Advice I would give to incoming students...

... don't expect to get the hang of things right away. You will see some people adapt to university life within the first few days of being there, and others it takes a few months, maybe even a semester-- don't rush, you will figure it out!

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

... since coming to Mt A I have definitely become more passionate about the things I believe in, partly because I have found other people that are passionate about the same things! Mt A is a safe place to learn and grow and, most importantly, be yourself!

I chose Mount A because...

it is small and isn't too far from home. The campus is so beautiful and the community, including Sackville as a whole, is so welcoming.

My favourite thing to do in Sackville is...

go to the Cackling Goose, a gluten free & vegan bakery in downtown Sackville!!! Did you know it takes nearly 2,000 gallons of water to produce one pound of beef!? Only 25 gallons of water are required to grow 1 pound of wheat!!

I'm passionate about...

Environmental Sustainability Equality Education Political Activism Environmental Justice

I'm involved with...
