ExperienceBU portal launches to encourage student involvement

ExperienceBU is a new portal to help students find ways they can get involved in local causes and organziations.

ExperienceBU is a new portal to help students find ways they can get involved in local causes and organizations.

Being a Brock student means being involved in a dynamic community where individual passions are encouraged and celebrated.

For months, departments and student groups from across campus have worked together to develop a new portal ExperienceBU to help Brock students learn more about  and get involved in what inspires them beyond the classroom.

Through ExperienceBU, students will discover hundreds of events and co-curricular opportunities to make the most of their time at Brock. Community members will also benefit from this promotional outlet, which helps to connect students to an array of events, causes and volunteer opportunities.

Students will be able to personalize their profiles with their unique interests and the new, sophisticated online tool will connect them with the best events, clubs, and programs available. ExperienceBU will also track student involvement on a University-official ExperiencePLUS transcript to showcase achievements for future employers.

To be entered to win a $500 tuition credit from Brock, students should login, set-up their profiles, and attend at least 5 of the following events during O-week:
