    Hi Lukas, sorry! These events are closed to the UBC Community. If tickets are left the day before the event we open them to the public, but with about a 150 tickets left I don’t think we’ll be doing that.

    Michelle: There are only a handful left! If you haven’t already, pick yours up asap.

    Rex: Yes, we plan on recording this talk and posting the video on the website.

    Are there any tickets left now? Is it possible to get one at the door?

  4. Nick Zarzycki

    Alli: All of the tickets at the box office have now been distributed. If you’d still like to attend, however, do come and join the standby line before the talk tomorrow – you will most likely be able to gain entry into the event, as every year a substantial number of ticket holders don’t show up on the day of the talk.
