What makes UNB shine?

The people who study, work and teach in our community! In this series, we invite you to take an authentic look at the lives of our students, faculty, staff and alumni as we share why #WeAreUNB.

UNB Saint John Counsellor and Sexual Assault Support Advocate, 8th year at UNB

It’s hard for people to know what to expect going into counselling. It’s a conversation. You can bring in your goals, it can be so positive. Whether you’re going through something right now or not, you can do a lot of skill building.

Being able to work with UNB Sustainability this past summer has been a great opportunity to learn about all the awesome programming that is making the campus greener. A highlight for me was helping out with the free food planters and having the chance to talk to folks around campus who share a passion for sustainability.

There’s something about the UNB community that is quite special. When I have the chance to meet alumni, you hear their amazing stories and how their experience at UNB was so formative – both in terms of their educational experiences and their friendships. And when I talk to some of the alumni who have been incredibly successful in their careers, later in life they reflect and they tell me UNB was instrumental in their success.

We’re kind of the new up-and-coming campus. Our student population is continuing to grow, and we are seeing new buildings being built. We are on the ground floor of a campus that is starting to grow very fast. It might not be a very big school, but it definitely has a strong sense of community.

Bachelor of Business Administration, Marketing Student, 3rd year at UNB

September 2019

I started university thinking I wanted to do accounting. After taking general classes in my first two years, I learned about myself and discovered that marketing is where my heart lies. Some people switch majors, some people change degrees – that’s OK and completely normal.

Bachelor of Science, Medicinal Chemistry Student, 4th Year at UNB

In my first year, I actually didn’t get too involved in extra-curricular activities. I was focused on learning what it’s like being in university, meeting people, making sure I got good grades. Second year, I started jumping into it a little bit more – I eased myself in, just dipped my feet in some places. Third year was when it really started.
