“Stanstead College is one huge opportunity. You have the opportunity to come to this small town, with a small school, and be surrounded by so many new things. If you come here without knowing anybody, then you’re surrounded by over 250 new faces. If you haven’t played a sport before, then you have the chance to try three. If you haven’t traveled to New York City, Toronto, Quebec City, or even Africa, then Stanstead gives you the opportunity. And remember: everyone and everything at Stanstead is here to help you succeed.”
