Humans of ISAO

The University of New Brunswick is home to humans from more than 100 countries. Each year, international students from around the world arrive on our Fredericton campus, bringing with them stories and cultural experiences from their home countries to share with us.

Our stories

'Humans of ISAO' is a project aimed at showcasing our international community and the diversity that our students bring. Visit the International Student Advisor's Office (ISAO) Facebook page to read more of our student stories and find out about how our office can support you.
