On Friday, September 6, UBC hosted UBC Pride which featured resource booths, activities and performances. Before the event took place, many UBC community members expressed cynicism, considering the university’s recent track record with the LGBTQIA2S+ community. We sent a few writers to attend the events and share their thoughts.
UBC’s physics and astronomy department was lucky to host Dr. Barry Barish, one of the recipients of the 2017 Nobel Prize in physics. Barish began his talk by describing that space-time is extremely stiff and hence changes in distance are very small, which is why the observed effects are so small as well.
UBC is known to attract a large population of international students, but sometimes we forget that our community is made up of several exchange students too.
As a student, it can be hard to carve out time to take care of your health, but in the long run you will appreciate it.
