Erin Y.

Orientation Leader at Mount Allison University Orientation

Class of 2022

Hometown: Ontario, Canada

Major: Biology

Minor: Biochemistry


My favourite thing to do in Sackville is...

To grab a coffee with friends from a local cafe/bakery before going on a walk through Waterfowl Park.

Favourite Mount A memory (so far)...

That's a hard one! I have to say either being in Garnet and Gold's production of Mary Poppins, or being a part of Orientation Week as a Residence Assistant during my second year. Both environments were so fun and friendly, and both were a great way to meet new people!

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

I am definitely way more confident in myself and in my abilities! The tightly-knit community at Mount Allison really helped me to find myself and really come out of my shell!

Advice I would give to incoming students...

Try new things! Take a class outside of your discipline, join a club you've heard about, try foods you've never seen before (garlic fingers are amazing!). Chances are you'll end up loving a lot of things you wouldn't have ordinarily thought of twice. It's also a really good way to introduce yourself to the Mount Allison and Sackville communities!
