Imagine UBC Orientation Leaders

Welcome new students to the UBC community, grow as a student leader, and build connections.

About the role

Imagine UBC is the university’s biggest back-to-school event, welcoming thousands of students to the University. The day is full of exciting opportunities to meet others and learn about learning at UBC. New students will explore the campus (either virtually or in person), learn more about their faculty or school, meet a professor, connect with a small group of students from their faculty or school, and more!

Orientation Leaders guide a small group of new students through their Imagine UBC experience, and help build an engaged community of new-to-UBC students. 

We encourage all current UBC students to apply for this role—even if you haven’t yet been to campus! Plenty of training will be provided to ensure that all leaders are ready for Imagine UBC by September.
