Moderators are blocking comments in that cry-for-help thread: Are you KIDDING ME!? This person is seriously struggling and going through some shit. They have nowhere to go but still have the foresight to ask for help on Reddit. But you block that thread? Censoring depression doesn't make it go away. We are not sheep that you need to make it seem like UBC i...
How long before you follow up on an email sent to a professor?: I sent an email to a prof about a research project that I really want to get involved with. If I don't receive anything back from him should I follow up on my email to ask? How long should I wait? Would it be inappropriate to visit his office? submitted by /u/secretamphibian [link] [com...
What options are there if you didn't get into IR??: I applied for IR and didn't get in. They told me to change my major to ECON, POLI or HIST but tbh I don't want to change. I didn't get in bc I got low grades in my first year as I was dealing with health issues. So in my second year, I had to work hard to get straight As and increase my GPA whic...

It is important to recognize the ways in which...

It regularly ranks among Canada’s top universities, has a vibrant student community, and the view of the mountains from the flagpole is hard to beat. I also love the variety of events regularly held here, often featuring highly acclaimed (and sometimes co...

How do I do a prank?: Dear Winnie, I??m not very funny and I don??t understand how jokes work, so instead I was thinking of pulling an April Fool??s Day prank. What would you suggest? Reader ?? Dear Reader, April Fool??s Day has a long history of people inconveniencing their friends and family while exploiting th...

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.
