Introducing…the ARC!

There’s only a few more weeks until we’ll be opening the new recreation space in the UBC Life Building. We’ve heard from lots of people in the community, including current BirdCoop members, fitness novices, and more about what they would like to hear the new place called. There were some great suggestions, including many acronyms and bird puns, and in the end one name emerged that truly embodied the space.
Without further ado, we’re happy to introduce the ARC. The name was selected to represent the purpose of the space and the energy that we hope all of our users will find every time they visit. It’s both a recognition of space as an Activities & Recreation Centre (ARC) in the UBC Life Building and also of the electric energy that we want people to find whenever they come to workout.
We’re looking forward to seeing you at the ARC in a only a few more weeks!
