Go Global Fair


Originally uploaded by matthewberry.
FICUBC participated in the University’s Go Global Fair that shows the various countries UBC students attend on exchanges and volunteer abroad programs. All the booths were great and the African section was bumping with loads of drumming sessions 🙂

Just a reminder to those who expressed an interest in FICUBC @ the fair, our next general meeting will be this Thurs Oct 5 from 1-2pm in our office in the SUB (down the hall from the Ubyssey on the left).

"Let us not imitate the historians who believe that the past has always been inevitable, and thus suppress the human dimension of events"
