Vantage One Pinning Ceremony 2015

Wednesday July 22nd marked the culmination of the first intake of UBC's Vantage One program. The event celebrated our wide range of students from over 20 countries who participated in our program this year.

We hosted a pinning ceremony to celebrate their achievement at the Life Sciences Building at the UBC Vancouver campus. Students, staff and faculty from the Vantage One program were in attendance, as well as VIP representatives from the UBC Provost Office and Enrolment Services. The students received UBC pins to recognize their academic achievements, and top students received recognition for their impressive Capstone research projects in Arts and Science.

The ceremony culminated with refreshments and socializing in the beautiful Life Sciences atrium. We take great pride in our students’ success: we are proud to share that we have students moving into a wide range of degree specializations including Computer ScienceCognitive SystemsApplied Science in MechatronicsLand and Food Systems, and many more.

A big congratulations to our students! Please visit our Facebook page here to view photos from the event. We are looking forward to the arrival of our second intake of students, arriving on August 18th 2015 for their Jump Start orientation.
