St. Francis Xavier University offers what so many of Canada’s top students are seeking: a high quality education, focused principally on the undergraduate, in a vibrant residential setting. Recognized as one of the finest schools in Canada, StFX is meeting the needs of today’s undergraduates through outstanding teaching, exceptional hands-on research experiences, the very best in a residential community, and unique opportunities to make a contribution to communities at home and abroad.
Nearly 20 per cent of students participate in course-based or immersion experiences, getting outside the classroom to work in communities, locally or further afield. A well-known tradition at StFX is handing out X-rings (a rectangular gold ring with a large black X in the middle) to graduating students. The campus is known for its Ivy League-style architecture, limestone residences and pedestrian-friendly layout.
