Re-Writing the History of Student Life at UNB.

A refocused energy and clear goal of further uniting UNB students, Campus Events is something you’ve never seen before.

Taking on the most ambitious projects yet at UNB–we’re maximizing the student experience far beyond the classroom.

Our Story.

Born out of the heart and spirt of UNB students, we’re a new type of organization planning unbelievable events.

The WHO

Director of Campus Events | Anthony Gatto
events@unbsu.ca
SUB 122 | (506) 458 7018

A lifetime resident of Fredericton, Anthony knows this city inside out and is driven by proving to his fellow UNB students how they can consider Freddy Beach their home as well. As Anthony is entering his fourth year of a Bachelor of Science in Medicinal Chemistry, you’ll find him in Toole Hall as often as you will in the SUB through his role as Director of Campus Events. Anthony’s love for high energy, unifying, top-tier events is what motivates his work through the UNBSU Campus Events brand, and he can’t wait to unveil what is in store for students of all demographics across our diverse campus.

Having his passion for the UNB community sparked during his second year as an Orientation RedShirt, Anthony has taken on many roles since to further express his enthusiasm for student collaboration, such as an Orientation BlackShirt, the Entertainment Director for the UNBSU RED Awards, and as a member of the UNBSU Student Experience Team.

When not on campus, Anthony is likely relaxing with friends, off on a spontaneous weekend trip to wherever there’s loud music, or at home taking an excessively long nap.

The WHAT

Campus Events is a new events brand created by the UNBSU with the mission to redesign what it means to be a UNB student through the highest caliber events possible.

Uniting our strong, vibrant UNB community is at the core of everything we do.

Our roots date back over 60 years on college hill, from masquerades and parades, to snow sculptures and sports.

2018 kick-off concert recap

A student-led concert at UNB like NEVER BEFORE! Get ready to kick the school year off in style... the right way. 🎉
An electrifying mix of modern beats, our 2018 concert will go down in history as a true "call to the dancefloor!" JUNO Award winning bangers, club anthems, and latin pop kept the good vibes going all night long! 🤙🏻
Our friends 19+ had the opportunity to enjoy the Heineken 0.0 Beer Garden operated by your friends at The Cellar Pub 🍻, the first EVER wet-dry feature of an event for the SU.
This was certainly a night you didn’t want to miss!

alx veliz

Our 2018 opening act is an artist whose emergence comes at a great time in music – a time when dancing rules, where cultures embrace, and when optimism rides high. Alx Veliz brought an electrifying, synth-driven pop & Latin rhythm, to this day calling students from across campus to the dance floor with the sound of his newest hit - Dancing Kizomba .

kardinal offishall

DANGEROUS 🔥 is one word you could use to describe our 2018 Headliner….or was it that girl? 4x JUNO Award winner Kardinal Offishall rocked our headliner spot bringing everything from throwback jams to current high-energy rap. It was impossible to walk away from the venue with an ounce of energy after dancing all night long to this one of a kind performance.

Reasons to love UNB? We’ve got 1785.

With a history this large, you’re gonna want to be a part of it.

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.

HOCO carnival in the quad

The rain may have moved much of the carnival indoors, nothing keeps a true RED from taking their turn on a mechanical bull! Sporting our limited edition Hoco T, students gathered in the SUB to spend the afternoon celebrating the unique and vibrant history of our university - with help from a few of our local friends of course! Goodlife, Domino’s, and Supplement King kept the crowds fed and entertained while carnival classics such as cotton candy and fresh popcorn made their way around the Atrium too!

With their seventh record, "In the Land Of," is coming out March 29, 2019 via Dine Alone Records - who better to share the material with than UNB students?

We wanted to give you a little taste of what’s coming and what better place to start than the first track, "Surrender." Available now on all streaming services: http://smarturl.it/WintersleepSurrender.

Like all Wintersleep records, In the Land Of encourages thought and introspection. The new record’s title is an incomplete thought, a blank that is filled in across the record with different places, words, and sounds. “A lot of the songs touch on this idea of being a stranger or feeling foreign in all the different landscapes in which the songs took place lyrically,” explains Murphy. “It all relates back to the land,” adds guitarist Tim D’Eon. Get ready UNB!

The album brings a new perspective and revitalized sound as the indie darlings celebrate the tenth anniversary of their breakthrough debut Elephant Shell and return from a four year absence since their last studio album, 2014’s Forcefield. The gap tested the band both collectively and individually but has also wrought a fresh vibrancy to their material.

The first track from the new album “Hercules” proves they’ve discovered something special with hooks that are stronger than ever and a loose and lively mix that perfectly represents getting the band back together. For the band, it represents a crucial piece of the new project.

“‘Hercules’ is a special one because it sounds like how making this record felt to me,” Graham says. “When [guitarist Josh Hook] and I were in the live room recording the guitars, it felt like a party the whole time. So I’m really happy that the sound of that party gets to be audible to everyone else on this one.”
