James Kwan ('18)
Biochemistry and aviation student James Kwan of Lethbridge, AB says there was no way he wasn’t applying to Mount Allison University.

“Mount Allison has been ranked #1 for so many years in a row, making it impossible for me not to apply,” he says. “In addition, moving to the other side of Canada and living on the East Coast has always been something that I'd wanted to do. In the end, it was just the right fit.”

A graduate of Lethbridge Collegiate Institute, Kwan is the recipient of a Bell Family Achievement Award, one of the University’s most prestigious entrance awards.

In addition to his studies, Kwan is also a varsity badminton player, and is involved in Global Brigades, SMILE (Sensory Motor Instructional Leadership Experience), and Right to Play. He’s also competed internationally in alpine skiing, nationally in volleyball, and provincially in a handful of other sports.
