4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Overall there are a lot of great people at this university, with a very international culture that is very accepting. Regardless of where you are from you will find other people with a similar background and/or similar interests. There are also a lot of very attractive people here.

Guys & Girls: There are many different kinds of guys and girls here in University of British Columbia. UBC is a huge school, thus, you will see different people everyday. Also, that means you will have many options if you are trying to look for a partner. LOL. The people here are fairly nice and friendly.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: The girls are very up-to-date with the latest trends, and take an effort each day to arrive well preened. Walking anywhere on campus, you'll most likely see stylish outfits and prepped faces. Other popular attire choices are athletic clothes (very west coast!), or school sweaters. The guys are stylish too, though there is more of a mix in here between classy and comfortable. Social life in UBC is healthy, though students would have to take the initiative themselves to join clubs and make their voice known- it is easy to slip under the radar if you don't try! There are, however, adequate student-run events to give people such a chance. Interests @ UBC are vast and wide-ranged, but however, students here tend to enjoy clubbing as a getaway.

Guys & Girls: A Diverse Population – UBC has a very diverse population. In sciences, most people keep to themselves and just focus on their one goal of getting into medical school. I am in a sorority, and the greek system is the hub of social life on campus. These are the people that want to go out and party, put effort into their looks, have a variety of interests including sports and charity, and are just overall awesome people.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Pretty but Difficult to Approach. They come from many places around the world and I would say that the average student from UBC is good-looking. However, just like the canadian "politeness", the being nice part doesn't mean they're as open as a latin american or european student. Girls are rather cold here.

The majority of students at UBC is liberal-minded—in other words, open to occasional hookups. Due to the large student body population, each student tends to find a good amount of friends who are like-minded. With that being said, once a student associates him/herself with a group of friends, he or she is more likely to be in places and attend events that have similar values and beliefs. In terms of guy-and-girl ratios, it really depends on the faculty you are in. For example, the Faculty of Arts generally has more female students, Faculty of Engineering is dominated by males, and Sauder School of Business is pretty even. But students do not stay within their faculty. Most students socialize without taking into account faculties or majors, thus making the gender balance quite balanced.
