How do office hours work? This thread could potentially be helpful to those who don't take advantage of office hours. (Etiquette): I'm in my third year and I haven't once gone to a professor during his office hours. I feel like taking advantage of office hours could have had a dramatic impact on my grades. Those of you who have never went likely feel the same way. Perhaps knowing the answer to these etiquette questions will...
Where to find out what benefits students have?: The other day I heard someone talking about how UBC students get a discount on season passes at some local ski hill. And last month when I bought new glasses, I was given a $100 discount because I'm a student (which I wasn't even aware of; the employee told me about it!) Anyway, I'm wondering if...
Will UBC be playing the Presidential Inauguration live anywhere on campus?: Will any departments or public places on campus be playing the Inauguration Ceremony this Friday? Ideally on a big screen with some commentary from students or faculty submitted by /u/ubcguys [link] [comments]

A word about my upcoming cross-country tour: I wanted to take a moment to clear up some of the confusion that seems to be surrounding my upcoming cross-country tour, during which I will meet with hundreds of regular Canadians to discuss the future of our country. Some of my critics have described this as yet another Justin Trudeau ‘photo-op...

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. Three months ago, I filed a request under BC’s Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act for records related to a planning process currently underway at the university. The plannin...

Thank you to everyone who listened, everyone we interviewed, everyone we talked news with, and everyone who talked to us at whatever event we were covering. It has been an extremely rewarding labour of love for both of us to make the show each ...

If There’s a Reason: A Letter from a Survivor of the Campus Sexual Misconduct Debacle: Content note: this letter discusses sexual assault I had a hard time deciding who this letter should be addressed to. There’s a lot of people I want to address, you see. The first, of course, is the scumbag who sexually assaulted me. And I guess I could talk about that. But, as a professor once ...
Reflections on Raising and Burning Flags…: As a queer man, the recent burning of the gay rainbow flag at the University of British Columbia has not caused me any lost sleep. I can assure you, however, that I’m not impervious to homophobic threats or attacks, nor am I apathetic to the struggles of the several marginalized communities that ...

We at the Talon aim to ask hard-hitting critical questions, and in that spirit, we invited all candidates in the election to answer a set of questions that we hope will help our readers in casting their ballot. Over the past few days we hav...

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.
