UBC’s Centennial year will officially launch on Wednesday, September 30, 2015, the 100th anniversary of the first day of classes. To mark this historic milestone, we are inviting the university community to join us at UBC100 at Lee Square from 11:00am to 2:00pm on September 30 at Money and Raymond M.C. Lee Square (outside UBC Bookstore). Come out and enjoy some great performances and grab your lunch from one of the food trucks around the square.
Between 12:00pm and 1:00pm, we will recreate the iconic ‘UBC’ photo taken at the end of the Great Trek in 1922 in the shape of the UBC100 logo. Rain or shine, we hope you can take part in this historic photograph!
