StFX makes it easy and fun for students to lead active lives.

Whether you want to get involved in organized intramural sports and activities or have individual plans for fitness and recreation, StFX has something for you! We view student health holistically, and believe a healthy, active lifestyle prepares you for the rigours of academic study and sets you up for success. 

Indoors or out! 

If you love the outdoors, you will be limited only by your imagination. You can skate, swim, walk the track, take advantage of nearby mountain biking trails, hike the highlands, or stroll one of the many area beaches. Of course, just walking campus and exploring Antigonish is a great way to move, too. Prefer an indoor workout? Our modern fitness facilities will complement your healthy lifestyle, and our athletics programs are second-to-none.
