UBC student Hayley Pipher on how she survived the deadly 2004 tsunami
During a dream vacation to Thailand, the seventh grader had become separated from all seven members of her family, including her entire immediate family, when the tsunami ravaged the coasts of the Indian Ocean region, including the tiny island of Koh Hong.
So quickly had the water begun to rise above her ankles, that on the urging of complete strangers who also happened to be vacationing there that morning, she followed them on a climb to higher ground.
It was on their yacht which she now found herself a passenger, sailing through the night on a 14-hour junket of hope to the city of Phuket, where they imagined embassy offices might be located.

That deserves an automatic B+ at least, right?

Two $25,000 slides are part of the bill for UBC’s new Student Union Building. One would take students from the fourth to the third floor, and one from the third to the second.
