Alumni Events

Saint Mary’s grads are a special group of people. Getting together for alumni events is a fun way to catch up with old friends, make new connections, and keep in touch with each other and with SMU. The following are some upcoming alumni events:


Did you graduate with a Bachelor’s degree in 2014?

If so, you may receive an email invitation or phone call to participate in a Maritime-wide survey being conducted by an independent research firm, Advanis, on behalf of the Maritime Provinces Higher Education Commission and in collaboration with Saint Mary’s University. 

If you complete the survey, you will be offered a chance to win one of 10 prizes of $500 cash (more information on terms and conditions below). 

In order to be eligible for the prize draw you must complete the survey be October 31, 2016.

If you wish, you can complete the survey now by clicking the link below.

The project is funded by the governments of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island.  The survey will provide information about graduates’ transitions between education and work, financing education (including student loan repayment) and their opinions about their university experience. 

We encourage you to participate - the results will help universities, governments and student associations in the region better assist students and graduates.

The answers you provide will be kept strictly confidential and only analyzed in aggregate. Questions about the study can be addressed to Advanis at 1-866-539-7798 or .
