37 Signs You Went To UBC

Buchanan. Gage. Mahony's. Wreck Beach.

If you know what we're talking about, you probably went to UBC. And those are just a few things that make that big, beautiful campus on Vancouver's west side so memorable.

Whether you're heading back to school this September or graduated years ago, revel in your UBC days with these 37 signs that you went there:

You think it's normal to drive 10 minutes through a rainforest to get to campus.

Catching the 99 B-Line was like rush hour in Japan.

Construction ruled everything around you. Donors' dolla' dolla' bills, y'all.

You dodged those gross wormy things that hung off the trees every fall.

When you see a VW Beetle hanging from a bridge, you just shrug.

You couldn't find a place to study here.

So you read (or slept) here instead.

You also napped in the Rose Garden ...

... Parkade.

If you're Asian, you ran a gauntlet of clubs trying to recruit you EVERY YEAR!

And if you're a guy, you ran a gauntlet of frat boys trying to "rush" you.

This was the only varsity team you ever made.

Beer was spelled like this, and you didn't really know why.

You recognize this guy.

And this awesome guy.

Three words: Storm the Wall.

Three more words: Arts. County. Fair.

You saw cheap movies at the Norm Theatre.

AMS politicians were as ruthless as on "House of Cards."

And this is where their ambitions went to die.

Totem residents can tell you what "suck my Kwak" means.

You stick your nose up at SFU, that ugly school on the hill.

You're contemptuous of every cinnamon bun you've tasted since you left campus.

Sgt. Pepper was not a Beatle.

There was only one Honour Roll you cared about.

The line at The Delly looked like this at 4 p.m. on a Friday.

You dated someone you met at "The Pit."

And this was where you realized your naked, drunken ambitions late on a Wednesday night.

A walk up the Wreck Beach stairs was a week's worth of cardio.

And Tower Beach was a great place for a bonfire.

If you studied arts, you know what this means.

This was one way you learned about the creation of humankind.

Your prof had office hours in this welcoming structure.

These were vehicles parked on campus. NBD.

No matter how stressful things were, you always had this view to calm you down.

And when you look back, it's hard to believe you went to school in such a beautiful place.

Tuum est!
