Italian Student AssociationA student-run organization representing the Italian community at UBC. Our aim is to promote Italian culture, history and traditions (and provide our amazing food for everyone to enjoy). Anyone is welcome to join, regardless of the cultural background.
Francophone Student AssociationOur club’s objective is to encourage the development and gathering of the Francophone community of UBC. This community belongs to those whose native language or cultural heritage is linked to the French language, as well as to all foreign students who identify themselves as members of this community in the larger sense (Francophiles).
Mexican Student AssociationWhether you are Mexican or not, we invite you to be part of MEXSA! Our mission is to share Mexican culture with UBC’s multicultural community. Through various cultural and social events, we want to create a student network where people can share their opinions, ideas and traditions. At the same time, we want to be a step of change in the world by promoting events that help fight inequality.
