“On Tuesday, September 2, you will come together with the entire Class of 2018 for the first and only time while you’re at UBC to be formally welcomed to the University and celebrate the start of your UBC journey.”
“On the first day of classes, campus is transformed and over 8000 new-to-UBC students and over 1000 faculty, student, and staff volunteers come together to welcome you to your new academic community and celebrate the start of the school year.”
Imagine UBC replaces all undergraduate classes on that day (except those starting at 5pm or later).
By now you will have received an email from the Imagine folks about your schedule for the day including the ‘Meet Your Prof’ session, and lunch!
