Hello! My name is Emma and I enjoy boardgames, hanging out with my hedgehog and spending time with friends! Aside from meeting some of my best friends, my favourite part of my Orientation was Mountie Mania because it was where I felt like I really bonded with my residence for the first time.
Vice-President, Academic Affairs
Program: Philosophy, Politics, and Economics (PPE) Honours and Canadian Studies
Hometown: Moncton, NB
Hello! I’m Noah, this year’s Vice-President Academic Affairs of the MASU. I enjoy Tim Hortons (budget for $2500 per annum), structure, the bucket seats on third floor STUD, and a well-placed, effective comma. What I enjoy about Mount Allison is that it is not particularly path dependent for its students. Rather, students are able to tailor their experience to what they want for themselves. It’s a buffet really. Orientation is the appetizer section – lots of tasty things for sure.
My advice: don’t fill up on the starches too much – that’s how they get you. Go for the meats, which I interpret to be academics. Also, don’t be afraid to add a touch of Frank’s Red Hot.
Vice-President, Student Life
Hometown: Quispamsis, NB
Hi everyone! Welcome to Mount Allison! My name is Elise, and I’m from Quispamsis, New Brunswick. This year, I am excited to the Vice President Student Life on the Mount Allison Students’ Union! I am a fourth year student doing my honours in psychology. Throughout my time here, I have worked as a calculus and biochemistry TA and tutor, as well as an executive member of Habitat for Humanity, Health Care Outreach, Rotaract, and the Student Refugee Program. Starting at a new school can be scary and lonely, but try to take it all in as best you can. Identify some clubs, societies, teams, or initiatives that you might be interested in getting involved with. Mount Allison has an immense amount to offer, both within and outside of the classroom. This is a special place, which is now special-er because you’re here! If you have ANY questions about MtA, or how to get involved on campus, don’t hesitate to stop by the MASU office, or email me at email@example.com
Vice-President, External Affairs
Hometown: Fredericton, NB
I have flaws. What are they? Oh, I don't know. I sing in the shower. Sometimes I spend too much time volunteering. Occasionally I'll spend a whole day rewatching The Office and then use quotes from it to communicate. So, sue me... No, don't sue me. That is the opposite of the point that I'm trying to make. Basically all you need to know about me is that I love The Office and the rest you can find out by bringing up The Office in a conversation.
Program: Biology and French
Hometown: Truro, NS
Hi, I’m Lauren! I’m the Vice-President Communications for the MASU this year. I was born and raised in Truro, Nova Scotia. While at Mt.A I am studying Biology and French. I enjoy sports, specifically volleyball, swimming and skiing, and I love to cook. Now that all the boring introduction stuff is out of the way….. who am I really? I am the only person in the world who will laugh at ANYTHING (which sometimes gets me in trouble). I believe life is too short to be serious all the time, so if you can’t laugh at yourself… call me… I’ll do it for you :P The best piece of advice I can give to you is, if no one is against you, you are doing something very boring. Work hard for what you believe in, and don’t forget to have fun while doing it.
Vice-President, Finance & Operations

Hometown: Victoria, BC
Hello and welcome to MTA!
My name is Kevin and I am excited to get to know you all over the course of the academic year. I am from Victoria B.C. and moved across the country to join the MTA community three years ago. I am going into my fourth year pursuing a Bachelor of Commerce with a double minor in Economics and History. On my first flight to MTA three years ago a girl on the plane struck up a conversation with me. It turns out she had been on the executive of the residence I was going to live in (Windsor) and had just moved off campus. She told me all about residence life at MTA and really helped me feel more confident about moving somewhere I had never even visited. When I was in second year (and on residence executive) she came up to me in O-Week and asked if I remembered her. She was now on the MASU Executive and the Vice President of Communications. We quickly became friends and kept in touch over the year. The next year she became MASU President and is a big reason I am now part of the MASU. I think this story represents what is so incredible about MTA. There are amazing people everywhere and they will influence your life in some of the best ways you could never have imagined. You’ll never know when you meet them and only realize how profound their impact was in retrospect. Even better, you will be that amazing person to others without even realizing it. We’re all so excited to have you as part of the MTA community. Take full advantage of this incredibly unique time in your life. I am always happy to meet new people so please don’t hesitate to introduce yourself if you see me on campus.
Most importantly, don’t forget to smile.
