The Ubyssey

In room 2208 of the UBC Student Building lies the desks of 11 students who eat, work, and sleep at their desks at all hours of the day and night. And also one mouse who lurks in the pipes. This is The Ubyssey, The University of British Columbia's official award winning student newspaper since 1918. We publish a ~80 page guide at the start of the school year, one print issue a week, and one ~45 magazine sometime during the winter. As the Design Editor of two years, I've had the opportunity to work with the most creative and dedicated writers, illustrators, and photographers I have ever encountered. Samples of our sweat and tears can be found below.
