Campus Ambassador at Mount Allison University
Class of 2022
Hometown: Nova Scotia, Canada
I’ve become a lot more social, confident and accepting of myself since coming to Mount Allison. Being involved at the school has allowed me to make friends in so many programs, there’s always someone to wave at on my walks to class.
After doing my first year at a large university, I transferred to Mount Allison because I wanted a smaller, closer-knit campus. I valued having more one-on-one time with faculty and being able to be more involved in the school and community.
I was a part of Garnet and Gold’s 2020 production of Mary Poppins. It was my first year here since I’d transferred universities, so I was hesitant to join but I made so many new friends during the process.
Be sure you’re balancing academics with personal time. It’s important to put your mental health first; give yourself breaks, participate in events, get involved with clubs/societies and spend time with your friends so that you can have a balanced life and put your best foot forward for your academics.
