Promoting Global Awareness
At Saint Mary’s, there's lots of ways to get involved. In fact, you may want to consider volunteering for Students Acting for Global Awareness (SAGA), a group of international and Canadian students who organize on- and off-campus events that promote awareness of the different cultures represented at Saint Mary's University.
These events include:
- International Night
- Casino Night
- Multicultural Arts Expose
- Game nights
- Movies nights
- Halloween events
Check back here regularly for upcoming event information. Events will resume during the summer in an online format, and hybrid for the academic year.
