Students living in Walter Gage tower are complaining about an ongoing landscaping project at the base of the tower — especially the smell.
On the surface, Buckland’s work is almost austerely minimalist. From the entrance of the gallery, the exhibit looks like little more than a few fake flowers and small shreds of fabric mounted on plain, white walls. A few steps deeper and Cut Flowers Are Already Dead suddenly has a lot going on.
You get the sense that John Mulaney does these shows as much for himself as he does it for us. At his November 10 show at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre, the 35-year old Chicago comedian whittled whimsical rants into comedic odysseys and he wore his best suit for it too.
My editor has called Buchanan Tower “the barnacle of UBC’s architecture.” He’s far from alone. Buchanan Tower is grey, miserable mass of concrete that looks Stalinist on a good day.
Student Health Services, the AMS, drug users and campus associations are using their own methods of harm reduction to curb the threat of fentanyl. This is the health crisis that UBC confronts — and it's one that traditional health services aren’t prepared to face.
Most artists believe their job is to create art in a space. But for Esther Shalev-Gerz, her job is to highlight the art that’s already there.
But while sign languages have over 70 million speakers worldwide, UBC doesn’t offer a single undergraduate sign language class — and some departments don’t even recognize ASL and its variants as a foreign language.
But while UBC’s urban planning team is excited about the prospect of more public art on campus, the Shadow’s rollout has been stymied by negative student responses — many of them rooted in the misconception that the piece’s $365,000 cost will be derived from their own tuition funds.
Next month, the AMS will be launching the Rent With Rights campaign, an advocacy and awareness initiative aiming to improve housing rights for UBC renters.
The typical Thunderbird doesn’t fly to Hastings-Sunrise very often. In the northeast corner of Vancouver, it’s as far from campus as you can get (without stepping on SFU turf). Luckily “as far as you can get” in Vancouver is about an-hour bus ride, and while Hastings-Sunrise is primarily residential, this relaxed corner of town is well worth the visit.
Any sunlight you see is just Mother Nature playing with your weak, human feelings before she ruins your outdoor birthday party with a thunderstorm.
Admitted students will spend a year earning Master of Management Studies in Global Business and Society (GBS) from Yale after completing their nine-month MM program at Sauder, graduating with two masters degrees.
Since Canada Day on July 1, over 7,000 migrants have claimed asylum in Quebec alone — many of them Haitians who fear their status of “temporary protection” in the US will soon come to an end.
Adi Pick, a fourth-year international relations student, is one of 19 candidates running to replace the nine Vancouver School Board trustees who were fired last year. Along with being an independent candidate, she is also by far the youngest contender.
UBC is a cage, and not just for the Thunderbirds. After a couple months the campus feels like how Buchanan Tower looks; plain, imposing, and vaguely Stalinist.
