After dinner, we walked over to the St. Francis Xavier University campus for an evening walk. The students were returning for the Fall Semester that weekend so there were activities going on. The ivy covered buildings and beautifully landscaped campus was interesting to see.

An older Catholic University with lots of Scottish traditions, it is located in the small Scottish town of Antigonish. Some of the features are a bit outdated, and on my latest visit, I couldn't believe our central religion was to this institute.

We arrived to St.FX with no expectations and we were pleasantly astonished at how magnificient the facility is. It has old world charm blended nicely with new world convenience. In short this school has character that many of todays institutions do not.

This is one of the main focus points of Antigonish. The campus is spread over quite a bit of land. Beautiful buildings with interesting architecture. A nice little Catholic Church. Easy to walk to and walk around. Worth a quick tour.

This university has an excellent reputation in Canada, and its main campus is located very close to the Antigonish city centre. The campus itself is pretty impressive, its red brick buildings giving it an aura of austerity - and it is big, yet peaceful to...More
