Spring Convocation - Volunteer to be a Honour Guard
Convocation is fast approaching and we're looking for Honour Guard volunteers. Honour Guard members will walk ahead of the students during the procession and lead them out at the end, signifying their transition from student to alumni. This is a great opportunity for you to volunteer with the Alumni Office and to show the strength of our alumni network to both the new grads and their supporters!  
Please email if want to participate.

Waive the Application Fee for Future Students

It's that time of year where many high school students and young adults are looking to the future and making a decision on where to continue their education. We hope that you invite those in your lives looking to pursue post-secondary education to apply to Saint Mary's. 

We're excited to share an offer code to waive the $40 application fee for first-year undergrad students for the 2022-2023 academic year! If you know of someone looking to apply to Saint Mary's for the Fall 2022 term as a first-year undergrad student, we encourage you to pass along a special code to waive the application fee. To receive the code, please contact




We encourage alumni who know prospective students interested in attending Saint Mary's to take part in upcoming recruitment events. These are the best way to find out if Saint Mary's is the right fit and for prospective students to get as much information about who we are.
