With the theme of “how we live,” this magazine is about the unique stories within each student’s life and the recurring themes within our community.
This February, we are publishing our annual — and second ever — magazine and are asking for submissions from all UBC students.
You look in the mirror when you wake up in the morning and feel a deep, chilling sense of philosophical dread. Maybe you should consider adopting the great philosophy of stoicism to help you get through your exhausting life.
I’ve never gone to a party and chosen to stay sober. Drinking, to me, is the essence of partying, the party’s real core. On nights when I haven’t felt like drinking, I’ve stayed in. Simple as that.
Khadija Ismayilova, an Azerbaijani investigative reporter, has won the 2017 Allard Prize for International Integrity. Since its founding in 2012, it has been “one of the world’s largest prizes dedicated to the fight against corruption and [for human rights]” at $100,000 CAD.

Concerned about Bada$$’s ability to perform at the upcoming Welcome Back BBQ while recovering from what must surely be immense stupidity, The Ubyssey reached out to the AMS, who confirmed that yes, Bada$$ is still coming.
According to SASC Manager Shilo St. Cyr, this additional funding will largely be used to continue recently started initiatives that aim at increasing the range of services offered and the reach of SASC.
The Welcome Back BBQ takes place on Friday, September 8, with doors opening at 3:00 p.m. The event is only for students 19 and up, so there will be none of those rowdy youths getting in the way trying to sneak beer for the first time.
