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.
The goal of this event is to raise awareness in order to sustain their network and visibility at UBC. Students will be hosting their own events in the forms of workshops and conferences next week, which you can find on their calendar here.
Cuts for Cancer is an event open to all of the UBC community, but is specifically looking for hair donations of eight inches or more. The goal of the event is to make wigs for children suffering from medical hair loss at BC Children’s Hospital.
More recently, Chen published another quick-witted satire piece on his Reddit page. This time, a couple telling voters that textbooks were so expensive to buy for their daughter, a “new student” at UBC, that she was forced to live in a cardboard box.
Among the millions of apps streaming through the App Store, there are a few great ones. From helping you grocery shop, to making reservations and finding new recipes, the list below is a collection of some of my favourite food apps.
Alyssa Brazeau, a third-year student living in Ponderosa Maple House, said “right before the official move-in date for most people in September, the elevators were broken. They got fixed just in time.”
Alcohol-infused foods are actually pretty freaking sneaky. For all you know, that kid that’s always eating watermelon next to you in the library could just be getting a buzz on while he does his biology homework.
As we approach reading week, we approach the midway of the semester — in other words, midterm season is upon us. So while your head is in a pile of books, what better way to fuel yourself than some study food?
Although, the students didn’t quite think everything through. While they used a fake name and student number — which is how the misconduct was discovered — the professor started looking at handwriting from the false quizzes to find the culprits.
While you usually need to purchase a $5 membership, this event welcomes everyone. The movie doesn’t actually start until 8 p.m., but people are encouraged to come early and mingle beforehand, play some games and have some drinks.
I think the celebration of cheese is absolutely justified, and what better way to celebrate than to eat? The answer is nothing. Eating solves all of life’s problems. Specifically, these lemon ricotta pancakes solve all of life’s problems.
