to taste
God.
Bon Cafe:
Snuggled right next to the
more-award-winning Au Petit, Bon is arguably the better
Vietnamese restaurant of the
two. It's a very unassuming
joint, and the pho is very good,
but the real beauty lies in its
spring rolls. These things are
crispy, greasy and immensely
satisfying.
U
Peaceful Restaurant:
Chinese shaved noodles that
might blow your mind. Make
sure your water cup is full -
everything here is packed
with flavour and salt (in a
good way). The beef rolls are
to die for. Also, Guy Fieri once
went there! No, wait, I swear
it's good.
Long's Noodle House:
This is actually right next
to Bon Cafe. This might
be the best Chinese
snack bar in the city and
fair warning, it gets cozy.
You'll have to share a table
with some randoms if you
go at a normal time, but
it's worth it. The xiaolong-
bao are nuts, as are the
dandan noodles. Guu:
Looking for Japanese '
food that isn't sushi?
Guu's the way to go.
Snacking   and   sharing  are  encouraged
and if you go with a
group it's a hell of a
time. The tuna tataki
is beautiful.
"The Green Lettuce: Dai Ching
1 Chicken. Family favorite foryears,
not even a debate."

Ramen Danbo:
There are a ton of incredible ramen
places packed into the West End,
but this one edges out the rest.
Nothing warms your soul better
than a hot bowl of ramen on a rainy
|   day. Plus, the gyoza is awesome.
Burdock and Co.:
This place does a share-plate style thing, but it's focused
on Pacific Northwest cuisine. Think: weird flowers and
noodles you've never really experienced before. The
other thing is it's all really good. Strangely enough, it
might actually have the best fried chicken in the world.
Absinthe Bistro:
Looking for amazing French food? Absinthe should
be your first and only stop. The last time our Design
Editor ate there, she ate so much she thought she
would vomit and still wanted more.
U Alcohol can make your night either one of the best of your life
or the worst. For some reason, a lot of us keep going back
for more. While an almost surprising amount of students at
UBC don't drink for various reasons, there are a lot who do.
Here are our tips to get through the year - and your degree
- without a criminal record and a series of bad decisions. BC LIQUORSTORE

THE PANEL
SAYS:
"As a student I would have said any time [is
the best time to party]! Now I would recommend saving serious partying until the end
of the exams."
- Deborah Buszard White Wine Sangria:
If you have a bit more
time to prep, a Sangria is worth it.
1 bottle white
wine
2/3 cup white
sugar
1-2 lemon or lime
(optional)
3 fresh cut fruits
(apples, oranges,
etc)
2 cups ginger ale
or club soda
Mix all buttheginger
ale/club soda pitcher
and chill overnight.
Add soda before
serving.
Hemingway's
Lemonade:
This drink isn't just for
English majors; it's for all
the fun people out there.
A slash of whiskey
Lemonade
That's it. It's just a really
good lemonade.
Nutella Vodka Milkshake
(for 2):
A Ubyssey classic. The best
way for lactose intolerance
people to piss off their buddies as much as they can.
1/3 cup of Nutella
3/4 cup of milk
31/2 cups of vanilla
icecream
5 oz of vodka
Mix in blender and enjoy!

