  Shannon's Headshot

Shannon Robinson
Postgraduate Intern / ELCD Ambassador

Sackville has been Shannon’s home since coming here in 2014 to begin her Science degree, and she is so happy to be able to stay and continue to contribute to the Mount Allison community. While studying Chemistry and Religious Studies, Shannon held both the secretary and treasurer positions for the Mount Allison 2019 Class Executive. One of her favorite things about MtA is that Shannon had the opportunity of studying two very different topics in which she finds passion in. Additionally, to her time spent studying, Shannon assisted in the Chemistry lab, as well as worked as a student manager at Jennings Dining Hall. In her new role with the Office of Experiential Learning and Career Development, Shannon is ready to meet students and help them to discover fulfillment and opportunities for their time spent at Mount Allison University.

 Kirsten Mason

Postgraduate Intern / ELCD Ambassador

Kirsten completed her Bachelor of Arts degree with a double major in Anthropology and Classics in May 2019, and is currently balancing courses in Greek and Latin while she works as an ELCS ambassador. She has been a part of an excavation in Pompeii called the "Venus Pompeiana Project", and will be going back for a third time this year. Last summer, Kirsten did an internship through the EXPL Office at the New Brunswick Museum, and did research on classical artifacts. Pursuing her goal of becoming a Classical Archaeologist, Kirsten is working as a research assistant in the Modern Languages Department and the Classics Department, and in the past was a part of the Anthropology Department. The thing that Kirsten loves about MtA is that it is small, and that the faculty are extremely supportive. Being a part of the Office of Experiential Learning and Career Development means that she gets to be a part of the student support services which she found so helpful during her time here.
