On September 7, join thousands of new-to-UBC students and hundreds of volunteers for Imagine UBC, your orientation event that celebrates the start of the academic year. For most students, Imagine UBC replaces the first day of classes.
By early September, you’ll receive an email with your personalized Imagine UBC schedule. Most new-to-UBC students will be invited to attend a combination of in-person events and virtual events throughout the day. All UBC students will be invited to the virtual Main Event and the virtual UBC Pep Rally – we can’t wait to see you there!
What to expect
Imagine UBC is an incredible opportunity to:
- Make new friends
- Meet student leaders, professors, and the Dean of your faculty
- Find out about services and resources
- Learn all the ways to get involved during your time at UBC
Over the course of the day you’ll connect with a small group of other new students from your Faculty, join the entire UBC community for a virtual pep rally, check out hundreds of virtual booths hosted by current students for UBC’s clubs and organizations, and start to find your place at UBC.
No matter who you are and what you are interested in, there is something for you at Imagine UBC.
