About
Cape Breton University is a unique place where students who believe that they can actually have an effect in the world discover what that effect is going to be. It is one of Canada’s youngest and most ambitious universities with a comprehensive set of liberal arts, science and professional programs and a unique commitment to community, economic development, aboriginal learning and research into many aspects of environment and culture.
CBU prides itself on providing a personalized undergraduate education that focuses on academic and research excellence, student services, a vibrant campus life and cutting-edge technological tools. The university offers outstanding applied research opportunities to students, and technical assistance to business, industry and community organizations. Home to Canada’s only Master of Business Administration in Community Economic Development, CBU is also known as Atlantic Canada’s leader in Aboriginal post-secondary education.
The great thing about a small campus is there’s always something going on, the student body is always involved and there is never a dull moment. Cape Breton University is dedicated to providing students with a variety of physically active choices. Throughout the year, students will be able to participate in: daily and nightly intramurals, the Shinerama Lob Ball Tournament, Yoga and Pilates classes, Super Bowl Flag Football and so much more. The Intramural program promotes an environment of fun, fair play, and athletic competition, through the medium of physical activity. Beside this, it offers numerous student societies like Aboriginal Society, Track and Field Society, Volunteer Society, Save the Children Society, Orange Army etc.
The university is as distinct as the island it’s named after. Cape Breton Island is an amazing backdrop for student’s time at university. From the Bras D’or lakes to the stunning Cabot Trail, there’s a reason that Cape Breton Island is consistently voted one of the most beautiful islands in the world.
