Campus life

 Your university experience is so much more than just classrooms and computer screens. As a UFV student, you’ll join a tight-knit campus community, with endless opportunities to socialize, lead, and learn life skills.‌

Get out and have fun

In a typical year, our event calendar is jam-packed with cultural happenings, recreation opportunities and more. Here are some ideas to get you started:

Volunteering is a wonderful way to give back, meet other students and get work experience. There are plenty of opportunities for you to volunteer on UFV campuses, like:

  • Serving on a UFV board or committee. 

  • Supporting new students by becoming a Student Ambassador, or mentor through the UFV Lead program.
