History of Economics Annual Meeting 2012
Brock is in St. Catharines, Ont , a city of about 130,000 people. It's located in the Niagara Region, which includes Niagara Falls and Niagara-on-the-Lake, Canada's first capital. Our campus is located in the Niagara Escarpment, which is a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, and is full of green space and walking trails. More than 12 million visitors come to Niagara every year.
Our campus is small and interconnected. You could walk from one end of campus to the other in less than 10 minutes. The focal point is the Schmon Tower, which stands 13 stories high atop the Niagara Escarpment, which means it can be seen from nearly anywhere in St. Catharines.
