  • CBU is as distinct as the island it’s named after. Cape Breton Island is an amazing backdrop for your time at university. From the Bras D’or lakes to the stunning Cabot Trail, there’s a reason that Cape Breton Island is consistently voted one of the most beautiful islands in the world! Located in Sydney, CBU students will have plenty of opportunity to check out the natural beauty of the Island and be back with more than enough time for a night out with friends in the city.
  • While working as librarian at Xavier Junior College, Mother St. Margaret of Scotland (Sister Margaret Beaton) recognized that documents of historical significance to Cape Breton Island were being lost. In 1957 Sister Beaton responded to this challenge and established Cape Bretoniana.
