Merry Christmas

As we prepare for the Christmas season, we reflect on a year that saw many exciting and wonderful initiatives come to life. From the creation of the President’s Volunteer Team, to hosting the Truth and Reconciliation National Education Roundtable, St. Mary’s has continually advanced towards providing an inclusive campus where students continue to inspire our community by combining academics with a passionate commitment to ethics, social justice, and respect for diversity of opinion and belief. We are thankful to every member of the St. Mary’s community who have helped make this past year one to remember.

The holidays are a wonderful time, filled with friends, family, laughter and cheer. From all of us at St. Mary’s University, we would like to wish everyone a happy and joyous holiday season, a very Merry Christmas and a healthy and prosperous New Year.

Offices will be closed December 22, 2017 at noon (12pm) to January 2, 2018 (inclusive)
