AMS stands in solidarity with students from Saudi Arabia

The Alma Mater Society is deeply concerned for the Saudi Arabian students who are being required to leave UBC and elsewhere in Canada.

We are an organization that thrives on the diversity of our members, together building the rich academic, social, and cultural campus environment that we can call home for a while.
