Another year of sports and recreation at UBC is almost in the books, and that means The Ubyssey‘s esteemed sports panel must answer the hard-hitting questions one last time. Who rose to the top? Who sank to the bottom? What lies ahead for the future?
I speak for the editorial board when I say we’ve enjoyed reading every piece immensely, and though we didn’t have room to print every submission we received, rest assured yours has impacted us, challenged us and made us think.
We feel that financial spending is an important indicator of the trustworthiness and actions of an institution, and as a society in charge of about $20 million in student fees this year alone, the AMS has a big responsibility.
We were just served notice that UBC is appealing the court case we've been fighting them on for the past three years. The one where the BC Office of Information and Privacy (OIPC) struck them down. And then they sued the OIPC. And then we won again.
It's great that UBC is trying to build more fitness spaces for students, faculty and staff, but if they are really serious about it, they should stop screwing around with gimmicks like lazy rivers and giant heated bathtubs.
We take a quick look at the teams that have ended their season so far. Women’s field hockey was on fire yet again this season; in regular season, they had a 6-0-2, where both ties came in their first two games of the year. From there, the girls didn’

Every year there are new and exciting things to do here at UBC. We've compiled a list of some of our favourites. If you do manage to complete every item on this list, please let us know how you survived.
