I chose Mount A for two main reasons: the amazing programs here, and the distance from my hometown (far enough to feel like I am on my own, and close enough to easily visit)!
My favourite Mount A memory so far has got to be my first week back on campus after spending a semester abroad. It was SO nice to come back and realize that so many people I rarely speak to actually noticed I was gone and were happy to see me back on campus! I remember my roommate at the time asking me if I felt like a celebrity because every second person on campus would say "Omg Tori! You're back!" It really reminded me of the amazing benefits of a small school like Mount A, and the tight-knit community we have here.
My major piece of advice for incoming students is to try to talk to someone new at least once a week! Whether this be a prof or someone in your residence you've only briefly met before, everyone at Mount A is so kind and so interesting and there is so much you can learn from every single person here!
Find new places to watch the sun set! Lately I've been loving the way the sun sets over the buildings on bridge street; the way all the brick turns into this beautiful golden colour when the sun is setting is AMAZING!
