That's probably because SFU has less students. You should see all the fobs here cruising around in their beamers.

SFU has hotter Asians anyways so it's all good B)


Beamers? those are for the low-class fobs. I've seen Maseratis, Bentleys, Aston Martins, Audi R8's, Lamborghinis.....

Pretty depressing to go to school, wanting to do something to maybe have enough money to buy that dream car, then drive around campus and see the exact car you would kill for (Aston Martin DB9) with an N on the back and some kid your age got it with Daddy's money

Haha true... I swear, my faculty is like 80% female, 20% guys... And about 60% of those females are really attractive or at least a 7... I swear, there will always be one hot girl in my tutorial every semester


Yeah that ratio is pretty much the same here in Arts. Especially in my Sociology class (which is a horrible class, don't take it) :lol:

I agree, but I've always been pretty good at math so engineering seemed like a fit. Theres lots of math in econ too I guess though. Ideally I'd like to be a capologist for an NHL team. Anyone know how you get into that line of work :lol:


Okay, well that's good. I hope you find something that you truly find an interest in. Haha, I wanted to go into Econ also, but I ran into problems when I failed first year calculus :lol:

ah yes the hot chic in tutorial. Unfortunately I'm too miserable to make a move let alone strike up a conversation so I end up doing nothing and never see her again after the semester is done. Just adds to the sadness :sadno:

Don't take Sociology?? DAMMIT... I was actually planning on doing that as a minor because of the sports classes they offer in the 300 level... There's only one course that teaches about sports and it's almost always never brought on. It was suppose to happen this summer semester but they took it off so I ended up taking a class even though I didn't really need to

Haha luckily for me, I seem to see the same girl(s) every semester.. If I don't see her, I'm bound to see her in another semester.. I do strike up convo's with a few of them though and we end up being good friends.... Just sucks that I feel like I'm out of her league whenever I want to man up... Besides, every time I want to ask them, they already have boyfriends :(

Should have been more specific, don't take first-year sociology.

I'm an SFU grad. I honestly hated my time up there, everything is so dark and gloomy and no one seems to want to talk. I'm not going to take the racial aspect that some people on here have, though the disparity and almost segregation of the different groups in lecture halls was very apparent.

Things got better for me when I got my truck and was able to get off campus that much quicker instead of busing. When you get into 3rd and 4th year, smaller class sizes, the ability to interact becomes that much easier. I made some friends in my last few years there, though nothing long term - mainly just the odd phone call to compare career paths.

I feel your pain though man, definitely impacts your happiness. You should consider a transfer or try to take your courses at the downtown or Surrey campuses, as they are much nicer. For what it's worth, I just spent a month in Calgary on business and a fair amount of people there knew SFU, and that's from interacting at the workplace, bars, strip club (who doesn't on business?), and a casino. Hang in there or transfer, nothing is worth impacting your mindset or your ability to be happy.

Don't make yourself feel like you're worthless in comparison to these "hot tutorial girls." Man up, get rejected if you do, and move on. It's university, there are literally thousands of potential dates out there.

Well I kinda have to if I want to declare it as my minor don't I?


Well then, I guess you're going to have a couple hours of extra sleep in the summer then!

Sounds about right. One of the fobs on my floor last year, we called him CEO, moved out after a semester his parents bought him a house to live in as well as 200k to buy a car. He walked into the common room one day and asked if a 911 was a good car...

Yep I'll be looking into University transfer because I'm just miserable at this point, but unfortunately I may be permanently incarcerated here. Everyone I know at UBC seems to be having a good time and I think it's because the university does a good job of making students want to stay on campus even when they don't have classes. They have all these events happening and of course the block party. A lot of people at SFU just seem to be doing their own thing and can't wait to get the hell off the mountain. That to me isn't what college should be.

had an offer to go to UBC or SFU, took UBC, best decision of my life.

however, to get the full university experience, you have to live on campus, otherwise it isn't the same.

It was different for me I guess. I chose UBC over Western - in London Ontario - and do not regret my choice for UBC. I'm in first year, and have made some of the best friends I know I'll have with me for the rest of my life.

One thing that I can promise is that UBC is undoubtedly the go-to school for getting involved. From fraternities, to getting involved within your faculty (or both) you are just bound to meet awesome, like-minded individuals. For myself personally, I have created more connections and network-bases this year alone, than I have in my entire life. It works well considering I am in Commerce.

In terms of regretting, don't. Everything happens for a reason, and while you may not know it, you could've absolutely dreaded UBC.

But then again..






I don't regret this university at all..

Edit: I guess what I'm saying is, we're all still young, and sure we're going to get jobs, but like, why not have fun doing it right? See what SFU has in terms of getting involved. It would be a great start.

I guess one of the problems with SFU is that most people live further away so it takes longer to travel to and from school...this means that less people want to stay after class to organize/participate in activities...

At the moment, I'm actually deciding between universities: UBC, SFU and McGill (still waiting for UofT and HKU)..I'm probably leaning towards UBC even if the UofT and HKU accept me because I live 10 ish mins away from UBC.

