Cape Breton University hosts incoming scholarship recipients and parents/guardians for fourth annual Scholastic Excellence Reception

On Sunday, April 13, 2014, Cape Breton University played host to incoming students from across Atlantic Canada who had received scholarship offers at the fourth annual Scholastic Excellence Reception. The event attracted over 70 students, along with their parents/guardians.  The combined total of award offerings for the 2014-2015 year is over $1.8 million, the largest total in CBU history.

The event provided incoming students who have received scholarship offers the opportunity to meet with faculty, staff, students and alumni to discuss their upcoming programs beginning in September, 2014.

Students were treated to a welcome from President Dr. David Wheeler, who encouraged the high school students to make the most of their experience in the coming years, both inside and outside the classroom. Parents/guardians and students were able to engage in meaningful conversation with faculty members and current students about what to expect as they transition to university this coming fall.
