Favourite Mount A memory (so far)...

...was learning how to ice skate on Swan Pond! I fell lots of times and couldn't actually skate very fast, but coming from a country where it doesn't get below 15C, I think it went pretty well!

I chose Mount A because...

...of the small town feel and small class sizes. Having my professors know me personally has really helped with my learning, I don't just feel like another number in the class but as a person they want to see succeed. Although MTA and Sackville is small, it still has so much to offer and can give you more personable experiences than a large school in a city could.

Advice I would give to incoming students...

...is to try to step out of your comfort zone as much as you can. This will allow you to meet new people, join exciting clubs and societies, and open lots of doors for your time at MTA.

My favourite thing to do in Sackville is...

...to go for walks through Waterfowl Park with my friends and to grab a coffee from Cranewood Bakery.
