As your CBU Alumni Association President, it is my honour to welcome each of you to the CBU Alumni Family with open arms.

Our CBU family is a diverse and exciting group of people who are making a difference all around the globe. We’re located in more than 50 countries with a network that spans the globe and is rooted in deep tradition. You are the legacy of our Institution and an important part of our Alumni network.

I would like to take this opportunity to commend you on obtaining your degree or certificate during such challenging times in our history. At CBU, we can adapt, we are nimble, and we persevere.

As you embark on a new chapter, take a moment to reflect on the accomplishments you have achieved and believe that no matter what path you take, you have the power to impact people in a positive way.

Be proud to tell those you meet about your time at Cape Breton University, and make it a point to remain invested in the friendships you’ve made while here.

We encourage you to stay connected with the CBU Alumni Association on Facebook and Instagram and by updating your contact info at cbu.ca/alumni so that your new family can stay in touch with you.

Congratulations Class of 2021. Remember, as a member of our Alumni Family — you are ALWAYS ORANGE.

A Tradition of Perseverance

It is tradition at Cape Breton University to close our convocation ceremony with CBU’s official song, Rise Again. This special version was recorded in 2020 by CBU Honorary Degree Recipients and Alumni, but we feel the message still resonates this year.

We hope you enjoy this special performance.
