Organizations on Campus

The University of New Brunswick  and Saint Thomas University African Student Union provides a strong voice towards the realization of unity for the African students within the university community and beyond. In order to achieve this great goal, we organize activities on campus each year gathering all African students and others who are linked to the continent by way of ancestry, research, experience, or interest. These events include the celebration of the African Night, which is a major event on campus. Proceeds from this event are used to support other charitable organizations and for the running of the union. For more information about our activities and how you can get involved to support this laudable service, please contact:

The Indian Student Association (ISA) is the community and social group of all the students who are from the resourceful country of India and of Indian origin. ISA at UNB has a long and interesting history. It was the first international student association in the University of New Brunswick. Born amidst controversies in 1962, ISA had to explain to the local community that the formation of the association was not for ethnic isolation but an expression of rich culture and heritage of India. The reason was later well accepted and supported by all. ISA was also the mother of another organization known as the South Asian Society which was formed in 1997. Any one who wishes to join the ISA are more than welcome, to know and enjoy the richness of India and its masses.
