Can you believe it’s almost December? The holiday season is upon us, and we wanted to share five ways we’re helping you get into the festive spirit. *We apologize in advance for how Vancouver-focused this list is.
Share your favorite way to get into the holiday spirit with us on Twitter or Instagram, including @alumniUBC and #ubcalumni.
From December 1-23rd, the Robert H. Lee Alumni Centre will become Holiday Central. It all kicks off the morning of December 1st with an open house featuring complimentary coffee or tea and Christmas music by the fire. It continues that afternoon with the 2nd Annual Cocktails and Carols event (RSVP required). Please bring a non-perishable item or cash donation for the AMS Food Bank as admission for the day’s activities. The festivities will continue until December 23rd with a Christmas Tree Competition, with trees decorated by teams made up of members of the campus community.
Treat yourself to something truly special this festive season! Let the warm voices of Vancouver’s renowned Chor Leoni Men’s Choir usher you and your loved ones into the holidays with Christmas with Chor Leoni. With traditional carols, holiday favourites, frosty winter songs, and even a sing-along or two, this concert is a wonderful way to experience a local treasure voted Best Local Classical Vocal Ensemble four years in a row by the Georgia Straight readership, and Best Choir in the WestEnder’s Best of City 2017 poll. UBC alumni can save 10% on tickets (get the Christmas with Chor Leoni promo code).
KURIOS, the most critically acclaimed Big Top show by Cirque du Soleil is now in Vancouver! As a UBC alumnus, save 15% on select tickets (weekdays until December 22nd) and treat yourself and your loved ones to a unique experience. Find out more.
They’re a UBC tradition, and the perfect treat for this time of year. In fact, at last week’s 100 Dinners event in Lethbridge, Alberta, alumni hosts Cathy J. Meyer, Dipl Ed’97 & Steve Patitsas, PhD’97, served a homemade batch of UBC cinnamon buns to their guests. To us, it seemed like the perfect way to celebrate alumni UBC‘s 100th year! Here’s the UBC cinnamon bun recipe if you want to make your own.
We’ve partnered with the Vancouver Canucks again for the 2017/18 season to offer amazing pricing on tickets to select games. Pricing starts at just $44 per ticket and a couple of January games have just been added to the offer.
