- His advice for Caribbean students combating the snow
About the City
About Fredericton: As a Caribbean student in Fredericton, you will not be disappointed while taking a break from the books! Located along the Saint John river, there are lots of walking/ bike trails and museums. The small town atmosphere makes all feel welcomed. It is not uncommon for students to switch up the scene and hold meetings or study sessions in one of the many coffee shops around town.
