1915-16 Year One:

Trek Magazine - - Late Return -

UBC opens. Classes be­gin on Thurs­day, Septem­ber 30, 1915. Just over two weeks later, on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 15, the stu­dents gather in the Arts build­ing on the orig­i­nal Fairview cam­pus to cre­ate an as­so­ci­a­tion with the un­usual name of Alma Mater So­ci­ety. In the early years the So­ci­ety is some­times re­ferred to as the Alma Mater, but later it be­comes bet­ter known by its acro­nym (AMS), per­haps be­cause Alma Mater made too many peo­ple think of the alumni: per­haps as well be­cause no one was sure how to pro­nounce Mater.
