KELOWNA – Class Magazine is a new publication at UBC Okanagan with a focus on campus news and culture, but it’s the satire section grabbing all the attention online

The magazine has been featuring the faux articles on its website to help promote the hard copy distributed on campus.

The latest headline reads, “McGill University announces purchase of Okanagan College.”

The satirical article goes on to say, “This announcement comes as great news for the Okanagan region, which will now be home to some of Canada and the world’s most prestigious universities. It should be noted however that the University of British Columbia was first to see the potential in Kelowna and take the risk of expanding into the Okanagan.”

Earlier this month, some of the more racier, tongue-in-cheek headlines featured on the website included, “Kelowna takes top prize for Tinder use,” and, “The Bachelorette Kate Upton comes to West Kelowna, B.C.”
