The Saint Mary’s Spirit

A Top-Notch Education in a Supportive Environment

Choosing a university can be difficult, but it doesn’t have to be. Just ask our students. At Saint Mary’s, you’ll build professional relationships with your professors, strong connections with your peers, and an education that will prepare you for a wide variety of career options - whether you choose to stay in Canada or begin your new career farther away.

Engaged Students

When you visit Saint Mary’s, you’ll see students talking animatedly about their classes, lost in concentration at computer workstations, and participating in lively group discussions.

As a student at Saint Mary’s, you’ll benefit from the close relationships that thrive in our small classes. Since most of our introductory classes have an average of just 40 students, you’ll not only have easy access to your professors, you may even have the opportunity to gain valuable research experience by working alongside them.

A Place for Everyone

Over the years, we’ve become well-known for our athletics. And when you visit, it’s not hard to see why. With nine varsity teams, plenty of intramural opportunities, our Homburg Centre for Health and Wellness, and our excellent, SMUfit program, healthy living is important to our community.

But at Saint Mary’s, wellness isn’t just about athletics. It’s also about taking time out for your interests, hobbies, and friendships. And when you attend a school with as many clubs and societies as we have, it’s easy to find your place.
