St. Thomas More College

St. Thomas More College

Since 1936, St. Thomas More College has been helping students discover more about the world in which they live. We don’t simply teach classes, we assist our students as they become tomorrow’s leaders.

Located in the beautiful Canadian Prairies, St. Thomas More College is proud to be a Catholic, liberal arts college, federated with the University of Saskatchewan.

St. Thomas More College is a CATHOLIC college.

Founded by the Basilian Fathers in 1936, STM is the leading Catholic college in Western Canada. Students do not have to be Catholic to join STM or take STM classes. We don’t force religion on anybody, but we do believe it is important for our students to have an opportunity to integrate faith into their university careers. STM is the heart of Catholic community at the University of Saskatchewan, and the campus ministry team is vital to the development of the college community. STM is home to a beautiful chapel where Roman Catholic Mass is celebrated.

St. Thomas More College is a LIBERAL ARTS college.

While STM students may choose any major offered by the College of Arts and Sciences at the U of S, our teaching focus is the Liberal Arts. We offer classes in the humanities and social sciences. At some point in your degree, you will take a liberal arts class, or perhaps, many liberal arts classes, even if you are majoring in a natural science discipline or in a pre-professional program. Refer to our course calendar for a list of classes offered by the college.

St. Thomas More College is FEDERATED with the University of Saskatchewan.

While we maintain our own administration and receive our own provincial grants, we are academically integrated with the University of Saskatchewan. That means:

  • We offer on-campus U of S credit classes that students take as part of their U of S degrees.
  • Any on-campus student may take our classes, which are taught by STM professors.
  • STM professors are fully certified: they are members of the faculty of the College of Arts & Science and of University Council.
  • Any on-campus Arts and Science student may register through STM. (Such a student will become a self-identified STM student, but will still be an Arts & Science student at the U of S.)

History

The origins of St. Thomas More College go back to 1913 when Saskatoon Catholics first requested a Catholic college for the newly-established University of Saskatchewan. For a number of reasons, nothing came of the request until April 1926 when a group of Saskatoon Catholic laity formed a group called the Newman Society to work actively for the establishment of such a college. By September of that year, arrangements were in place for Fr. Dr. Basil Markle from the Archdiocese of Toronto to teach Scholastic Philosophy at the University of Saskatchewan and to serve as chaplain for the Catholic students. Newman Hall (“the white house”) was built in 1927 and the student Newman Club was formed in the fall of 1928.

In 1936, the long-awaited college was established by the Basilian Fathers of Toronto as a Catholic liberal arts college in federation with the University of Saskatchewan. At that time, the college was placed under the patronage of St. Thomas More, who had been canonized in 1935. The new college’s relationship with the university was modeled on that of St. Michael’s College at the University of Toronto. In its first year, 1936-37, St. Thomas More College had a teaching faculty of four, and a grand total of 39 students.

From 1937 until the mid-1960s, the faculty of the college was made up entirely of Basilian Fathers. With the continuing growth of the student body and the addition of a number of lay faculty, changes in the administrative structures and an enlargement of the college corporation were called for and these changes were introduced in 1971.

The present stone building was constructed in three stages between 1954 and 1969 and includes a chapel, library, cafeteria, auditorium, offices, classrooms and an art gallery. St. Thomas More College’s chapel is the home of a number of fine works of original art, including stained glass windows by Robert Rambusch and murals by Lionel Thomas and William Kurelek.

Student Housing

St. Thomas More College owns and operates a great co-ed student residence called Ogle Hall. Overlooking the South Saskatchewan River, Ogle Hall provides an excellent atmosphere for living, studying and experiencing community during the university years.

Located on the U of S campus, Ogle Hall is a smaller residence (50 spaces) that offers students a quiet place in which to live, as well as close proximity to the academic, social, recreational and cultural facilities and activities of both St. Thomas More College and the university.

Ogle Hall Features:

  • first-year students get private rooms
  • all Ogle Hall residents get free membership in the Newman Centre Catholic student club
  • all rooms have high speed internet access included in residence fees
  • non-smoking, non-drinking facility
  • big screen t.v. in the lounge area

  • The Knights of Columbus – a Catholic, fraternal organization, encourages Catholic men—eighteen and older—to take part in charity, community service, and the protection of human dignity by joining the college council at STM. The council holds monthly meetings, arranges social events for members, and participates in community service activities.
  • Newman Centre is the Catholic club on campus—helps fulfill the social and spiritual needs of its members through coffeehouses, retreats, ecumenical suppers, dances, and other various events. Everyone is welcome, regardless of religious affiliation.

  • STM Pre-Education Club – If you are considering a career in education this group will allow you to get reliable advice on how to get into the college, how to be successful, and how to find employment upon graduation.  It also gives you the opportunity to network with other potential teachers and share your questions or concerns.
  • STM Pre-Law Club is designed for STM students who are planning on applying to the College of Law.  The club is a portal for students to get information about admission into the College of Law as well as information about Law careers.
  • St. Thomas More College Students’ Union is made up of an Executive and members-at-large, represents STM students and their views to the college and the greater campus community. All STM students are welcome to become involved, attend social functions, and access the free exam file (where previously used exams are stored).

