Asian Studies Welcome Back Lunch

All transfer and returning Arts Undergraduate students are welcome to join us for our Welcome Back Lunch on Imagine Day (2nd, 3rd and 4th years). Come learn about the Asian Studies experience and join the Asian Studies community. Meet with faculty and staff, network with alumni and mingle with students over lunch. Imagine day is your greatest opportunity to become aware of the programs across campus and start planning ahead! We hope that you will leave more knowledgeable about our Language and Culture Programs, UBC’s Go Global Exchange Program and UBC’s student work opportunities.
