What our students are saying

Since graduating, I have worked with incredible non-profits in Malawi, Toronto and South Africa, and have just been accepted as a CIDA intern. St. Stephenʼs University gave me the confidence and travel experience, plus the broad knowledge and critical thinking skills, to dive straight into a challenging workplace.

Margaret SiderToronto, ON

My passion for reconciliation was first articulated in my St. Stephenʼs University thesis; this interest has led me to study human security and peacebuilding in conflict and post-conflict countries. I remember with gratitude the impact SSU and the greater SSU community has had on my life.

Angela PowlisonThree Hills, AB

St. Stephenʼs University was an exceptional experience for my undergrad degree. The friends Iʼve made have deeply affected my life, while the travel and course material have begun a lifelong journey in learning. St. Stephenʼs Universityʼs programs, professors and faculty are second to none...

Classmates and professors have profoundly influenced me with their passion for social justice, their appreciation for art in all its forms, and their ability to see beauty where I had forgotten to look for it.

At St. Stephenʼs University, everyday life offers opportunities for a heart-to-heart with professors and classmates about anything from the trivial and nonsensical, to the intensely political and personal, to the vibrantly academic and philosophical, or the enlighteningly spiritual.

Alicia FarnhamWaterville, NB

St. Stephenʼs University proved to be an invaluable foundation for further education. I have since attended three universities and found myself teaching other students because of my interdisciplinary, experience-based education from St. Stephenʼs University.

Luke WilsonCarlisle, ON

These semesters have broadened my perspective of the world while inspiring me to be more intentional in my responsibilities as a global citizen. I was grateful for the open environment at the school in which professors and fellow students alike encourage free-thinking growth, both academically and spiritually.

Cara FitchBurlington, ON

St. Stephen's University’s small size infused my education with a creative freedom and individualized direction that I wouldn’t have been able to get elsewhere. My professors knew me and my passions personally, and worked with me to ensure my degree was both rich and practical— whether through outside-the-box assignments, or through connections and opportunities fostered outside of the classroom... Thanks to SSU, I am in touch with my potential and am well equipped to open doors for myself that align with my unique passions that SSU encouraged me to become familiar with.

Hayley VanIderstineBA 2019

Being at SSU has challenged me to take hold of my education and really squeeze everything I want out of it myself. The community, where I’ve been surrounded by a diverse set of hearts and minds that have continuously pushed me to stretch my own, and the global classroom, where learning really seems to come alive, have really done this for me.
