Get involved! Mount A has so many clubs and societies on campus for every interest. Getting involved in clubs and societies in my first year helped me meet so many great friends and made my first year so much more fun! I joined Habitat for Humanity in my first year and it was great! Beyond our meetings, we had potlucks and casual hang outs, which helped me make friends from many different programs of study and many different years of study.
The small class sizes were really appealing to me. I wanted to be more than a number at university and at Mount A I’m definitely way more than a number. Small class sizes mean that I get to know my professors and they get to know me, which is so valuable when it comes to receiving research opportunities on campus or having a professor as a reference. Plus, in small classes you’re able to find study buddies super easily!
A couple of friends and I spontaneously deciding to go to PEI for an afternoon. It was completely random and out of the blue, but we had so much fun! We quickly packed some snacks and money then headed on the road. We didn’t even know where we were going in PEI, we just decided as we drove. That was in second year and it’s still one of our best memories. Being in the heart of the Maritimes makes it so easy to go explore other areas in Atlantic Canada!
Walk my dog in Waterfowl Park! It’s so relaxing and a great way to de-stress! There’s always a great photo opportunity as well!
