Marianopolis College is a private English-language college founded in 1908 and located in Westmount near downtown Montreal. The campus is compact and surrounded by vegetation, and has beautiful buildings dating back to the early 20th century.

Educating nearly 2,000 students, Marianopolis is a small college that offers pre-university programs. Students can choose from arts and science, liberal arts, social science, literature and communications, and a dual DCS combining music with other programs at the school.

Marianopolis holds breaks—called activity periods—two afternoons a week. Students have the chance to attend guest lectures, compete in intramural sports and attend club events and other extracurricular activities. The college has intercollegiate teams that play basketball, soccer, volleyball and rugby.

A not-so-well-kept secret on the Marianopolis campus is Wayne’s World. Tucked away in the basement, the store sells everything from calculators to candy.
