In keeping with the time-honoured tradition of UBC students begging for a fall reading break that never materialises, it seems that 2018 is not going to look any different. As it stands, UBC and McGill are the only major Canadian universities to not have reading breaks.

The Pride flag was raised today in the courtyard between Brock Hall and the Life Building (Old SUB) to commemorate the start of PRIDEweek, a “week-long celebration of queer and trans identities” at UBC.

The Life Building — previously the Old SUB — is back in business as of January 3. But it is only partly operational, as this reopening was just the first of many in a series of major move-in dates that will follow throughout the semester.

A recent MacLean’s article reported that “only a smattering” of UBC students earn double degrees. This number turned out to be only five to six per cent for undergraduate arts students, according to Stefania Burk, associate dean of academic in the faculty of arts.
