My favourite thing to do in Sackville is...

Treating myself to a drink from Aida’s and walking around town in the shops and through Waterfowl on a nice day! I also love going on walks to explore— my second year and I’m still finding new corners of Sackville to love!

I chose Mount A because...

The small campus allows me to feel comfortable while transitioning out of a small rural area to larger university life. Additionally, I saw that I would be able to explore my interests and learn in a variety of different areas, all while being flexible with my degree—I was able to try out a variety of different things without sacrificing anything and it helped me select the perfect degree for my passions!

Advice I would give to incoming students...

A piece of advice I would give to incoming students is that you don’t have to have it all figured out from the get-go— things are subject to change! Don’t limit yourself to the first group of people you meet or the first major you choose, everyone is on their own path and that path is likely going to change a lot in the next four years and that’s okay! Embrace the uncertainty and use this opportunity to explore yourself and your interests because you never know what you might find.

Favourite Mount A memory (so far)...

probably the dance battle that takes place during orientation week! It really sets the tone for the school year and what to expect from Mount Allison. I’ve had so many positive memories at Mount A already and I can’t wait to see what’s to come!
