Get to Know CBU

Hi there-

I heard you are hoping to learn more about me before you dive in to designing what could be the inspiration for the next CBU logo! Well let me share a bit about me and help you get to know me more!

I’m Cape Breton University, but most of my friends call me CBU. I have a big family– many live on Cape Breton Island, but it seems lately that many of my family members come from all around the worldmore than forty countries in fact.

I have wide interests, but I am passionate about Aboriginal culture and economic development and I am a proud member of the arts scene on Cape Breton Island. I also love sports, although I am not sure I would ever make it onto a varsity team!

Lately, I’ve been noticing that things are changing around here. There is this surge of energy driven by a group of people who are doing things differently than what I’ve seen in the past. They’re creative, confident, young and feisty; they have a global perspective; they care about people and the environment; they have an entrepreneurial point of view; and are being supported by amazing mentors.

It’s a really exciting time to be living on Cape Breton Island. And, I am stoked to be a part of that.

Between you and I, I’ve noticed that things are changing all the time. I mean Google wasn’t even invented when my parents were my age. Oh, I’m 24, by the way.

So, what’s next? Well, right now I am discovering the effect that I am going to have in the world. What’s that, you ask? Well, I am not 100% sure yet, but you’ll know for sure once I find out.

Want to know a secret? You too are going to do amazing things. Trust me, it’s all going to happen because we’re going to happen, together on Cape Breton Island.

Now that you know a little bit about who I am, I need your help. I am thinking about getting a tattoo and really want it to represent who I am. It would be awesome if you would create a symbol that represents me – all of me – CBU!

Are you up for the challenge?

I sure hope you are! Remember to head on back to to get all the other information you need, this is also where you can submit your finished artwork by October 3rd.

I can’t wait to see what you’ve come up with!
