About Us

St. Mary's University Alumni Logo
St Mary’s University Alumni Association seeks to connect alumni from all programs, degrees and eras in hopes of creating a strong community in support of current St Mary’s University initiatives and students.

The Association also helps promote and support the University as an renowned academic centre of excellence as well as enhances awareness of the University locally, nationally and globally.

Through our different partnerships, our members get preferred rates on a number of products. All of our members can contact us to receive their alumni card, which gives them access to the library, as well as discounts on campus services.
The Alumni Association also recognizes exceptional alumni through our annual Awards of Excellence.

As a St Mary’s University Alumnus we would love for you to participate in upcoming events on campus, volunteer your time for some of our initiatives, or come out and support our Lightning teams.
