Welcome to Cape Breton University! Here you will find everything you need to know to set yourself up for success from the very start of your educational journey. From orientation, Week of Welcome, important dates and events, make sure to bookmark this page as a resource to come back to.
Week of Welcome (WOW) is CBU’s official welcome to the Caper family and is all about you, the student. You’ll learn about student supports and services, participate in fun activities and see just what campus life is like at CBU!
This semester, WOW will take place from January 4-12, 2024, with many fun events to look forward to. From a campus wide service fair to live music, Capers Basketball games and a hypnotist performance, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. You will also have the opportunity to take campus tours and meet faculty, staff and fellow students, allowing yourself to become familiar with the campus community right away. WOW will also give you the opportunity to learn more about services offered at CBU and throughout the community.
Each September, January and May, new and returning students are encouraged to participate in the many activities and festivities offered during WOW to start your semester off on the right foot. The full schedule and details of events can be found at cbu.ca/events, so keep an eye on that page to learn more!
