For the fourth year in a row, the Saint Mary’s Enactus team competed against teams from more than 60 Canadian universities to place in the top four in Canada at the National Enactus Exposition. The Saint Mary’s team also shone as second runner up in the Scotiabank Eco-Living Challenge for an environmental project that diverted almost 2400 lbs. of waste from landfills by upcycling material for refugee families. These achievements are only the latest for members of Saint Mary’s ENACTUS, an international, non-profit organization that sets up campus chapters to develop entrepreneurial students who want to make a difference. Last winter, our team made history by going up against 13 Enactus groups from universities in Atlantic Canada to win first place trophies in every single category at the Enactus regional competition.
