Reading break is a great way for you to explore Greater Vancouver, UBC, or to relax and spend your break at home. Here is a list of fun things you could do around UBC & Vancouver to enjoy your break:
1. Explore the Museum of Anthropology! Did you know that your student card grants you FREE access to this museum? Admire different art pieces and learn about different cultures. Current exhibition: (In)visible: The Spiritual World of Taiwan through Contemporary Art.
Bring a friend & explore this wonderful treasure on campus! For further information about the art pieces and exhibits, check this out: http://moa.ubc.ca/
Hours of operation:
- Always want to have brunch on the weekend, but find it too busy? Try weekday brunch! Some of my favourite places include Sophie’s Cosmic Café (West 4th & Arbutus St Vancouver), Café Medina (780 Richards St, Downtown Vancouver) and Ask for Luigi (305 Alexander St Vancouver)!
- Run or bike the Vancouver Seawall! Did you know that Vancouver has the world’s largest uninterrupted waterfront path? The wall extends from the Vancouver Convention Centre to Spanish Banks Park. Perfect for a sunny day during the break! For a map of the area, check out: http://vancouver.ca/parks-recreation-culture/seawall.aspx
- Found that you still haven’t explored lots of places on campus yet? Take a campus tour! Campus tours run several times in a week, and provide you with a quick overview of some of the main buildings and areas on campus. This is a great way to explore campus outside of your Faculty’s area at UBC! Register at: https://account.you.ubc.ca/ubc/events/campusVisitRequest.do
