The Big Finish

UNB's 225th anniversary culminated with a flurry of major events:

  • the 2011 spring graduation ceremonies and the introduction of a new tradition, the UNB coin;
  • UNB co-hosting the largest academic gathering in Canada, the 80th Congress of the Humanities and Social Science;
  • and the official opening of two showpiece buildings:  the Hans W. Klohn Commons in Saint John and The Richard J. CURRIE CENTER in Fredericton.
