Hundreds of top high school students descended on the Saint Mary's campus to get a taste of life at university.

The one-day Provincial Advanced Placement Conference was for students enrolled in AP courses in Nova Scotia high schools.

Students were introduced to the three faculties at Saint Mary's: Arts, Commerce (Sobey School of Business) and Science. Afterwards, students attended workshops focused on learning, curiosity and student leadership. Other sessions included introductions to university-level courses such as Astronomy, Biology, Criminology, Religious Studies, Sociology, Geology and Computer Programming.
