On October 28, 1922 the students of UBC marched through Vancouver to Point Grey to pressure the government to resume construction of the university and the government agreed. The Great Trek as it was later called is quite possibly the greatest example of student activism at UBC.
On October 28, 2022 we celebrate the 100th anniversary of the trek at the Great Trek Cairn on Mail Mall.
A vibrant look back through a century of student life, achievement, and activism at UBC.
