UBC is not a practical university like Simon Fraser University. Most buildings on the Burnaby’s SFU campus are clustered together undercover so with Vancouver’s never ending winter rain, students don’t need an umbrella on their way to their next class. UBC however, is like a city within itself where buildings are scattered over a wider area — not practical, but far more attractive.
I headed towards the group of UBC buildings I most admired, the Institute of Asian Research building and the Asian Centre. I’d forgotten the bell beside the building, or was it a more recent installation?
The memorial bell dedicated to Dr Cheung-Kok Choi had a number of stone plaques placed near the bell with Yi (righteousness) advice.
