September 2015 Adieu from the Faculty of Arts! Does it seem a bit odd to welcome you to our new blog with a goodbye wish?  Perhaps, but “farewell” is an interesting place to begin.This June, UNB’s 186th graduation, or “Encaenia,” as we call it, took place over the course of several ceremonies.  The Faculty of Arts is an old hand at Encaenia: at the first one in 1828, the university’s whole graduating class (there were three of them!) received a BA.  We’ve been there at every graduation...

Andrew generously shared his experiences navigating university as a mature student with a visual disability.
