The purpose of this report is to investigate the popular games and activities among the UBC student body and propose ideas that the new SUB could implement in order to create a more vibrant atmosphere. The ideas proposed are based on the survey that was conducted from various students on campus. Each proposed idea will undergo a triple bottom line evaluation in order to consider the social, environmental, and economical aspects of it. The three ideas proposed are the three game tables: table tennis, pool and foosball, major video game consoles, and a movie session. The survey results are discussed in the introduction section. In the next section, each of the options are evaluated with the triple line assessment, and determined if viable or not. At the end of this report, the table tennis, pool and foosball table, the video games and the movie session had been recommended to be installed in the new SUB for fostering vibrant social spaces.
