News

Last week, UBC students received a broadcast email requesting feedback on a tuition proposal for the 2018/19 school year. Some students remain doubtful towards the effectiveness of these consultations. The proposal itself involves a series of tuition increases that are said to “reflect inflationary pressures” of the university’s operating costs.

Culture

With accuracy and great beauty, Call Me By Your Name (CMBYN) captures the experience of a languid, over-long summer. It’s the 1980s, somewhere in idyllic Northern Italy. Oliver (Armie Hammer) is an American academic and guest in Elio Perlman's home.

Opinion

“I want to encourage you to push towards fulfilling them in a meaningful way, rather than showing graphic photos of abortion, meant to shame women away from choice.”

“I was doing all the things the conventional idea of self-care encapsulates: taking naps, listening to gentle music, taking a break from homework, from life — you know, relaxing things. None of it did anything to pull me out of the emotional black hole I found myself sucked into.”

“Even without a parkade there are daily conflicts between private vehicles, buses, pedestrians and cyclists in and around the trolley bus loop. This problem has been documented many times.”

Features

Founded by UBC student Mahima Kapoor, Partners In Kind — formerly the AMS Afya Club — utilizes video chat platforms such as Skype or FaceTime to facilitate communication between current UBC students and prospective students abroad, as well as younger school-aged children.

I had zero expectations of the country when I first landed in it — perhaps this turned out for the best as I was pleasantly surprised and immediately taken to the beauty of the place.

Science

Bar science: go to the pub, grab a beer, and have a scientist come around and explain their research to you — while you get inebriated enough to say things like, “If I shout really loudly, will they hear me on the moon?”
