26 Things Every UBC Student Needs To Do Before Graduation

University life is complaining about a sneaky prof, bitching about random people, partying with friends until 6am, sending papers at 11:59pm and living on take away food. But most importantly, it's about building lifelong memories...

Remember your first year? You were full of hope, and proud of studying at one of the best universities in Canada. Four years later, tears and sweat have clouded your expectations and people have given you the best (and worst) memories. You've grown up, maybe not the way you're expected to, but disappointments and failures have made you capable of entering into the "real world".

Graduation day will be the beginning of a new you. Time for the "goodbyes", the "sorries", the "I love yous", to people that really matter. You will never be as free as you are now. Be proud of your accomplishments and failures and enjoy the UBC student experience until the last minute!

Here is a list of 26 things every UBC student needs to do before graduation:
