Notes From Alumni – Share Kind Words with Current UBCO Students

Notes From Alumni

Words Matter – Help us share yours with current UBCO students

Remember what it was like to be a student? There were so many conflicting priorities! We are asking our alumni to take a moment to help to brighten a UBCO student’s day by writing them a quick note of advice or encouragement.

It’s an easy way to keep in touch with campus and the students no matter where in the world you are. Feel free to write whatever you would like, but please keep the tone light and friendly. Share your campus memories or secrets about the best spots to study or, of course, words of encouragement.

Our goal is to have 1500 cards filled out by UBCO alumni (or any UBC alumni in the Okanagan). Then, throughout the school year, we will print and distribute the postcards by hand to students.

What do I need do?

Simply fill out the form below with your message and your contact information. You can fill out as many as you like, the more the better…1500 is a big goal!

What will alumni UBC Okanagan do?

We will print postcards with your message(s) and distribute them at student events such as Create as well as at specific times throughout the year, such as exams, or whenever they may need a little personal contact.
