10 Co-Curricular Life

10.1 The Student Union

The Student Union of Mount Allison is governed by the Students' Administrative Council (SAC). This a body of elected and appointed persons who represent, organize, and plan for the interests of the students. However, the wider Mount Allison community benefits from many of the activities the SAC pursues.

The SAC represents the students through council with representatives from on and off campus, and the six member executive. There are also many other positions, appointed through the SAC, that allow any student the opportunity to get involved. Many positions receive compensation in the form of small honoraria. The SAC also employs an administrator and an office manager to aid in its work. The SAC is located on the first floor of the Wallace McCain Student Centre.

Some of the services and events provided by the SAC include:

  • Organizing Orientation, Homecoming and Winter Carnival

  • Photocopying and faxes (pay as you play)

  • Examination File

  • Student Directories and the Allisonian Yearbook

  • MAST (Mount Allison Student Tutoring)

  • Dances, speakers, entertainment...AND MORE!!

The SAC also sponsors and promotes the Clubs and Societies (C&S) of Mount Allison. These are a great asset and a wonderful way to become involved on campus. They include:

  • Academic Departmental C&S (e.g. Commerce Society, Fine Arts Society)

  • Political C&S - Young PC's, Young Liberals and Young NDP's

  • Musical C&S - Chapel Choir, Conservatory Chorale, Ethel Peake Memorial Society, Mount Allison Brass Ensemble, etc.

  • Eco-Action (Environmental)

  • Eurhetorian Society (Debating)

  • Garnet and Gold Society (Musical Theatre group)

  • Mount Allison Christian Fellowship

  • Society of All Nations (SAN)

  • World University Services of Canada (WUSC)

Any student wishing to form a club or society can do so and should go to the SAC Office for help getting started. Athletic clubs and intramurals are all run through the Athletics Department. Students have widespread representation on the campus, including membership on the Board of Regents (governing body) and Senate (academic body). Full-time students are also enrolled as members of the New Brunswick Student Alliance.

10.2 The Argosy Weekly

This weekly newspaper has been published for over 125 years by an all-student staff. The newspaper is editorially independent of both the University administration and the Student Administrative Council.

10.3 CHMA FM

In 1985 the CHMA Radio Station was converted to FM Stereo frequency. Mount Allison is one of the smallest universities to have an FM radio station. The staff (from the announcers to the technicians) consists mainly of students and members of the Sackville community, all working under a full-time Station Manager. The Station is funded by students fees and advertising revenues and reaches a listening audience of over 15,000.

10.4 Garnet and Gold Society

The Garnet and Gold Society offers students a chance to take part in the production of a major musical. Students co-ordinate all aspects of the production, which is usually presented early in the new year.

10.5 Windsor Theatre

This theatre group puts on major productions each term, some of which are created by members of the Mount Allison community.

10.6 Student Entertainment Office

This branch of the SAC co-ordinates all campus entertainment. In addition to the usual dances, movies, live bands, and cultural performances, a number of popular special events are also offered. These include Orientation Week, Homecoming, Junior Prom, Winter Carnival and Graduation events.

10.7 Residence Council

All students living in the University's various residences elect house councils and executives. These bodies organize house events and co-ordinate social activities. Each House Council President sits on Residence Council, a body which represents residential concerns to the Student Life, Student Affairs or Residence Offices.

10.8 The Tantramarsh Club

The campus pub, established in 1974, is a vibrant venue for social gatherings. The pub is the only permanently licensed facility on campus and offers to its members a giant T.V. screen, pool tables, a dance floor and weekly special events.The Pub is located in the Wallace McCain Student Centre, ground floor.

10.9 Student Employment

Part time job opportunities are plentiful at Mount Allison. Students may earn extra income through employment with Dining Services, the Library, the Campus Police, Residence Staff, Bar Services, the Tantramarsh Club and various academic departments. Contact the appropriate department of interest.

