The Secret Lives of UBC Students

A blog about inconspicuously fascinating young people on campus

While reporting at the University of British Columbia, I’ve met many ridiculously accomplished and interesting people—and, no, they aren’t all professors.

Many of my unassuming peers harbour stories that would jump-start your pulse. Take Jake Wall for instance: he has trekked through the Kenyan desert, dodging snakes and herding stubborn camels, all to get an elephant’s eye view. Or consider Sarah Klain, who spent two years on the island nation of Palau, tracking sea turtles, saltwater crocodiles, and dugongs.

Over the next few weeks you can read these stories at thethunderbird.ca but I’ll post excerpts and links to the stories as they go up.

By the way, do you know a fascinating undergrad at UBC? If so, I could sure use the referral! Let me know in the comments below.
