UNBC Establishes Northern Exposure Award to Select Campus Correspondent

December 18, 2012

The University of Northern British Columbia is offering one student the chance to learn and report about Canada’s Green University as UNBC’s first Campus Correspondent. 

“Who better to share the unique UNBC experience than one of our own students? This is why we created the Northern Exposure Award,” says UNBC’s Acting Dean of Student Success and Enrollment Management Bill Owen. “We’re proud to be recognized as Canada’s Green University and one of the top small universities in the country, within an environment that is friendly, challenging, inspiring, and exciting. There will be no shortages of great experiences for our campus correspondent to share.”

The recipient of the University’s first Northern Exposure Award, will receive the following:

  • tuition for the 2013-14 academic year
  • accommodation  in the student residence
  • $2000 in credit with the UNBC Bookstore and Food Services

Visit UNBC's Northern Exposure Award website.

The Northern Exposure Award is open to current UNBC students or any other students who are considering UNBC. To enter, applicants must create a two-minute video explaining why they would be the ideal choice for UNBC’s Campus Correspondent, and why they want eight months of top-level education and adventure in northern BC.

The recipient of the award will live on-campus and be enrolled as a full-time student in 2013-14 while taking part in student activities. Their experiences will be the subject of monthly videos and other reports shared on UNBC’s YouTube channel, website, and other online avenues.

The Northern Exposure Award features a separate component that is allowing visitors to the website to vote for their favourite video submissions. Tuition credits are being provided as prizes through various points over the next few months.
The deadline for applications is March 1, 2013.
