StFX renames science complex, renovates athletics hub after receiving $5M gift

April 7, 2022
St Francis Xavier University has announced that it will be renaming its Physical Science Complex to recognize a $5M gift from Agnico Eagle Mines Limited. The gift enabled the university to secure an additional $3.5M in matching funds, and will be used to purchase new lab equipment, update existing technology, renovate the Saputo Centre for Healthy Living, and create a bursary fund. The physical science complex will named the Nasso Family Science Centre in recognition of James Nasso, a former member of StFX’s Board of Governors and Agnico Eagle’s long-time board chairman. “We are tremendously grateful to Agnico Eagle for their support and their generosity,” said StFX President Andy Hakin, “and are excited to put their gift to good use.” StFX (NS)
