By Suzanne Robicheau | fall 2015

An August reception at Saint Mary’s concluded a four-week study program for students from Beijing Normal University (BNU) in China. The 27 Chinese students, nine from BNU’s Beijing campus and 18 from the Zhuhai campus, were participants in the Cross-Cultural Communications: North American Studies program jointly hosted by Saint Mary’s and Acadia University. “I applaud you for also taking the first steps to become citizens of the world, by leaving the comfort zone of your own culture and lifestyle to explore and learn in a new culture and society here in Halifax,” said Dr. Robert Summerby-Murray, President of Saint Mary’s University. “During this time of discovery, you have also instilled your culture in us, and opened our eyes to interesting thoughts and observations.”

Campus Notes: “I give because I believe in Saint Mary’s University.”
