Presented by\nAnyone who has ever lived in Halifax can confidently say that it's the best city in Canada.\nWhat about Toronto, Vancouver, and Montreal, you ask? Well, while these cities may be bigger, this in no way means that they are actually better. And the same seems to go for Canadian universities, too. Good things come in small packages... or, as it turns out, campuses!\nMSVU\nIf you're in the midst of finding the perfect place to tackle some postsecondary education, you may want to take a closer look at smaller schools, like Halifax's Mount Saint Vincent University. Between small class sizes, an incredible location, and some serious study-abroad opportunities, MSVU has something for everyone!\nA small campus\nWith small class sizes, a small community, and a small campus, MSVU believes big dreams are best cultivated in a small environment. But don't let its small size fool you, there are huge opportunities to learn, discover, and explore at this Halifax gem!\nView this post on Instagram Such a hideous view... . 📷 @lora.bear . . . #ThisIsMSVU #MSVU #bedfordbasin A post shared by Mount Saint Vincent University (@msvu_halifax) on Sep 16, 2019 at 9:09am PDT\nDorms close to your class\nWhat's the best part of a small campus? Rolling out of bed with only five minutes before class starts and still being able to make it on time! MSVU is monitored 24/7 by on-campus security, and they have the absolute best resident assistants and program coordinators. You’d be hard-pressed to find a more affordable and convenient place to live, learn, and just hang out.\nView this post on Instagram Less than one month until #spring! ⛅🌼 A post shared by Mount Saint Vincent University (@msvu_halifax) on Feb 24, 2015 at 1:10pm PST\nSmall class sizes\nMany universities stick you in a class with hundreds of other students, but at MSVU, you'll have less than 24 classmates in most courses throughout your degree. That’s why Maclean’s magazine recognizes MSVU’s class sizes as among the smallest in Canada.\nView this post on Instagram Welcome back! Happy first day of winter semester, Mystics!

And they really care about your academic and personal success. At MSVU, you'll take part in group discussions and small team projects that will enhance your university experience.\nView this post on Instagram Last-minute midterm prep isn’t as bad with views like this 📚🌅 | 📷: @alibryan_ . . . #thisismsvu #msvu #campuslife A post shared by Mount Saint Vincent University (@msvu_halifax) on Feb 28, 2018 at 12:29pm PST\nPrograms for everyone\nLearning isn't a one-size-fits-all kind of situation. That’s why it’s important to have a variety of programs that offer hands-on experience. From loads of professional programs including Child and Youth Study and Public Relations to Undergraduate programs in Arts, Science, and Education, MSVU has a program for everyone that will give you the education you need to succeed in the career world!\nView this post on Instagram "The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams." - Eleanor Roosevelt .