10.10 Accommodation

10.10.1 Residences

Mount Allison is a residential university with housing facilities available for approximately 50% of the student population. Each residence is unique and provides a positive living and learning environment, which promotes a balanced university experience. All first-year students who want to live in residence are guaranteed accommodation if deposit deadlines are met.

Since 1973 the University has offered co-ed residence facilities to its students. Bennett, Bigelow, Hunton, and Windsor Houses offer single and double rooms while Edwards, Harper and Thornton have single rooms. Campbell Hall offers single rooms with en-suite bathrooms. Some co-ed residences are divided by floor or by wing, while others have male and female rooms integrated on the same floor.

The Cuthbertson House Sustainable Residence is an initiative that brings students together in one residence dedicated to creating a way of life based on a participatory approach to living in a manner that will reduce the environmental impact on campus. This will include making conscientious choices, for example, about where food comes from, what temperature to maintain, in order to raise awareness about human impact and resource consumption.

Mount Allison University's "Animal House" enables students to contribute their energy, compassion, commitment and skill for one academic year in the service of rehabilitating and re-homing unwanted shelter animals. Although it is often wonderful to have the rare opportunity to live in a university residence with several pets, ultimately the students volunteer to be placed in the House for the benefit of the animals.

In keeping with its desire to provide choices in accommodation, the University offers opportunity to those students wishing to live in a smaller residence experience. Anchorage House offers a unique living and learning environment in a quiet, smaller house setting.

Anchorage, Cuthbertson and Animal Houses are limited to returning students although new students will be considered if space is available

Our 11 secure residences offer common lounges, kitchens, study rooms and laundry facilities with high speed and wireless Internet, cable TV and phone hook ups in each room (students provide the hardware). Typical room furnishings are a bed, desk, chair, closets, mini-fridge, lighting and shelving.

Prospective students should note that the University cannot be responsible for personal property. Students are strongly advised to insure their personal belongings. As indicated in the Conditions of Residence Accommodation, pets, firearms and explosive materials are not permitted in residence.

10.10.2 Residence Application Procedure

All first year students who wish to be considered for residence accommodation can apply using the on-line Residence Application on the Connect@MTA website. Assignment of residence rooms is based on the date the $100 registration deposit is received by the Registrar's Office. The $500 residence deposit must be paid by the deadline to hold a residence room for September. For further information see Fees, Section 4.2.

Students are asked to take the time to answer all the questions on the application, as this helps in appropriate placement of students in residence. Provided incoming students have met all admission and deposit deadlines, they are guaranteed residence accommodation.

Once a student enters residence, the student is responsible for the full residence and meal plan fees. If a student later withdraws from residence, the student will be entitled to the refunds detailed in the "Withdrawals and Student Accounts" section of the University Calendar.

Students studying abroad should contact the Registrar's Office, <regoffice@mta.ca> , in January, if they wish to live in residence upon their return to Mount Allison.

10.10.3 Non-University Housing

The Students' Administrative Council maintains, for the use of students, a list of accommodations available in Sackville and area. Students wishing to live in town are invited to use this information.

10.11 Department of Physical Recreation and Athletics

Mount Allison also has varsity teams in the Atlantic College Athletic Association in men's and women's basketball, women's volleyball, and men's and women's badminton. In all sports, the championship team represents Atlantic Canada in National Championships. The Mounties also play exhibition games with teams from other parts of Canada and the United States.

If you are interested in receiving information about a varsity program, contact either the coach or the Athletic Director. Please note that the fall sports usually have pre-season tryout camps. Students interested in one of these sports should contact the Athletic Director.

Note: Students who are registered in correspondence courses offered by Mount Allison through Continuous Learning and who are considered full-time students according to their course load, but who pay per-course tuition according to the fee structure outlined in 4.1.1 are not considered full-time on-campus students and are not eligible to participate in varsity sports that require confirmation of full-time enrolment.

