As an example, Tyler is a features editor for the Argosy, the university’s independent student newspaper.
“I’m really happy with my experience at Mount Allison thus far — there are opportunities daily to meet incredible people on a personal level,” says Stuart, who was born in Switzerland and has also lived in the US, Indonesia, and Singapore. “My professors, and many administrators, knew me by name in a very short time.”
Stuart, whose parents are international educators, came to Mount Allison following a conversation with graduate Rob Burroughs (’13).
“I met him (Burroughs) at the Global Issue Network conference in held at Jakarta International School. He was presenting on Grassroots soccer, and shared his experience at Mount Allison,” explains Stuart. “I did a campus tour last year and was set on Mount A. I didn’t apply anywhere else.”
“The experiential learning component, in addition to my classes, is very important,” he says. “Just being here is a great learning experience, it’s completely different from Singapore.”
In addition to the Argosy, Stuart is also involved in Leadership Mount Allison, the University’s signature leadership development program, and intramural soccer.
Stuart plans to pursue a degree in international relations and become an international journalist.
