The bright side of commuting to summer classes is that the buses are nowhere near as full as they are during the school year so you don't have to bus-surf and awkwardly fall on someone's lap every time the driver hits a pothole.
It is clear to see how he engages with students and faculty across campus in a way that some may refer to as fatherly — with his selfies, background music and commentary it is endearing to watch Ono discover UBC.
There is nothing — I repeat, nothing — better than finishing exams and going to have a drink on a patio where the sun is shining, and you could care less about that 50 per cent final because it’s done and you never have to look at it again.
You’ve made it to the end of another school year, and that means it’s time to abandon the books and relax. Over the past few weeks, we’ve been graced with some sunshine and it looks like we’re finally getting some proper spring weather.
The event will be held in the Great Hall, on the second floor of the Nest, starting with a meet and greet between the candidates and attendees, followed by a debate in which anyone can submit questions they may have.
Easter is oftentimes the signifier that the school year is finally coming to an end. Unfortunately for students, it’s smack dab in the middle of exam period this year, so you may not be able to celebrate as you normally do.
The AUS is serving up four flavours: London fog, vanilla, coconut chocolate chunk (which is vegan) and honey lavender. All flavours are gluten and egg-free, so there is no excuse not to go gorge yourself in celebration of the last week of classes.
If you want to be a bit healthier, you can replace chocolate chips with cranberries or raisins. Also if you have certain dietary restrictions, flour and icing sugar are easily modifiable to gluten or vegan-friendly alternatives.
If the special guests and food aren’t enough to entice you, the party is going to have carnival games, face painting, raffle prizes and its very own Snapchat geotag. UBC, is this where our increased tuition fees are going?
We’re staying up later studying for upcoming exams, cramming for term papers due tomorrow and reading textbooks that haven’t been opened since January. What does this result in you ask? The snooze button being hit several times a morning.
With free-falling elevators in Ponderosa, sinks lacking their sole purpose in the Nest and constant electronic issues in the classroom, it's not surprising that UBC Building Operations receives many complaints from students and faculty every day.
Second, it’s not good to be sitting all day. Even if you’re at home, going outside for a while after a meal decreases blood sugar levels. Go to the grocery store or the drug store and get your errands done — you’ll kill two birds with one stone!
As those of you who have voted already, you may have noticed that there is a section on the ballot for an award dedicated to “Squirrels of AMS” which is in no way, shape or form associated with Squirrels of UBC.
It only requires one pan and a few ingredients. So if you are finding yourself in a rut of endless homework and are having a hard time making it to the end of the semester, bake yourself this cake and I promise you that you'll feel better.
As I’m sure most of you have seen by this point, William Chen — who is running for Senate in the AMS Elections — has enticed his audience with works of satire in order to get his main goals for his campaign across in comedic form.
