Campus Ambassador at Mount Allison University
Class of 2021
Hometown: Nova Scotia, Canada
I chose to come to MtA because of its small size and the sense of community I felt on campus. I also wanted to go to a smaller school where I would feel like I was more than just a number, and not feel drowned out in a lecture of 500 people. I asked a lot of alumni about their experience here, and all I got were positive responses and fond memories, which also really pushed me to choose MtA!
Winning the ACAA basketball championship game against our rival team when I was in first year. There was a huge crowd supporting us that drove from Sackville to Truro to come support us and the atmosphere was incredible.
Don't worry about finding your place right away! It may seem like everyone immediately finds their closest friends during orientation week, but in reality it takes many people weeks or even months to find their groove. Be patient and don't put too much pressure on yourself!
I have definitely become more outspoken and confident in myself, from pushing myself to take advantage of the opportunities Mount A has to offer. Things like joining clubs that I didn't know anyone in, and participating in activities that my residence put on in first and second year really made the difference and helped me grow during my time here.
