Stunts

Stunts, or rather “Unofficial STUdeNT ProjectS”, have brought worldwide fame to the UBC Engineers… not that we admit to them.

Stunts ALWAYS emphasize originality and ingenuity over vandalism, in other words: painting stuff or doing something that somebody else has done is just pointless. Even Artsies can make a mess. Remember, good stunts don’t hurt anybody or damage anything and size is not important! Most of all: don’t get caught.

    • under the Alex Fraser Bridge
    • between Burrard and Granville St Bridge
    • under the Golden Gate Bridge!
    • on the UBC Clocktower – twice!
    • In the Dean’s office
    • On top of the Wooden Roller Coaster at the PNE
  • Flashing “UBC Engineers do it again” in Morse code with lights on the Lions Gate Bridge

    • the Rose Bowl Trophy from the University of Washington
    • the door to the Dean of Arts at UBC … in broad daylight.
