“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.

Admissions and Recruitment Officer or 506.452.0562

"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.
