Events Update

To protect our community during the COVID-19 pandemic, Saint Mary's has temporarily shifted to virtual operations. With that, all Saint Mary's University events and travel are suspended until April 30, 2020. While we will miss the opportunity to connect with our alumni in person, we understand the importance of these health and safety measures. We are thinking of our alumni around the world as we face these challenges as a community.

For more information on virtual operations, visit smu.ca/virtualuniversity


 

Reconnect with friends, network with other SMU alumni, and keep in touch with the SMU community at alumni events! We host events in many cities along with annual events like Homecoming and the Alumni Association Golf Tournament. See a list of upcoming events below.
