University of British Columbia -- Robson Square
I recently attended an academic conference in downtown Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The combination of rainy weather and a busy schedule kept me from visiting the main campus of the University of British Columbia (UBC), which is several miles from downtown.
As the close-up of the sign indicates, UBC-Robson Square provides adult-education programs: Continuing Studies, Executive Education, and Certificate Programs.
From another angle, one sees some of the many downtown skyscrapers, along with signs marking the 100th anniversary of UBC becoming an independent university (it previously had been linked to the Montreal-based McGill University).