Campus Ministry

The mission of Campus Ministry at St. Thomas More College is to serve and bear witness to the Gospel of Jesus Christ by means of:

  • Presence to the College and University,
  • Development of faith community,
  • Celebration of word and sacrament,
  • Empowerment to service, especially to the poor and marginalized.

Within the College, the team partners with the Newman Centre, STMSU, Development and Peace Just Youth Group, Knights of Columbus, as well as relating to the St. Thomas More Worshipping Community. STM Campus Ministry maintains strong professional connections with the Ukrainian Catholic Campus Ministry at Sheptytsky Institute, Canadian Catholic Campus Ministry (CCCM) and the Canadian Catholic Students’ Association (CCSA). Reporting directly to the President of the College, the Campus Ministry Team is also accountable to the Roman Catholic Bishop of Saskatoon for its pastoral activities.

Shannon Library

The collection of the Shannon Library at St. Thomas More College is designed to support undergraduate classes taught at the College. As such, it is an excellent source for materials in many disciplines in the Arts and Sciences, including English (especially Shakespeare, Chaucer and Victorian literature), History, Philosophy, Psychology, Religious Studies, Sociology, French (Canadiana), and Economics.

The collection includes 52,000 volumes, and 150 journals and magazines; most of these materials are not duplicated in the University Library. The STM Library catalogue is fully integrated with the U of S Library, and is available online.

Students, faculty, staff, and members of the public are welcome to use the Shannon Library.  See the Services section for more information on borrowing policies. The students working at the Circulation desk, and the Director, the Assistant, and the Technician in the STM Library office are pleased to assist library users.

St. Thomas University

St. Thomas University

Established nearly a century ago, St. Thomas is the ideal liberal arts institution, consistently ranked as one of the top undergraduate universities in Canada. Teaching is the highest institutional priority, and professors are directly engaged in challenging programmes that foster each student’s intellectual development.

The cornerstone four-year Bachelor of Arts programme has more than 30 academic disciplines. Students explore various disciplines during their first two years of study, allowing them to broaden their interests before selecting an honours program or major. Small class sizes (no class is larger than 60, with an average class size of 30) encourage students to participate in discussions with peers and professors.

St. Thomas University is unique in Canada: our sole focus is liberal arts education. We think it is the best way to prepare you for a life as a leader, thinker, and global citizen. Liberal arts education gives you the ability to find solutions to problems, make independent decisions, and act on them. It teaches you how to argue logically, write clearly, and master new ways of thinking. It means gaining skills in communication, critical thinking and open-mindedness.

At St. Thomas, you can expect small classes, engaged classmates, and teachers second-to-none. Choose from among more than 30 academic disciplines: from traditional fields like Philosophy, History and Languages, to innovative programmes in Journalism, Human Rights, Criminology, Environment and Society, and Native Studies.

Wherever you want to go, St. Thomas will help you get there.

You’ll develop your interests, discover your passions, learn the skills and subjects you need, and see a different point of view. It all starts with the freedom to think for yourself.

History

The origin of St. Thomas University dates back to 1910. At that time, the Most Reverend Thomas F. Barry, Bishop of Chatham, invited the Basilian Fathers of Toronto to assume charge of an institution in Chatham, New Brunswick, providing education for boys at the secondary and junior college levels. The institution was called St. Thomas College.

The Basilian Fathers remained at St. Thomas until 1923. That year the school was placed under the direction of the clergy of the Diocese of Chatham. In 1938, the Diocese of Chatham became the Diocese of Bathurst. In 1959, a section of Northumberland County, including within its territorial limits St. Thomas College, was transferred from the Diocese of Bathurst to the Diocese of Saint John.

Volunteerism, Service & Social Justice

St. Thomas’ students are devoted to justice and service, as the extraordinary number of student service organizations on campus goes to show. We don’t just learn about the world’s problems in class, we act to bring about change in our community.

Campus Diversity

We want you to feel at home at St. Thomas, no matter where you come from, regardless of race, gender, or sexual orientation. You’ll be able to find a student group on campus where you will feel supported, included, and empowered to share your experiences and culture with friends.

Campus Ministry

At St. Thomas, people of all faiths are welcomed and invited to participate fully in the community. If you are interested in becoming more involved in your faith, join our active Campus Ministry team or one of several other campus groups devoted to faith. Whatever your religious affiliation, feel free to spend some time in the beautiful St. Thomas chapel, or to get involved with the social justice initiatives of Campus Ministry.

Jobs on Campus

Short on cash? The JOBS programme provides a centralized listing of the many jobs available on campus, and the Career Counselling Centre at UNB is also available to St. Thomas students.

