Eight dapper UBC students have secured invitations to an exclusive dinner at the residence of the university’s new president.
Earlier this morning, Santa Ono sent a challenge out over Twitter.
“First 6 UBC students to tweet me photos of themselves in bowties will be invited to dinner at President's house RT,” he wrote.
Ono originally said he was hosting a dinner for six but then extended eight invitations.
Since his first message on Twitter about the contest, student groups and faculty have replied with messages vying for dinners of their own.
Ono was named UBC’s new president on Monday (June 13). Born and raised in Vancouver, he previously held the position of president at the University of Cincinnati.
UBC's former president, Arvind Gupta, resigned in August 2015 after less than one year on the job.
