The beautiful locations on our campus have helped me make it through many stressful times during my years at UBC. Whether I need to relax between classes at the Nitobe Memorial Garden or do some intense soul-searching at Wreck Beach, the views of UBC never fail to consume all my senses and drown out the noises of real life.
With Google’s virtual reality software and the small camera on my phone, I have created an ode to the places that have kept my sanity intact. Whether you’re already missing our stunning campus one month into summer or just too lazy to walk all the way down — and back up — the Wreck Beach stairs, click here or follow the link below to explore our campus in all its virtual glory.
If you have a smartphone, you can also take virtual reality photos using the Google Streetview apps for iPhone and Android, or by downloading the Samsung surround shot camera extension. Submit them to firstname.lastname@example.org to have them included in a future edition of Views of UBC.