Did you have a scholarship at SFU? Or did you solely choose it due to the better commute?? And would it be a good idea to move out of home for university? Any advice would be appreciated



Ive been to McGill, UBC, AND U of T, so ive experienced different universities in different major Canadian cities. I went to McGill fresh out of high school, and in retrospect it was a bad idea moving away from family and friends and my home city (Vancouver) so young and innocent. I wasnt mentality prepared for the change. Plus, i didnt really like the people on my floor at rez and after 2 and a half years there, had enough and transferred to UBC. Dont get me wrong, theres some pluses about montreal, great night life and cultural city - so your experience may vary, but that was mine.

As for UBC, i really enjoyed it. I found i was one of the only guys in my english lit degree so it was easy to meet girls. Plus i really got involved in clubs and theatre, and made some life long friends through it. So to the OP, if youre really not happy, change can be for the better. Get involved, do a degree that your passionate about (not just what will make you money), and living in rez is always a good way to meet people. You may lose some credits in your transfer though, i lost half a year in my transfer btwn McGill and UBC.

As for U of T, it was my best experience yet. Toronto is a great city, despite what Vancouverites usually say, the campus is nice and compact and centralized in the downtown core. I was a graduate student, doing a masters that i loved and met like minded people. Lived in Graduate House resdience, and these were students my age, that also liked to have a good time. Plus i was old enough to be strong enough to handle a new city, and wise enough to know what i wanted academically and socially.

hope my experiences can be of help

I'm sure you've heard all the hubub about how SFU was designed by an architect famous for prisons, right? I know that's true.. used to also be known for the "most suicides" :sadno: Not sure if that's true or not.

I go there now for grad school and it's terrible, but I did my undergrad at U of C and it was pretty fun. We used to rank dead last in all of these academic rankings but our campus pub "The Den" was nationally ranked as one of the best! :lol: ....

The "prestige" factor I think only comes into play with practicums / alumni. The only time I heard it was significant was with my friend who did an MBA at U of T.. apparently that means something to some people.

Agreed, Butcher. Toronto gets a bad reputation simply because of hockey, but I think it's a fine town.

I visited U of T once and thought it was great, some really beautiful buildings, great location, and the people were mega friendly. Most of my friends all chose McGill and loved it, though. Dunno anyone who has chosen UBC, seems more like an asian/lower mainland school

Hey so I'm currently in my 3rd year at SFU and it's really started to hit me that there's really nothing going on on campus. I mean besides the student pub and Timmy hoes to cheer me up, the place just seems like such a debbie downer. In fact, I started feeling depressed after my first year. I don't want to blame SFU because maybe I just don't like school in general and am only going because it's what society expects of us: go to school and get a job; however, I wonder if UBC would have been I guess a more pleasant experience in terms of the on campus activities going on. I mean UBC gets a friggen block party and we get pub night... Don't get me wrong, I went into SFU with an enthusiastic attitude, expecting the whole "University experience" that I grew up believing in high school but now, 3 years in, I've had none of that. I'll be 21 in september, and feel like I haven't fully experienced college for what it could be and lets face it, time is running out before I have to throw away the hoodie and jeans and strap on a tie and suit if you know what I mean. And to be clear, I was accepted to UBC out of high school but chose SFU for the slightly better commute.

Also, I'm starting to wonder if "University prestige" is actually important. Not that I think UBC students are smarter, not at all, but there seems to be this lingering belief that UBC students have better chances at getting jobs outside of Vancouver since no other province has heard of SFU. Not sure if this is true, but I do hear a lot of people saying this. And as we all know, Vancouver is a very expensive place to live so I would much rather live in a province such as Quebec for example where I would have a much higher standard of living.

Anyway, I'm sort of regretting my decision to go to SFU for those reasons (but mostly the 1st paragraph) and just want to know if anyone else going to SFU feels the same way and/or if UBC students can give their 2 cents on their college experience. Any advice is appreciated.

Cheers


I would've chose UBC, because then it would be much easier to get into specialty programs or professional programs at UBC such as Dentistry, Medicine or Pharmacy.

You can always go for the exchange program. Maybe study a year or two in the Caribbeans or this place:

beats any party thrown by UBC and you will get to experience a different culture. Imagine beach parties after finals and sun more than 3 months.

Be happy at SFU. I'm at Kwantlen for 2nd year Psych. Nursing, and there's NOTHING here. No clubs, no campus events except for some random ones, like Holi and Diwali (I'm white, so I guess it doesn't interest me. Nothing wrong with the events though).

Didn't really read through the whole thread, or even the whole post -- but why not just transfer?

Be happy at SFU. I'm at Kwantlen for 2nd year Psych. Nursing, and there's NOTHING here. No clubs, no campus events except for some random ones, like Holi and Diwali (I'm white, so I guess it doesn't interest me. Nothing wrong with the events though).


You are better off in Kwantlen versus UBC or SFU in the long run. Once you graduate, you will gave a great GPA because Kwantlen is WAAAAAAAY easier to get high marks compared to either UBC or SFU. Retook one of my Biology 101 courses at Kwantlen and got an A+ which was much higher than the C+ I got at SFU. I know that it can depend on profs but Kwantlens smaller classrooms and helpful teachers and TAs make a big difference.
