Sam Magee ('15)
Commerce student Sam Magee of Moncton, NB has made the most of opportunities inside and outside the classroom during his time at Mount Allison.

Magee, who is minoring in economics, is involved in a diverse array of extracurricular activities.

He is on the executive for the Commerce Society, volunteers with Habitat for Humanity, and in 2014 was the producer of the ASCARS — the Mount Allison Students’ Union’s annual awards show celebrating student life and student and community achievements.

Magee also exercises his creativity by taking part in drama with the Motyer-Fancy Theatre.

In third year he and four other Commerce students travelled to Toronto to take part in a case competition called the Battle on Bay Street. Mount Allison was the only school outside of Ontario to participate in the competition.

“It gave us a chance to network with industry professionals and talk to other students about how the business program was carried out at their schools,” he says. “It makes a big difference to see what we are studying applied in the real world.”

Magee is planning to pursue a career in investment banking after graduation.

“What I like most about the Commerce program at Mount Allison is the small class sizes,” he says. “Talking to professors on a first-name basis and having them know who you are makes a big difference. It also helps that we have professors who are industry professionals.”
