The University of New Brunswick Ornament
Founded in 1785, the University of New Brunswick is Canada’s oldest English language university, and among the oldest public universities in North America. For more than 225 years, this respected national and international institution has been “opening the minds” of people from around the world. Based in Fredericton, New Brunswick’s capital city UNB also has a campus in Saint John, the province’s largest urban centre. Located “Up the Hill” UNB’s Fredericton campus is considered one of the nation’s most attractive university settings. In keeping with UNB’s long history of pursuing excellence in education, research and innovation, Aitkens Pewter is pleased to offer this finely crafted ornament detailing five of the university’s most architecturally significant buildings as well as its front gates, through which thousands of students pass each day following their dreams for a brighter future.
