Last year the AMS held a competition to name the new bubble tea shop opening in the Nest. The winner got a drink named after them, so perhaps this is the time to pull out the dad jokes and bad puns to have a taco named in your honour.
While this may seem like an unnecessary added expense, one of the main goals of the ten-year plan is to reduce overcrowding and I'm pretty sure we can all spare a dime or two to avoid getting elbowed in the face every day while commuting on the 99.
UBC tied for twenty-first out of twenty-three so it's not as bad as it sounds. According to Wikipedia there are 98 universities in Canada, so we're basically in the top 20 per cent in the grand scheme of things.
The event is in support of the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup, which aims to clear all beaches of trash and to raise awareness about the garbage we produce in various communities across the country.
Going outside by choice may seem like a foreign concept to some of you. However, Vancouver in the summer is nothing short of spectacular. With mountains to hike and the ocean to swim in, you’ve got endless activities to try out.
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.
