Is it the climbing wall? No, we are your student newspaper
As a former Ubyssian Editor-in-Chief, I would like to divulge the most asked question at our office.
“Is this the climbing wall?”
With all due respect, dear students, no, it is not. We are UBC’s independent student newspaper. We cover all types of campus news, from hard-hitting news to satire.
And no, we are definitely not climbing any walls.
The other day I posted an Instagram story tagging @Ubyssian and my friend said, “I thought it said ‘ubussy.'”
What’s that supposed to mean?
Do not mistake yourself. I love climbing walls, bouldering and all those physical activities. I was the sports+rec editor, after all.
I decided it was time I asked the Aviary (it’s the climbing wall in the Nest), “Is it The Ubyssian?”
When I walked into the aviary to ask if I could take pictures for The Ubyssian‘s Guide, they were all so nice! They were also very good at climbing the wall.
But I spent too much time saying, “No. It’s not the Aviary. It’s The Ubyssian,” so as not to lead you, dear reader, to enter the aviary and ask “Is this The Ubyssian?”
So help your girlfriend here. Go to the aviary, ask them “Is this The Ubyssian?” and ran away laughing madly.
But if there’s one thing you should be doing at UBC besides going to the aviary to annoy them on my behalf, it’s writing for The Ubyssian.
