Dear Graduate Students,
We ask you to consider coming to our Special General Meeting on December 11th. Your presence could mark a fundamental shift towards efficacy and efficiency within our organization. We want to be better. Help us out; it will be short and sweet, and after we’ll feed you!
You may now check out the latest escapades of Carter the Coyote, plan to have breakfast with us at our Polar Express Party next week, and even consider participating in our very own GSS Video Clip Competition! A Happy Thanksgiving to the Americans among you, and a warm Congratulations to UBC’s newest graduates! You made it!
GSS Social & Recreational
Winter is here! Join us on Saturday, December 6th from 9-11am for the GSS Polar Express Party, a pancake breakfast brimming with Christmas cheer at Acadia Park’s Activity Room! There shall be some craft making, Santa may even show! The event is Free! Bring donations for the AMS Student Food Bank though, so we can spread some cheer. Bring friends, bring all your kids!!
Enter the Inaugural GSS Video Clip Competition! It’s an opportunity to showcase aspects of your country and culture with your UBC Community. We can’t wait to see what you can do! The task is to create a 3-10minute video, made up of photographs and music from home. There’s tons of room for interpretation, and we’ve got useful guidelines and resources on our website to get you going! Participate! Nothing is too familiar, nowhere too distant. Do it by January, 2015, for therapy, because you like to win. WOOT!

The GSS coffee social is back, off campus, and just in time to help you unwind as you settle down for your end of term exams and papers, and/or holiday preparations! See you Tuesday, December 2nd, from 4:00pm-5:30pm at the BC Cancer Research Centre, on 675 West 10th Avenue. We’ll be in the lunchroom on the ground floor (turn right after the reception and walk to the end of the hallway). 🙂
Out & About
UBC’s Philippine Studies Series invites you to join them on Monday, December 1st, between 5-6pm at the Liu Institute for Global Issues, as they reflect on the super typhoon Yolanda/Haiyan, which ravaged through the Philippines one year ago and cost many their lives and sense of wholeness. The event is called WALANG-WALA/ Point.Zero.
Also, The Faraday Show is UBC’s annual science lecture, designed for children (and the young at heart), presented by the Department of Physics & Astronomy. It promises the best fun. Go! It’s on Sunday, December 7th 2-3:30pm, at the UBC Hebb Theatre. Just bring non-perishable food items for the Greater Vancouver Food Bank!
#GivingTuesdayCA is December 2nd. What special thing will you do?
