Favourite Mount A memory (so far)...

All of them!! BUT Harper Lip Sync is in my top 5... Sackville Thanksgiving was super fun too!! And of course study sessions in the lib <3

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

I think the biggest way that I've changed since coming to MtA is that I am a way more independent and confident person than I was before starting university. Coming from Toronto not knowing anyone it was definitely a big adjustment but I quickly learned the ropes of university life and settled in quickly. MtA now feels like a second home to me and so many other students and I couldn't imagine going anywhere else!

Advice I would give to incoming students...

Don't be afraid to step out of your comfort zone! Whether that's joining a new club, a team, or just going to meal hall on your own, the MtA community is so loving and supportive that your risks are almost always definitely worth it! + try and buy as many textbooks as you can second hand:)

My favourite thing to do in Sackville is...

My favourite thing to do was to go to Black Duck (RIP) but I love just walking around campus and in town! Sackville is a beautiful town especially in the fall and such a close community so you're bound to see a friendly face:)
