Talk to Us

Choosing where to attend university is a big step, and we want you to feel confident in whatever decision you make. That’s why our team of recruiters are here to provide you with all of the information you need to decide if StFX is the right fit for you.


We’ve introduced a number of new ways to connect with a recruiter this year. Because of COVID-19, we aren’t able to travel across Canada or the United States to meet as many of you in person as we would have hoped. So, if you’re interested in StFX we encourage you to take advantage of these opportunities:

  1. One-on-one appointments: Book a time to meet individually with a recruiter. They’re here to help, and eager to tell you everything about StFX! Links to book an appointment are found in our recruiter bios (below.)
  2. Request more information: If you’re not ready to chat with a recruiter, click 'learn more' to request more information from StFX on anything from our academic programs to our outstanding community life.

From the very first moment I arrived in Antigonish, I knew that I had made the right decision in choosing StFX University for my Undergraduate degree. As scary as it was to move halfway across the country from my hometown of Ottawa ON, I quickly felt completely at home in Nova Scotia. Living near the ocean allowed me to really take advantage of all the hands-on learning and research opportunities that StFX offers, and I ultimately graduated with a BA in Aquatic Resources, Public Policy and Social Research. I am more than happy to help answer any questions that you may have, and I look forward to helping you discover your very own X-perience!

Making the move from my small town in Vermont to Antigonish, Nova Scotia to attend StFX was a huge decision, but the right one. From the very first day on campus, I was welcomed into the Xaverian community and took advantage of the many opportunities StFX has to offer. I graduated in 2019 with a BA in political science and I am happy to return to StFX to support anyone who is interested in learning more about joining the Xaverian family.

Leaving Ontario for the East Coast was a big leap of faith for me but reflecting back, I do not regret my choice. The moment I stepped onto campus on Welcome Day I knew I had found my new home, from the overwhelming support to the genuine and caring people, I knew StFX was the right choice for my undergraduate degree. I will be graduating with a Bachelor of Arts and Science in Health, majoring in Biomedical Sciences this December. I am more than happy to assist you with any questions or concerns you may have. I look forward to helping you discover all the StFX has to offer you!

Growing up in Antigonish, I always knew I wanted to attend StFX. Throughout my degree, I gained valuable skills, and made lifelong friends- all while working part time on campus. In 2019, I completed my BBA with an Advanced Major in Management & Leadership. My degree opened doors for me that I never knew existed, and I’m thrilled to get to share my experience with you. I’m managing Antigonish & Guysborough Counties, as well as Southern Ontario. If you’re from either of these areas and looking to know more, hit me up!

Since 1999, Canada has been my home. I arrived in this country as an international student from India and went through all the stages that international students typically do. Having been in your shoes, I understand what it takes to be successful in Canada, from applying to schools to settling in.

For most of my life, I have worked in the international education sector, and the most rewarding part of my job is seeing students succeed. I have worked at some of the best institutions in Canada, and I can confidently say that St. Francis Xavier is the perfect place to start your journey in Canada. The campus is inspiring, and the community in Antigonish is close-knit and welcoming.

If you are looking for a quality academic experience in a boutique university where you can develop close relationships with your professors, you have come to the right place. I would be delighted to answer any questions you might have, so please book an appointment with me here.
