CUSmile 2020

November is UBC Thrive month! 

Thrive is a time where we come together as a UBC community to learn about, talk about and explore ways to support mental health and wellbeing. 

As a part of Thrive month, the CUS introduces CUSmile! CUSmile is a 2-week long initiative to promote different ways to thrive as a student. We hope to encourage students to participate in the events, challenges and giveaways from a variety of amazing CUS Services!
