Time Piece 1974

In the early 1970s, UBC students had a bizarre outlet to express their frustrations. A wave of streakers swept over the campus in the early part of the decade but the movement really came to a climax in 1974 when about 150 men, mostly engineering students, ran through and around the Student Union Building wearing nothing more than ski masks. Not amused, the Ubyssey editorialized: “Streaking just plays right into the purposes of those wanting students to forget the real issues.”
