September-Style Motivation

Dear Reader,
Welcome to The Point – UBC Recreation’s online magazine!
And welcome to September 2014! The most motivated time of the year! Take us, for example, we’ve got this article out an impressive 23 days into September. That’s going to be hard to top, with plans already set to abuse October’s 31st day. And as ambitious as it might sound, our goal is to maintain this September-Style-Motivation all year long. But you know, here’s the thing:

  • UBC Recreation promotes well-being through sport and recreation.
  • So things like drop-in sports, dance classes, campus-wide events and more!
  • The whole organization hires hundreds of people to get you movin’ and groovin’!

But that is, of course, with one large exception: the Digital Media crew. Ah yes, the small dusty group of five students in the small back office by the broken fax machine, across from mop storage – and a ghastly 75-80 strides away from the 2012 Water Cooler of the Year. After not making the cut in dance auditions, and being the last-pick at recess, we found haven in this windowless cellar, where we:

  • Bring you the latest news from UBC Rec., via Twitter, Facebook, Instagram & this blog!
  • Host contests for you, answer your questions, and share cool online stuff with you!


It’s a pretty fun job, but with the state of the fax machine being what it is, you can understand why our motivation might waver. So this is what we need from you. We need you to enter the World Wide Web, and read what we write. Tweets, posts, Instagrams, or blogs, if we make it – you view it. And until our next blog (It’s going to be about Day of the Longboat!), we would recommend continuous page-refreshing – once every 6-7 minutes ought to do it. And in return, we’ll keep filling you in with the latest and greatest from UBC Recreation, an organization that can definitely get you motivated through their active programs.
Thank you for your cooperation,
The 2014/15 Digital Media Crew