10.11.2 Competitive Club Sports

A number of competitive club sport teams have been developed in recent years. Men's and women's rugby, men's volleyball, golf, curling, tennis, men's hockey, figure and precision skating, are just some of the sports that have developed representative teams and compete against other Universities and Colleges. The co-ordinator is the Athletic Director.

10.11.3 Intramurals

The intramural program gives students the opportunity to participate and compete in a wide variety of activities. Emphasis is placed on participation and fun. Leagues are scheduled in soccer, softball, basketball, hockey, and volleyball. Tournaments are held in golf, curling, tennis, badminton, ultimate frisbee, and other sports based on student interest. The co-ordinator is the Intramural Co-ordinator.

10.11.4 Campus Recreation

There is ample time scheduled in the athletic facilities for open recreational use. Badminton, swimming, tennis, skating, pick up hockey, basketball, field games, ultimate frisbee, and fitness related activities are very popular daily activities. The weight room/fitness centre is open seven days a week.

10.11.5 Men's and Women's Intramural Councils

Students play an integral part in the organization and administration of Mount Allison's intramural program.

Each residence on-campus and off-campus students have or will elect one or two representatives who make up the intramural council. If you are interested in becoming involved as a sports representative, contact your house president as soon as you arrive on campus. Many students become involved as officials for intramural competitions. These are part-time jobs, and students are paid for their services. If you would like to become an intramural official, contact the Intramural Office early in September.

10.12 Religious Life on Campus

10.12.1 Introduction

Mount Allison is a church-founded university which affirms the partnership of faith and higher education. The Mount Allison crest declares that religion is a central and integral part of university life, and the University continues the commitment made in its founding to nurture the spiritual life of students. It supports and encourages personal spiritual development and affirms that university is a place to be awakened to the deep mysteries of life; the search for truth is a religious quest as well as an educational goal.

The chapel at Mount Allison, located at the heart of the campus, is a visible symbol of the commitment of the university to the importance of faith in university life. It stands as a reminder that the university is committed to nurturing students as whole human persons.

While founded under Methodist direction, Mount Allison upholds freedom of religion and creeds. Chapel worship and activities are ecumenical by design; the Office of the Chaplain is intended to be an ecumenical appointment, responsive not only to the many Christian denominations represented on campus but to the diversity of religious traditions. The Chaplain is open to engaging students of all religions in faith development.

10.12.2 The Chapel

The Chapel on campus is a refuge and a retreat in the midst of the activity around it; it is open daily for quiet reflection or prayer. Its exterior design makes it accessible from any direction on campus; the interior design naturally draws the eye upwards. The chapel is used primarily for worship, but individuals and groups associated with the university may arrange with the Chaplain for the use of the chapel for purposes that reflect the goal of nurturing religious life on campus.

The chapel was built and dedicated in 1965 through the initiative and generosity of the Rev. C.H. Johnson, and with the support of many other alumni, friends of the university, church people of the region and other individuals and institutions.

The organ is a gift of a former Chancellor, Dr. Ralph P. Bell, in memory of his mother. The stained glass windows were given by Marjorie Young Bell. A permanent record of the gifts is found in "The Book of Remembrance" in the narthex of the chapel. A small meditation room for private or small group prayer or worship is located to the right of the front of the sanctuary; the Chaplain maintains a study to the left side. The Manning Room in the basement is named for the generous gift of Mrs. Gladys M. Manning, and is dedicated to the religious and social life of the campus.

A multi-faith prayer room is available in the chapel; this room is intended for private or small group prayer in a comfortable setting supportive of all religious traditions. A Muslim student group makes use of this prayer room every Friday.

10.12.3 Worship

Sunday evening worship services, or vespers, are held throughout the academic year. Other special services in the week take place through the year.

The Chaplain provides leadership in worship, drawing on students and other members of the University community. Students take an active role in the chapel programs, sharing in planning, preparing and leading worship.

