There is no better way to experience LFS than to visit campus and meet with our students, staff and faculty. Join us in-person at our on-campus events, like our Preview Days and UBC Welcomes You, or visit throughout the year by joining a UBC Campus Tour. If the Vancouver campus is too far for you, you can join us at various UBC events in your community across Canada and the US, or contact us with your questions – we’re always happy to help.

On-Campus Events

Freshman Discovery Day

This event is for admitted US high school students and their families! Meet Ella Wong, our international academic advisor, who will be on hand to meet with students and answer their questions. Professor Nina von Kyserlingk, an LFS Faculty member in Applied Biology, will be doing a mock lecture at this event, so you’ll get a chance to meet and chat with her, and learn more about what being in a university class is like. Both Ella and Nina look forward to meeting and speaking with students and families about studying in LFS.
