Each year at UBC brings new and exciting things, and this past year was no exception. From signature events and experiences to fresh faces and new friendships, life at UBC leaves lasting memories.

Let’s reminisce with photos that capture some of our best moments this year.

Splash. Cold water—no, ice water. Disrupting the stillness of winter, running through the waves, collapsing in laughter.

Term 2

Snowball Fight

Excited UBC students disturbed the peace of the thick white blanket that fell over campus—in a frenzy of snow-throwing madness.

The end of a school year marks the beginning of a new chapter. Reflect on the fond memories, tweak your UBC bucket list, and savour every university moment—your time at UBC is what you make of it.
