Hometown: New Brunswick, Canada
...Taking a study break to go get coffee or food with my friends! Sackville has so many wonderful cafes and restaurants to offer. My personal favourite is Downtown Diner! They have the best sushi!! :)
...When I came for my first tour, I immediately fell in love with Mount A's beautiful campus and the tight knit town of Sackville. Coming from a small town myself, I love that no matter where you go on campus, you're guaranteed to see a familiar face! Everyone is so welcoming and you get the opportunity to meet lots of different people through classes, clubs and events. Mount A and the community of Sackville has become my second home and I wouldn't have it any other way!
...Make time for yourself! The first few weeks can seem really intimidating and stressful, but just remember that everyone is in the same boat and it's normal to feel overwhelmed! It's important to take some time to relax and do what makes you feel comfortable. Whether its exercising, writing in a journal, watching TV or simply taking a nap, self care is always important!
...Since coming to Mount A I have become much more self-confident! Opportunities such as getting involved with various clubs and societies, as well as meeting new people within my classes, are all experiences that have allowed me to feel comfortable in trying new and different things!
