Mr. Darran Fernandez with ES Connected! He is the lucky winner of a $25 dollar gift card to either the UBC Bookstore or food services. Unfortunately Mr. Fernandez was unavailable for comment at press time.

The selection committee had the difficult task of picking a name from all of your amazing suggestions. Thank you to everyone who participated! It was tough to pick from such gems as “Enroloblog 5000”, “nEwS”, and “In the KnowES”. Many of the submissions had a lot of time and careful consideration put into them – you are a talented bunch!
