As a UBC student, you have a ton of opportunities available to you – many of them for free, on your own campus! Here is a list of some things you can do on the Vancouver campus for free with your UBC student card.
Vist the Museum of Anthropology. Seriously, if you haven’t been to MOA yet, go. It is sooo cool! Even if museums aren’t really your thing, you can still wander through the outdoor exhibit space and check out the totem poles (although the coolest ones are inside.)
Check out the Nitobe Gardens. If you haven’t heard about them by now, where have you been?! The Nitobe Garden is a peaceful Japanese garden right next to Place Vanier that you can easily while away an afternoon inside.
Go swimming. Did you know that your UBC card will get you into the aquatics centre, absolutely free? Now you do! This is one opportunity you can’t miss – fun and exercise for free, in one stop! And by the way, I also heard they have a gym in their basement, so you can save on your Birdcoop membership.
View some art. Another place that your UBC card will get you free admission in the Belkin Art Gallery. I haven’t actually been there myself yet, but I plan to really soon, and you should too!
