UBC Story: Ben Dunn

Finding change across the country

Toronto, Ontario | Double major in Psychology & Anthropology | Bachelor of Arts

Looking for a fresh start, Ben Dunn drove across the country, from Toronto to UBC's Okanagan campus in Kelowna – discovering himself, and his passions, along the way.

"I wanted a big change, and the opportunity to live and study in a beautiful province like British Columbia really spoke to me. I would be surrounded by nature, meeting new people, trying new things. I really wanted that."

UBC’s Okanagan campus

Life on UBC’s Okanagan campus is shaped by Kelowna’s fast-growing economy, the natural beauty of the Okanagan Valley, and some of the best weather in Canada. Immerse yourself in one of North America’s most scenic cities, or enjoy year-round escapes to one of the region’s 300 trails or 250 lakes. With small class sizes, unique campus-city partnerships, and more than 1,200 research projects underway, UBC’s Okanagan campus makes it easy to plug into a close-knit community of educators, emerging scholars, and innovative entrepreneurs.

UBC’s Vancouver campus

Surrounded by temperate rainforest, majestic coastal mountains, and the Pacific Ocean, UBC’s Vancouver campus is just 20 minutes from Vancouver’s city centre. That means you can bike in one of the largest urban parks in North America, wander through galleries and museums, and sample international cuisine – all in the same day, without leaving the city. Given Vancouver’s vibrant culture, dynamic economy, and favourable climate, it’s easy to see why this Olympic city is consistently rated one of the best places to live in the world.
