Dear UBC LFS Alumni,
Earlier this summer we celebrated the most recent group of graduates joining our Faculty of Land and Food Systems alumni community. Dean Rickey Yada hosted a lively virtual reception, congratulating our new alumni as they go on their next adventure. As the end of summer nears, we look forward to staying connected with our global community, and for you to join us at the UBC tradition of Homecoming. LFS is excited to be partnering with the Faculty of Arts and alumni UBC for the Culinary Adventures with The Lazy Gourmet’s Susan Mendelson, BSW’78 and watch LFS alum Mauricio Lozano, MFS’09 owner and operator of Faculty Brewing Co., on a guided panel experience Adventures in Craft Beer.
And for all LFS alumni, regardless of when you graduated, you are encouraged to access the many alumni benefits available through the alumni UBC app. It’s one of the easiest ways to access your alumni UBC benefits, savings with our alumni UBC partners, a one-touch connection to over 4,000 online journals, and access to Trek Magazine and alumni UBC webinars and podcasts. There are monthly contests too!
I wish you a safe year and I hope you will join your LFS community for many of the exciting events showcased in this newsletter.
