On the first day of classes, join more than 9,000 new-to-UBC students and hundreds of volunteers on the Vancouver campus for Imagine UBC, a day-long orientation event that celebrates the start of the academic year.
What to expect
Imagine UBC is one of the largest orientation events of its kind in Canada. It’s an incredible opportunity to:
- Make new friends.
- Meet with student leaders and professors.
- Get to know your faculty.
- Find out about on-campus services and resources.
- Learn all the ways to get involved during your time at UBC.
Over the course of the day, you’ll have the chance to take part in campus tours, workshops, a pep rally, and a showcase of nearly 400 on-campus resources, clubs, and organizations. But your orientation doesn’t end there – faculty orientations, AMS Firstweek, and homecoming are just a few of the ways you can keep learning about your UBC community.
Who can attend
All UBC students – including new, returning, and transfer students – are welcome to attend. Look for an email in late August with your personalized Imagine UBC schedule.
