Cape Breton University to host annual Honours Banquet

Cape Breton University will host its annual Honours Banquet to recognize the outstanding academic performance of Cape Breton University’s students. The banquet will take place tonight, November 21, in the CBU cafeteria.

“The Honours Banquet is just one of the ways that CBU recognizes the academic successes of our students,” says Dr. Dale Keefe, President. “CBU students work tirelessly and are dedicated to their studies, so we’re very pleased to be able to honour them in this way.It’s a pleasure for me to be able to join them this evening to celebrate their achievements.”

This academic year over 400 students, parents, peers and professors will attend the event, where students will receive certificates citing their achievement. President of the Cape Breton University Students’ Union Eleanor Sidley, adds, “The Students’ Union takes great pride in recognizing the students that have strived for academic excellence over the past year. We are looking forward to celebrating their successes with them.”

The guest speaker for this year’s Honours Banquet will be Ms. Michelle Lahey, an alumna of CBU and former President of the CBUSU.

Annually, approximately 400 students meet the academic standards to be on the University’s Dean’s List. To be considered for the Dean’s List, students must acquire an average of 80 per cent in all courses, without any failures.
