    Innovative, eye-opening, and self-bettering. The University of British Columbia is a world-class institution that truly doesn't hold its students back. The programs and courses offered here are so diverse that you can truly do anything you want, and ultimately let your education fuel your ambition.

    A great variety of opportunities with clubs and extracurriculars. The rivalry between faculties leads to a negative sense of community. The facilities are great and provide with great access for you education.

    It's alright. If you have passion for exactly one thing, you can easily succeed here. But if you're not sure, it will be a lot more difficult.

    The school offers a diverse group of students from all around the world. I love it here because I feel there is a niche' for everyone. There are also multiple free resources that are extremely helpful and available to students (i.e. counseling services, silent study spaces, etc.)

    UBC is a brilliant school. The atmosphere is refreshing and the professors encourage students to think critically whether it is in an English class or math class. None it is easy but it is very resourceful.

    UBC is big, get used to a lot of walking. UBC is wet, it rains A LOT but you really come to appreciate the sun. UBC is interesting, there are so many classes I didn't even know existed and the profs are always there for you.

    It may not be such a challenge to get accepted, however, it's staying in the university that is the challenge. It's a huge campus and lots of walking involved if you live in campus. Don't be deceived by the University advertisements, it rains all the time and the sun only comes out in April.
