Advice I would give to incoming students...

... Get involved. There are so many different opportunities that allow you to get involved in the university and community. Take advantage of the clubs, organizations, and sports teams that will help you make new friends, gain new skills, and become more connected to the university. Just make sure not to overload yourself by signing up for too many.

I chose Mount A because...

... l love how inclusive Mount Allison is. The welcoming environment makes you feel at home and comfortable with everyone you come in contact with. The small university allowed me to make connections with my professors and lab instructors, who have helped guide me in my two years here. At a larger university, I would not have been exposed to as many opportunities and experiences as I have been at Mount A.

My favourite thing to do in Sackville is...

... Hanging out with my friends at the local coffee shops, sporting events, university or community activities, and even studying together at the library or Gracie's. Whenever I'm with them, I know I'm going to enjoy myself and be making memories. Sometimes these adventures are planned, some are spontaneous, but all help me relax and make the most of my time at Mount A.

How have I changed since coming to Mount A...

... I am more comfortable with myself and have become independent. I have learned who I am and who I want to become in the future, gaining confidence in myself. I have been exposed to opportunities and people that have helped me grow as a person and have matured my choices over the past two years.
