Are sororities worth it?: Incoming first year living on res, are joining sororities worth it? How does it actually work? For example, if i'm living in Orchards, do I live somewhere else I join a sorority? Do a majority of girls actually join and does it make a big difference in the university experience? Also, what is t...

Has anyone taken ARTH 227: As I imagine most of us are, I am beefing up my schedule and trying to find that perfect juicy elective that fills a big ol gap between classes.

Unnecessarily pitting visitors vs community: MacInnes field parkade: A fancy traffic-flow model from Brunt & Associates can't answer the question: WHY? If you, like me, have found yourself idly wondering why the site of the new McInnes field has been sitting as a desolate, soggy pit of disgusting gravel-water over the last 6 months since the demolition of th...
New loophole in BC domestic tuition cap: a gchat dialogue.: UBC got some flack this year for their mega tuition increases for international students. Domestic students have been spared from drastic changes in the cost of education in recent years thanks to a BC government policy limiting tuition+fee increases to 2% a year since 2005. But that policy is ve...
FOI request turns up no records on Wesbrook Place consultants: UBC is once again using its private corporate entities to hide documents and information from the public.

This Votermedia ballot is not currently funded. It is displayed as a demo for if and when there is funding. Without funding there may be few votes, which makes the rankings less meaningful. During the 2015 UBC AMS elections we ran two UBC AMS votermedia contests: A $700 Continuous VoterMedia (CVM) contest on the ballot above, and a $1500 One-Time Elections VoterMedia (1VM) contest funded by AMS -- see info linked here.
