October 8, 2014

St Francis Xavier University held a ceremony on Sunday to officially open a new residence building, which will be named Riley Hall in recognition of former university President Sean Riley. New StFX President Kent MacDonald said, “it is so fitting this hall is named after someone who has had a deep impact not only in our hearts, but in the look of campus.” Riley, who attended the ceremony, said, “what thrills me about Riley Hall is what is going to happen here this year, and maybe for the next 50 years. I’m more convinced great things will come out of Riley Hall in terms of what the students will do at StFX, and around the world.” StFX News Release