Symbols of Community

T-Pins and T-Rings are treasured reminders of membership in the STU family. On the eve of the first day of classes, all first-year students gather in the courtyard. Our president welcomes the new students to the academic world, presenting each with a T-Pin. Donning academic robes is a tradition that dates back centuries, and after four years at St. Thomas, our students join the tradition, becoming graduates and donning their own black gowns and hood. On the Feast of St. Thomas Aquinas, the patron saint of all Catholic universities and students, fourth-year students earn the coveted T-Ring – a nationally recognized symbol that unites our graduates as they go their separate ways.

Home of the Tommies

Sports fans and athletes alike come together to cheer on the Tommies-men’s and women’s hockey, soccer, volleyball, rugby and basketball teams – as they battle for pride of place in league play. Join the epic Battle of the Hill, when the Tommies play against our nearest rival, UNB. If you’re not a player, cheer your team to victory!

The St. Thomas men’s and women’s ice hockey teams compete in Atlantic University Sport (AUS) and the Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS). Basketball (M&W), soccer (M&W), and volleyball (M&W) compete in the Atlantic Colleges Athletic Association (ACAA) and the Canadian Colleges Athletic Association (CCAA). Rugby (M&W) compete in the an organized club league.

Intramurals

If you want to play for fun, join an intramural league: St. Thomas partners with UNB for an intramural sports programme that attracts over 3,000 participants each year.

Fitness

The J. B. O’Keefe Fitness Centre is a 14,000 square foot state-of-the-art gymnasium. As a student, you will have free access to cardio and weight training equipment, basketball and squash courts, as well as to UNB’s facilities: three more gyms, a pool, tennis courts, and outdoor fields. Fitness classes offered at both UNB and St. Thomas will also be open to you.

Theatre

St. Thomas is home to the Black Box Theatre, an intimate playing space where Theatre St. Thomas (TST) performs both classics and experimental theatre. Auditions for roles onstage and off are open to all, and recent productions have included Schwartz’s Godspell, Stoppard’s Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Dead, and Auburn’s Proof.

Steeds

St. Thomas Early English Drama Society performs one show annually, focusing on early Drama. Past productions have included Marlowe’s Dr. Faustus and Aristophanes’ Lysistrata.

Music

Visual Arts

The King’s University College

The King’s University College

King’s University College is a Christian university college committed to academic excellence, development of the whole person, high employment potential, and vibrant student life. But what is Christian university education?

Is King’s a Bible College? No. A seminary? Again, no. King’s University College offers fully accredited bachelor degrees in the arts and sciences from a Christian perspective. At King’s, the curriculum begins, not with a desire to prove the existence of God, but with the conviction that God exists. All disciplines fall under the sovereignty of God, whether science, art, history or philosophy. Knowledge enhances faith, and faith enhances knowledge.

Additionally, at King’s the curriculum is intentionally interdisciplinary, meaning that all fields work together and nothing is studied in isolation. This stems from the belief that this reflects the Creator’s design. Activities inside and outside the classroom are designed to encourage students to examine real world issues from a Christian perspective and to become agents of social transformation.

History

Located in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, The King’s University College is a member of the Council for Christian Colleges & Universities (CCCU) and of the Association of Universities and Colleges in Canada (AUCC). The King’s degrees are accredited under the Post-Secondary Learning Act of Alberta.

Currently The King’s University College has over 630 students enrolled in Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Music, Bachelor of Commerce and Bachelor of Education programs. The King’s accepts academically qualified students of all faiths into its programs. Thanks to the University College’s size, classes are relatively small and students are able to interact on a personal level with professors. Students also have the opportunity to participate in faculty research projects. In recent years, The King’s commitment to a culture of research has resulted in a number of student presentations at national and international academic conferences, as well as student-authored academic publications.

The King’s has an active intercollegiate athletics program, competing in the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference in men’s and women’s basketball, volleyball and outdoor soccer. Club sports include hockey and indoor soccer.

Located in Alberta’s dynamic capital city, just minutes from downtown Edmonton, The King’s 21,000 m2 modern campus occupies over eight hectares. Facilities include: 34 classrooms, eight science labs, three computer labs, a greenhouse, fine arts studios, a performance hall with pipe organ, 1,200 m2 library, 900 m2 gymnasium, spacious cafeteria, student activity centre, drama space, bookstore, conference rooms, atrium assembly space, outdoor sports fields, and two student residences.

The King’s attracts students of all ages from a variety of backgrounds. Its educational philosophy is rooted in the historic Christian faith and its teaching and research are influenced by a Christian worldview. The University College stresses academic excellence within a caring environment.

The Simona Maaskant Library

Simona Maaskant, the librarian between 1981 and 1998, provided extraordinary leadership in building the library into a beautiful and functional resource for students, faculty and staff. Simona passed away on April 26, 1998 from cancer. She will be remembered by the community at King’s for her cheerful personality, her faithful friendship and her generous and gentle spirit.

The Simona Maaskant Library on The King’s University College campus features over 100,000 books, periodicals, CD-ROMs and other material available on site, and over 5 million items are available through the NEOS Consortium.
