Advice I would give to incoming students...

Be yourself! Mount A is the place that accepted me with arms outstretched, and though it might seem a little scary at first, it definitely can do the same for you. Embrace everything that makes you different, and show it off to the world!

Favourite Mount A memory (so far)...

During my second year, I was the Co-Social Chair of Bigelow House alongside one of my best friends. We made so many amazing memories that year, but one of my absolute favourites was winning the House Cup for our residence! Our team was so excited that our hard work and perseverance paid off.

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

In high school, I always had my nose in a book, but never really got involved in what my school had to offer - I was nervous to make the first step and put myself out there. Mount A has shown me that leadership and involvement is fulfilling, satisfying, and most importantly, fun! I have become so much more confident as a person, which makes it all the more exciting to be a part of so many amazing groups on campus.

I chose Mount A because...

During my first visit to Mount A, I fell in love with the town of Sackville and everything about it. Once I met the amazing faculty in the Music department, I knew that it was where I belonged.
