If you haven’t had the opportunity to visit the Okanagan campus, it features a variety of settings and state-of-the-art facilities that offer a perfect lunch-time escape. There are also some wonderful activities, groups, and events that many of us in ES Okanagan enjoy participating in. See the list of our favourites
below, and the reasons we keep going back:
Where: Campus Trails
Why: Experience the beauty of our rural campus, re-energize, catch up with colleagues, commune with nature, savour a moment of peace and solitude during a busy day.
Where: UBC Library
Why: You can browse the books forever!
What: University Choir
Why: Find your voice while connecting with others who love music.
What: Anime Club
Why: Meet others who appreciate this much-loved genre.
Where: The Commons
Why: The Comma has the best lemon lavender donuts, excellent gluten-free baked goods, and tasty market bowls, while the building itself offers some of the best views on campus.
Why: Join a group fitness class to work off some steam or enjoy some shavasana in a yoga class to break up your work day.
Why: Put together a team to compete in this fun-filled event and learn who amongst you is a master rock/paper/scissor champion and who can spike a volleyball while sitting on the floor!
Why: IPS offers such a welcoming space where there are often events happening for all to enjoy, and everyone at the office is so friendly!
Where: Aboriginal Centre
Why: Aboriginal Programs & Services (APS) hosts a weekly luncheon in the Aboriginal Centre where you can connect with students, staff, and elders.
