Advice I would give to incoming students...

... take your time! Everybody adjusts at a different pace, and you might not feel "at home" right away. But continue taking advantage of the many events and resources available to you and before you know it, you'll be calling Sackville "home"!

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

... I definitely have a better understanding of myself since coming to Mount A. I've been able to find my interests, people who share them, and dream about building an ideal future for myself and the world around me.

My favourite thing to do in Sackville is...

... enjoy a sunny Sunday afternoon "studying" at a café!

I chose Mount A because...

... I felt like coming to Mount Allison would put me in the right place to succeed, and so far that's absolutely been the case! From the time I was applying in grade 12 and contacting admissions staff, to my first year labs and classes, and navigating my degree throughout the years, etc. I've always felt tremendous support from the University that I don't think I would have been able to receive at a larger school.
