If you’re a Canadian student who’s received an offer of admission to UBC Okanagan, you’re invited to take part in Destination UBC: a two-week online experience where you’ll make friends with other UBC Okanagan offer-holders, find out more about your Faculty, and learn all about your new campus!
Sessions for UBC Okanagan students
Destination UBC is designed to help you decide whether UBC is the right place for you, and to discover what makes the Okanagan campus a world-class place to live, play, and study. Across the two weeks, you’ll have the chance to enjoy a number of sessions specific to UBC Okanagan students.
UBC Okanagan social events
As well as the kickoff event and info sessions open to everyone, you can take part in our six UBC Okanagan social events. These are open only to students with offers from the Okanagan campus, and are created so you can meet the students you could be joining on campus in the fall.
UBC Okanagan campus tours
You’ll also have two chances to check out a UBC Okanagan campus tour. During these 75-minute Zoom sessions, you’ll learn more about UBC, see photos from some of our favourite spots around your new campus, and hear from current UBC students about their experiences in class, residence, and beyond.
UBC Okanagan Faculty events
Your Faculty on the Okanagan campus will become your second home, and as part of Destination UBC, you’ll be welcomed by your new professors during your Faculty events. They’ll show you how to register for your courses, and find out more about your first steps. Best of all, you’ll meet other new students in your UBC Okanagan degree program.
Why attend Destination UBC as a UBC Okanagan offer-holder?
UBC Okanagan is a tight-knit community, and across campus you’ll form close relationships with your peers and professors. Destination UBC will let you start building your social network early, and make your very first friends. Plus, by discovering more about the campus and your Faculty, you’ll get a head start on knowing your way around if you choose to make UBC Okanagan your new home in the fall.
During Destination UBC, you’ll discover your new favourite things about the UBC Okanagan campus. Here are a few of ours!
