UBC Traditions

The only opportunity you’ll get to walk around campus naked

Undie Run

The Ski and Board club runs this, and if you know anyone involved in that club, it makes perfect sense. Strip down to your skivvies before final exams get started and run around campus with all your friends.

Storm the Wall

One of UBC’s longest-running traditions, Storm the Wall is pretty much what it sounds like — a 12-foot wall is erected on campus, and you and a group of friends (or you alone) have to get over it.

Day of the Longboat

Once a year, Jericho Beach plays host to over 3,000 people taking part in the largest voyageur canoe race in the world.

Polar Plunge

Another clothesless activity, this one run by The Calendar, UBC’s premier party-planning team. Take it off and take the plunge into Wreck Beach’s icy waters.

Pit Night

Head to the Pit pub in the lower level of the Nest on Wednesdays for one of the sloppiest displays you can see at UBC. Fun game: try to count the number of first-years making out on the dance floor.
