On behalf of the entire Mount Allison community, I am delighted to have this opportunity to welcome you and to wish you a wonderful Orientation. This orientation time is a terrific opportunity to familiarize yourselves with this institution – its people, its places, its programs, and all of its possibilities. I hope that you can take every opportunity that the Orientation Committee has provided for you. This experience can be a solid and useful basis for success this year and in coming years at Mount Allison. I look forward to meeting you all during this period and at future events. Have a great Orientation, and a wonderful year. Good luck, and do not hesitate to contact me – even if it’s just for a good chat or to let me know how things are going.

A message from Niki Mina, Orientation Chair
Hey there Mounties! My name is Niki Mina and I am your University Orientation Chair! I am super excited to welcome you all to the Mount Allison community. I am a fourth-year student from New Hampshire in the United States (but I am also originally from Toronto, Ontario so I am well acquainted with the Toronto area as well), studying Commerce and Psychology. This summer, I will be working alongside the Department of Student Life and the Mount Allison Students Union (MASU) to plan Orientation Week. The first week that you spend here at Mount Allison is memorable and will be the best week that you have here; it is still my favourite week that I’ve ever had since arriving! Embarking on a new adventure can create many different emotions and feelings, and that is why we will try our best to make sure that you have the time of your life, not only for this first week but throughout all your years here at Mount Allison! This week plays an important role in making many new friends, exploring the small and cute town of Sackville, as well as helping to make your adjustment to a new chapter in your life as easy as possible! Orientation Week includes a variety of different activities to get you better acquainted with fellow students, faculty and staff of Mount Allison, and the town of Sackville. I have put together, and am working alongside, a great team of upper year students who will make sure that you have an amazing experience during Orientation Week! Move In Day and Orientation Week will come quickly and the Orientation Committee, Orientation Crew, and I are super excited to meet you!! Be ready to have the week of a lifetime, create many memories that will last forever, and make friends that will make your university experience a special one! Only a few more months until you are here and part of the Mountie family that we are all proud to be a part of! If you have any questions, do not hesitate to email me at email@example.com! Have a great summer and get excited!
