A Fine Balance

By Suzanne Robicheau | fall 2015

Lt. Sarah Gray works hard to balance her academic responsibilities as a criminology major with her training obligations as a reservist in the Canadian Forces, but the 4th year student is quick to admit that she couldn’t do it without the support she receives from Saint Mary’s. Thanks to a nomination from
Lt. Gray, the Faculty of Arts received a Canadian Forces Liaison Council Provincial Award for Best Practices in Support to Student Reservists in March 2015 during a special ceremony at Government House. “Saint Mary’s has a reputation for supporting reservists,” says Lt. Gray. “The accommodations provided by the Faculty of Arts have made my time as an undergraduate student and Army Reservist much more manageable and far more enjoyable.” 

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