Bridges Polar Dip
“Our 30th Annual Bridges Polar Dip was on February 2nd, 2019, with hundreds jumping into a freezing cold pool to raise money for the IWK Children's Hospital in Halifax, NS. Our house committee worked hard day and night, making sure our ideas implemented were successfully reached that day. Before our dip, we had a speaker come in to discuss their families' time at the IWK, making the house truly understand our mission and vision. Open to the public, many dipped throughout the day in their summer clothes, with the event lasting two hours. Then, we finished it off with an IWK beach themed dance open to all residences at the SUB. With the help of our house committee, and everyone who donated and participated, together we raised over $2,300 for our charity. Special thanks to everyone who helped put this amazing event together and for believing in us!”
eus engineering week
EUS Engineering Week is the chance for students to have fun before midterms crush our souls. From January 14th to 18th, the EUS hosted a Trivia Night at the Cellar, a Board Games Night at the Board Game Café, and a free Ski Trip to Crabbe. To top it all off, on Friday the EUS hosted the second ever Engineering Banquet! The banquet had 200 students in attendance and featured a free three course meal. Sprinkled throughout the night was door prize trivia which included a free night at the Delta, a Keurig machine, a google home, and gift baskets assembled with care.
6th Annual Extra Life Charity Gaming Marathon
This year, the CSA hosted the 6th Annual Extra Life Charity Gaming Marathon right here on the UNB Fredericton campus. This event is part of an international fundraiser to raise money for the Children's Miracle Network. Participants play games for 24 hours (video games, card/board games, trivia & more!) While playing, we are also raising money for the IWK, where sick children in our area will be treated. At our event, we provide food, tournaments, prizes, and group games for all attendees. EVERYONE is welcome at our Extra Life event! This year, 117 people attended the gaming marathon from across many different disciplines. Leading up to that, we also held several team fundraising events, which were very well attended. We are happy to report that we raised nearly $4000 by game day this year!
RBC winter carnival
Since 1956 the Winter Carnival has been a staple at UNB. This year, UNBSU Campus Events, UNB Ski & Board Club, RBC, and world-renowned Canadian musicians re-invented what winter fun is on campus! From the concert in the SUB featuring Shaun Frank and WAVES, to the Polar Dip and Rail Jam + Apres-Ski, a true celebration of UNB's history and spirit was on display. Hundreds of students from all disciplines and backgrounds came together to invigorate the quad with their skis and boards and transformed our cafeteria into a wicked concert venue.
Founded in 1785 the University of New Brunswick stands as Canada’s oldest english speaking university, an honour filled with centuries of traditions we as students couldn’t wait to be a part of. UNBSU Campus Events took over the Friday of Homecoming 2018 to deliver an unforgettable day of celebrating our rich history, as well as the 6000 undergrads who make our campus the home it is today.
