My favourite thing to do in Sackville is...

... visiting all the coffee shops with my friends. Cranewood and Aida’s are definitely two of my favourites! Going for walks through Waterfowl Park to look at the sunset is also a great way to de-stress and see the beautiful scenery Sackville has to offer!

I chose Mount A because...

... I loved the atmosphere on campus and the small class sizes. I felt like Mount A provided me with the opportunity to be more than just a number and that is definitely true. Professors are always willing to listen to your questions and help you if they can.

Advice I would give to incoming students...

... it is okay to be nervous at the beginning! University is a huge transition however everyone is going through the same feeling of uncertainty, so don't be afraid to talk to people in your residence or on campus to make some new friends. Also staying organized and setting a routine from the start is definitely beneficial for when the year gets busy. Overall just enjoy the experience and work hard.

Favourite Mount A memory (so far)...

... would definitely have to be visiting a sunflower field and going to a corn boil in O-week. Also all of the activities planned by my residence, such as visiting an apple orchard where we could pick our own apples.
