It is with mixed feelings that we announce the retirement of the Green College Dining Society Executive Chef, Joseph Collet.

From Principal Mark Vessey:
By coming to live here, you join a tradition of communal living on this site that stretches back with the Musqueam people to time out of mind, and in recent years has been carried on by Resident Members of Green College (“Greenies”) like you.
Patchworks is a monthly podcast run by a group of resident members at Green College at the University of British Columbia on the unceded and occupied traditional territories of the Musqueam. The goal of the podcast is to amplify stories of IBPoC resistance, organizing, and dreaming by emerging and established Vancouver-based and international scholars, activists and community organizers. The current hosts of the podcast are Patara McKeen, Rodney Stehr, Jane Willsie.
Saying goodbye to the man in the navy polo shirt who’s been looking after Green College for 15 years.
The nature of student housing is that there is a very high turnover. Every year, students move in and out, some finished their degrees and off to greater things while others are just beginning to embark on their academic ventures. Through this continual ingress and egress at Green College, one figure has remained a constant for 15 years.

The vibe and ethos of Green College is what has maintained and taken a permanent hold since its inoculation. What energies make up the community and the forever-lasting synergies started long ago and has been a staple?
Graham House, Graham House, Graham House. We know the name and we hear it often. Everything is there, the Reading Room, Reception Rooms, the Great Hall and the Servery.
Once a mansion, once a home, and once the UBC School of Social Work.
Some people say things are meant to be.
