Share, connect, celebrate

Happy New Year! I hope 2017 is off to a great start for each of you.

January is a high recruitment time at UNB, so I’d like to make a personal request to all UNB alumni: an important gift you can give our alma mater is your voice. By sharing your UNB story and spreading the word to potential future alumni on why they should consider coming to UNB, you can directly impact their decision making or help them to discover our university. Through the UNB Alumni Referral Program, you can also help pay it forward by giving a unique redemption code to a student to apply to UNB for free or to enter for a $5,000 tuition credit. I hope you will take advantage of this great opportunity sponsored by your Associated Alumni.

Where in the world are our #ProudlyUNB alumni?

Memories of UNB were certainly called to mind for a number of our fellow alumni who have entered the Where in the World are Our #ProudlyUNB Alumni contest aimed at locating and uniting our alumni around the world. The response to date has been remarkable, with more than 800 alumni responding within 24 hours of the contest launch, and entries now reaching more than 1,600. If you have alumni friends who would like to get better connected to UNB, please let them know about the contest. They could win a grand prize of $2,500 or one of three $500 prizes - and then perhaps share the winnings with you for suggesting it! We are part of a family of over 85,000 alumni. Let’s stay connected and spread the UNB pride.

Save the date: 2017 Proudly UNB Awards

The 13th annual Proudly UNB Awards will be held Thursday, March 23, in Saint John. This year, 43 nominations were received for truly incredible individuals and groups. I encourage you to save the date for this wonderful evening honouring our fellow, distinguished UNB alumni and stay tuned for more information on the award recipients.

Please stay connected, be safe, and always be #ProudlyUNB.
