Nel P.

Campus Ambassador at Mount Allison University

Class of 2023

Hometown: Northwest Territories, Canada

Major: Environmental Studies

Minor: Geography


My favourite thing to do in Sackville is...

Afternoon solo saunters or with friends in Waterfowl Park, nearby trails, or just exploring the town’s outskirts. I love to end my long days with relaxing walks just to wind down and admire the breathtaking little sceneries and those east coast sunsets that nature offers!

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

I am definitely more confident of who I am now. Coming from a different and far away place came with disparities. Although, I have Mount Allison to thank for allowing me to improve myself both academically and socially.

Advice I would give to incoming students...

Be open to any possibilities. University is a different environment; you might come in with a particular plan in mind. However, don’t let that limit you from exploring other things. University gives you a certain freedom and independence, so make good use of it, and don’t be afraid to put yourself out there.

I chose Mount A because...

Mount Allison reminds me so much of home! Growing up in a small town in the Northwest Territories, having a strong sense of community was important during those harsh winter seasons. When Mount A was brought to my attention, I quickly realized that I would love to go here, and I was not wrong. Both Mount A and Sackville were welcoming, engaging, and displays that close-knit setting that I was looking for.
