US Thanksgiving

Our US Thanksgiving event provides an excellent opportunity for students currently studying in the United States to connect with current students, staff, and advisors to learn about undergraduate academic programs, admissions information, scholarship opportunities, and more. You’ll also get a taste of what you can look forward to as an undergraduate student inside and outside the classroom. The program includes:

  • A campus tour led by current UBC undergraduate students.
  • Lunch with UBC students, staff, and advisors who can answer questions about student life and your programs of interest.
  • An opportunity to learn about admission requirements and awards opportunities, plus a summary of the application process.
  • A panel with current UBC undergraduate students who can provide their “real life” perspectives on UBC.
  • An introduction to UBC’s innovative facilities, vibrant campus life, and supportive student services and resources.