"When in doubt, drink another glass of
water. Your liver (although made of amazing-
ness that saves us with most stupid drinking
decisions) likes a moment or two of reprieve
every once in a awhile. Oh, and plan your
bus route home in advance cause boy, does
that save you a few panic attacks at 1 a.m."
- Nina Payne
U ...but party smart. We're
not endorsing any of
these, but we all know it's
safer to know what you're
getting into before you
get in too deep.
Marijuana:
Weed is by far one of the
safest drugs that you can try.
It's not addictive and an "overdose" will just be some really
intense hungerand existential
adventures. Vancouver is
known for its liberal attitude towards weed, but
that still doesn't mean you
can be dumb about it. Be
sure that your source is a
reliable and trustworthy one.
Cocaine:
Stay the hell away. Cocaine
might make you feel like a
god for a little bit, but the
risks and long-term effects
that it can have on the
body make it a big gamble.
Inevitably you'll seem like an
asshole to your sober friends
and the comedown the next
day will make you wish you
were dead. Plus it gets real
expensive, real fast.
Adderall:
Some of you will try study
drugs at some point. They
can get you out of an
academic bind and you'll
feel like a genius as pages
and pages of essays flow out
of you with ease. But if you
don't have a learning disability
this drug will probably ruin
your life. Your degree won't
be worth much in rehab.
Mushrooms:
Mushrooms are an eight
hour trip in which everything
is beautiful and you feel
amazing. When it wears off
you have no hangover or
comedown and the negative
effects are almost nonexistent. Nature is the best place
for this but be sure that you
are with people you feel
safe with.
THE PANEL
SAYS:
"Find your squad. Party with those you trust and
care about. Times are more fun if you all take one
more shot past where you should have stopped.
Regrets are less painful if you have someone
pushing cups ofwateratyou.And comraderieonly
grows as your friend apologizes for the previous
night when they could only speak in French."
- Maria Sottile ACID:
Set aside a full day for this one.
Acid takes your mind and body
for a ride that will break you
down to nothing and force you
to rebuild yourself. It's an
experience that's not for the
faint of heart and should be
carefully planned out, but is
well worth it if you're looking
for some good self-discovery.
Fentanyl:
Speaking of harmful additions,
fentanyl is a huge one. In fact,
it's the one to look out for.
Vancouver is projected to have
400 overdose deaths in 2017
and fentanyl is a huge part of
this. If what you're picking up
has fentanyl cut into it, there is
a serious possibility that you
mightdie.
MDMA/Ecstasy:
You will feel amazingly happy
and lose all sense of worry, but
this drug is highly addictive
and can destroy yourwellbeing
and relationships. Be aware
of who you're buying from
because many tablets contain
little to no MDMA and can
contain something else
entirely.
Both Student Health Services
and University Pharmacy have
Take Home Naloxone (THN)
available so please consider
getting one if you're at risk of
opioid overdose or to those at
risk of witnessing an
overdose.
Known drugs being cut with
fentanyl: marijuana, heroin,
cocaine and oxycodone. We love Vancouver. Trust us,
if the rent was a little cheaper, we doubt anyone would
live anywhere else. But the
Pacific Northwest is one of
the most beauiful places
in the entire world and not
exploring a little of it while
you're here is a complete
and utter shame.
But we get it, we're all poor
students who can barely
scrap enough money to buy
Coppertank's Triple Long
Island Iced Tea and all our
spare time goes into learning
coding or whatever can
make us a touch more
employable. But trust us on
this too - it's totally worth it.
So here are our suggestions to get your butt out
of Vancouver.
Join a club:
A ton of clubs do a lot of
traveling. The VOC and
SkiandBoardClubbothrun
trips within and
outside of Vancouver.
Check out the
Sunshine Coast:
North of the Lower
Mainland is the Sunshine
Coast. Whether you're
looking to tan on a boat
all day or want to
explore the great
outdoors, the Sunshine
Coast is where it's at.
Visit the Island:
Vancouver Island is worth
the trip. Victoria is BC's
capital and basically
popping at the seams
with everything a hipster
would need. Torino (#the-
realwestcoast) is on the
west side of the Island. As
Canada's Surf Capital and
an adventurer's dream,
it's worth heading up.
Whistler:
Whistler has three things
that you should see: 1)
Whister Blackcomb -
the mountain that has
amazing hikes during the
summer and incredible
skiing during the winter. 2) The surprisingly
good range of resturants.
3) The absurd amount of
Australians there.
U If you have access to
a car, the world is your
oyster.
Head east:
The Canadian Rockies are something you
should see at least once
in your life (and not from
a plane). At the border of
BC and Alberta, Banff is a
tourist favourite and Jasper National Park is right
next door. Lake Louise is
amazing. If you like the
outdoors, the Rockies
offer some of Canada's
best.
Hello America:
Whatever your feelings
on the current administration, the American
West coast is worth a trip.
Seattle and Portand are
both reasonably close
and just south of Oregon
there's a really nice place
not a lot of people know
about-California.
Use YVR:
Flying is stupidly expensive in Canada, so be savvy with your ticket buying
and use apps like Kayak
to get good rates.

J "°Q 85
Now, you've gotten to the
end of the Guide, you must
be thinking "What is The
Ubyssey? How do they know
so much about UBC? Are
they cool? Hip with the kids?
Funky fresh?" This is the part
of the Guide where we loudly
yell for all to hear: "We are The
Ubysseyl We are funky fresh!"
The Ubyssey has been UBC's
official student newspaper since 1918. We publish
in print every Tuesday and
publish online everyday. We
bring you the news, reviews,
insider information, humour
and history that's important
to students. And we know
what that is because we're
students too.
If you're interested in knowing what's going down on
campus, make sure to follow
us on Facebook or check out
our website ubyssey.ca.
If you want to write news,
features, sports or culture?
Come to The Ubyssey. If you
want to take photos, shoot
and edit video, or help
design page and illustrate? We want you. If
you just want a fun group to
hang out with who occasionally go to a mansion on an
island and drink in a hot tub
on the roof of that mansion,   we    also    do   that.
Whether you dream of a future in journalism or you just
want to see your name in
print once, we have a place
for you and our doors are always open. No experience
needed, just a good attitude.
If you're interested in joining us
or just want to say hi, check
