Top 10: UNB out ranks peers in student engagement and sports and recreation

In 2015, Huffington Post Canada asked more than 1,000 students to rate their university's sports and recreation facilities. UNB was ranked in the top 10.

As stated in the UniversityHub blog post, “The University of New Brunswick offers a mix of varsity and club sports, as well as many recreational activities. UNB is immensely proud of its athletes and promises to ‘keep their deep roots’ in the communities which support them, and strive for both academic and athletic excellence as they prepare University of New Brunswick graduates to be leaders either on or off the field.”

When it comes to collaborative learning and quality of interactions, undergraduate students at UNB outrank their Canadian peers, according to recent results from the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE).

The NSSE results ranked undergraduate students at UNB’s Fredericton campus among the top 10 per cent of all institutions in North America in terms of engaging with fellow students and collaborative learning.

On the Saint John campus, UNB students excelled on the NSSE engagement indicator, quality of interactions, with an average score significantly higher than their Canadian peers for the quality of their interactions with fellow students, faculty, staff and advisors. Read the full story
