Orientation Leader at Mount Allison University Orientation
Class of 2022
Hometown: New Brunswick, Canada
Coming from a small town, been through the francophone school system and not knowing anyone upon my arrival at Mount A, I feel like I have grown both socially and mentally by stepping out of my comfort zone. I have learned what works for me academically and know my limits. I also have a greater awareness about social issues which will help me later on in my future career as a teacher.
Orientation Week! As an RA last fall, I was able to experience it for a second time and had as much fun as the first time! Although it felt overwhelming at times, I attended as many activities as I could and did not hesitate to take breaks as needed.
Head down to Downtown Sackville and explore the cute little cafes and shops with friends! It is so easy to get overwhelmed with school work, so to wind down I like to go for a little walk downtown, grab a snack and afterwards hit the books! The cafes downtown are also a good place to study other than the lib or the student centre, if ever you need a change of scenery and study snacks!
Don't be shy to reach out and inform yourself about all the services offered to students at Mount A, and don't be afraid to ask for help when needed! Whether it be academic assistance, disability services or student wellness, there are many people that care about your well being and want you to succeed throughout your journey at Mount A. Also, get involved in as many clubs and activities, because this is the best way to discover yourself.
