Fall Recruitment Events

We look forward to connecting with students interested in the Faculty of Land and Food Systems at UBC this fall. We will be collaborating with our colleagues in Student Recruitment and Advising, as well as hosting some of our own sessions, and can’t wait to meet you! Check out some of our Taste of LFS videos on this page for highlights of last fall’s events, and to learn more about our Faculty.

Check back on this website in September for more info and details of all the fun activities we will have planned (virtually…and in-person, if safe to do so). You can also email our Student Services team at students@landfood.ubc.ca with any questions you may have, as we’re always happy to help.

 

Connect with an LFS Student via Zoom

We’re sorry, but LFS Student Ambassador Zoom advising is temporarily unavailable. Please connect with an LFS Academic Advisor via our drop-in or booked appointment times to have your questions answered. Ambassador Zoom meetings will commence soon, so please check back for updates on how you can meet with Afnan, Maddy or Yolanda.

Taste of LFS Virtual Open House

Taste of LFS was a week-long virtual series of interactive workshops, presentations and social media content for anyone interested in applying to the Faculty of Land and Food Systems (LFS) at UBC. Thanks to all of those who participated – we enjoyed meeting students from around the world.

Meet the Outreach Team

Hi! We are LFS Student Ambassadors (Maddy, Afnan and Yolanda) and an Indigenous Outreach Coordinator (Ocean) – current LFS students who are working with the LFS Student Services team to support prospective students interested in applying to our programs and to raise the profile of our exciting Faculty (bios for Ocean and Yolanda coming soon!). If you are joining us for an event, we look forward to meeting you! We also work with high school teachers and counsellors who want to coordinate a Land, Food and You experience ‘in’ their schools.
