            Small class sizes, first-rate instruction, picturesque campus

            Attending StFX was a leap of faith for someone with no links to Nova Scotia but it was the best decision I ever made. I received first-rate instruction from professors at the top of their field right from the get go, I felt welcomed and empowered to freely pursue my passions, and the connections I made will last a lifetime. What kind of impact did attending StFX make for you?

            With Homecoming around the corner I'm thinking of all the wonderful things StFX did for me - lifelong friendships, development of leadership skills, athletic and academic challenges to better myself and set higher goals for the future. What did StFX do for you and how did it change you for the better?
