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!

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!

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.

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

I don’t think it’s that I’ve necessarily changed since coming to Mount Allison, but more so that I’ve come into my own. Mount Allison has allowed me to flourish and embrace the things that make me stand out and I feel more like myself. I’ve become a lot more intentional with how I spend my time, because you come to realize that your time is your own and you are in charge of how you spend it. Within that, I’ve been able to prioritize the things that make me happy, and not bother with the things that don’t.
