My name is Tom Creagh, and as a St. Thomas graduate (BA’12) I could not be happier to continue my involvement at STU. My first year as a student in the Aquinas Great Books program led to my pursuit of an honours in Great Ideas, a major in English Literature, and a minor in Philosophy. I lived in residence for all four years of my degree, spending my third year as a Residence Advisor and my fourth as a Residence Coordinator.
STU offers so much academic opportunity through its vast program offering, while maintaining a focused and unique approach to the liberal arts. There are opportunities for involvement through the STU Student’s Union, Residence Life, and dozens of other clubs, societies, and campus groups. With all of the different ways to get involved, small and engaging classes from award winning professors, beautiful campus with buildings only a minute’s walk apart, and the passionate student community always eager to accept new students, you’ll find yourself in an active, engaged, and educated life at STU sooner than you can imagine!
I can’t wait to meet you and discuss my experience at St. Thomas, and the opportunity awaiting you at STU. Please don’t hesitate to contact me by email or phone if you have any questions -- I’m always happy to chat!

“Joining the STU community is like joining a community of friends.”
Welcome and thank you for visiting our site! My name is Michelle Monahan and I’m excited to be a part of the STU admissions team. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Economics and Business and I am excited to be back. I’ll be traveling to schools across the country, meeting potential students and sharing my knowledge and experiences of my time at STU.
In my last year of high school, I really didn’t know where or what I wanted to study. After meeting with two recruiters from STU and learning about the courses, the close-knit community and the really great extra-curricular activities, I knew that STU was the right choice for me. Joining the STU community is like joining a community of friends. Everyone is so friendly, and you’ll find there is something for everyone here.
If you have any questions, just email me, call me directly, or arrange to visit our campus in person. After their first visit, everyone says that the campus is beautiful, and I am sure you will agree!

My name is Amy MacKenzie and I’m an Admissions Counsellor at St. Thomas University.
I grew up in Pictou, a rural town on the north shore of Nova Scotia. Being in a graduating class of about 30, small class sizes and a sense of community were definitely on my check list when I was looking at universities. I wanted to go to a university that also offered a world-class journalism program and one where professors would know my name. St. Thomas University was a clear choice for me because it offered all those things and more.
I graduated from STU with a BA in Journalism and Political Science in 2012. After that, I had no problem finding a job with references from professors who knew me well, my internships with STU’s partner the CBC and a portfolio of articles I wrote for the student newspaper.
After I graduated, I interned as a reporter at the Telegraph-Journal and worked as a full-time reporter at a daily newspaper in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia. Now, I’m excited to have returned to STU as an Admissions Counsellor and I’m looking forward to helping students with one of the biggest decisions they can make: choosing what to do after high school.
If you’ve already chosen St. Thomas or if you’re curious about what we offer, I’m here to help with any questions you might have about studying at and applying to STU. STU is a great choice for post-secondary education with small class sizes, award-winning professors who are experts in their fields and beautiful, inspiring courtyards. Come see it for yourself! You’re sure to fall in love with STU as soon as you step on campus.

"St. Thomas University changed my life."
Hi, my name is Haoyang Liu. I graduated from St. Thomas University as the Valedictorian of Class 2011. As an international student, I enjoyed all the experiences offered at this university.
I came to STU in 2007. It was the first time I left home – Jining, Shandong, China. Although my future was unpredictable, St. Thomas changed everything for me. Faculty, staff and students took care of me like their own family. They offered selfless help whenever I needed. With all the support that St. Thomas provides, I was also able to succeed in class as well as work places, as I worked for three years within the STU Athletic Department.
St. Thomas always works to provide international students with a friendly, welcoming environment and equal opportunities. St. Thomas University changed my life. It provided me with more than a first-class education; it led me to a brighter future.
As an admissions counsellor, I look forward to sharing all my experiences with future STU students from all around the world.
Chris George, Eel River Bar First Nation
Director of Aboriginal Education Initiatives

“Welcome to St. Thomas University!”
My name is Chris George and like many of my colleagues here I fell in love with this campus during my time as a student – I’ve always considered STU my second home.
I’ve started as Director of Aboriginal Education Initiatives and my responsibility is for recruiting First Nation students along with enhancing and creating appropriate support systems and creating new ones. My goal is to help you, my Indigenous brothers and sisters, reach whatever goals you have set for yourself.
St. Thomas has a well established Indigenous presence on campus. The surrounding area is home to many First Nation people and communities. I’ve learned much about my people, not only from the classroom but also from the Wolastoqiyik Nation that welcomes us to their territory. Our neighbours from the Wabanaki Confederacy have always held out a welcoming hand to Indigenous students that attend St. Thomas.
Prior to returning to STU, I was teaching high school in the northern part of our province. I’ve come to understand the struggles that are inherent in the transition from a rural community to a university campus. I made that journey and coming from a tightly knit First Nation community I know it is very common to feel overwhelmed and out of place even in such an amiable setting as St. Thomas. It is my goal to instil that sense of family that I felt during my stay as a student to you the next generation of learners.
I look forward to getting to know you, listen to your story and work with you to make your time here at STU as memorable and rewarding as it has been to me.
Director of Recruitment
“Join us at STU.”
Hi, my name is Ryan Sullivan and I’m the Director of Recruitment at St. Thomas University (STU). I’m here to help you with the transition from high school to university. Whether you are just beginning your university search or you already know that STU is your right choice I’m happy to help with any questions you, or your family have about studying at STU.
St. Thomas has attracted students from more than 80 countries. Our community of learners and leaders spans across Canada and the world in the shape of award-winning authors, entrepreneurs, teachers, Rhodes Scholars, a federal court judge, a prime minister, a premier, an Olympic athlete, and the Speaker of the Senate of Canada.
I’m a graduate of St. Thomas, so I know first-hand the world class experience that awaits you here. We have a beautiful campus, small class sizes, engaged students, and accomplished professors. I invite you to explore our website, visit us on facebook, email, or call me with questions. Better yet come and experience campus for yourself. We’re always happy to host prospective students and their families for a tour of the St. Thomas campus.