10.12.4 The Chaplain

The Chaplain oversees the Chapel and its programs and worship; the mandate of the Chaplain goes beyond worship and extends to nurturing spiritual life on campus to include counsel and comfort for those needing encouragement or support, to being a refuge to those in need, to enriching University life. All the work of the Chaplain is undertaken regardless of the religion, ideology or faith of those who seek. The Chaplain is appointed by the University and serves as Chaplain to the whole community, including both students and employees, with a responsibility to speak to the university as well as from within it.

10.12.5 Student Groups

Students engage in their faith pilgrimages in many ways, and the University provides ample opportunity to develop in faith. The Chapel services give opportunity to share in worship and develop leadership abilities; the Chapel Choir provides a way to express faith in music. Student groups operate autonomously, but often in conjunction with the Chaplain.

Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship has an active group that offers fellowship, singing, Bible study and prayer. The Student Christian Movement is also very active, and encourages students to translate Christian faith into action through issues of peace and social justice.

The Pre-Theology Society comprises those students who are considering ministry, and it meets occasionally for fellowship, study and mutual support.

10.12.6 Programs

Religious awareness and spiritual development are the concern of a variety of programs initiated by student groups, the Department of Religious Studies and the Office of the Chaplain. These may include guest lecturers, forums for dialogue on religious matters, and other special events.

10.13 Student Life

The demands of studies can be particularly stressful when students encounter additional challenges of health, family, relationships or other life issues. Mount Allison provides two accredited Personal Counsellors, from whom students may receive confidential support and assistance for a variety of personal issues including anxiety, depression, alcohol or drug use, sexuality, relationships, sexual assault, family dysfunction and grief. The need for psychiatric and other mental health services can be accessed through the personal counsellors.

In emergencies students may contact Student Life during office hours, or the Sackville Hospital.

10.14.2 Sexual Harassment

The University's Sexual Harassment Advisor is available to provide education on sexual harassment and assault and to receive complaints from students, staff and faculty.

10.14.3 Career Choice Concerns

The University Career Resource Centre is located in the Student Life Office and houses information on graduate and professional programs, careers, study, volunteer, and work abroad programs. Information is available on occupational profiles, labour market trends, resumé writing, job search techniques and preparing for interviews. Workshops are also available on career related issues throughout the academic year. The Academic and Career Counsellor offers guidance with career exploration through individual career counselling and interest and skill surveys which help students answer the questions such as the following:

What career do my abilities lead to?
What career or study path do my interests lead to?
What can I do with my undergraduate degree?
Where should I go to pursue this career?
What does the future hold for the profession I am interested in?

10.14.4 Employment

All job postings received by the Academic and Career Counsellor are posted on <http://www.workopolisCampus.com> which is a free web service accessible to all students. Some hard copies of job postings are placed on a notice board outside the Student Life Office. A variety of internships and on- and off-campus career and summer employment opportunities, both part-time and full-time, are posted. Applications and additional information are available in the Student Life Office. In addition, the Academic and Career Counsellor co-ordinates the visits of employers to campus. For further information contact the Academic and Career Counsellor.

10.14.5 Student Health Centre

The Wellness Centre is committed to providing quality health care and services to promote and enhance students' good health and well-being. These services are easily accessible and geared toward the unique needs and concerns of all students. Optimal health enables students to achieve their fullest academic potential.

Within the Wellness Centre is a non emergency health service for all Mount Allison Students open during the academic year (September to mid April). It is a non- judgmental health service that strives to reduce health barriers for young adults living away from home with the support of a Registered Nurse/Educator.

All health services are strictly confidential. Health information can only be released with the student's written authorization. In order to promote and enhance students' good health and well-being, the Registered Nurse/Educator co-ordinates health care services of Mount Allison students, by triaging their individual needs. Health referrals can be made through the Registered Nurse/Educator in order to promote healthy living through a caring and supportive environment, in accordance with the standards of professional practice.

In order to further service the medical health needs of Mount Allison students, a Family Physician provides limited clinic hours at the Wellness Centre based on the premise that the Registered Nurse/Educator assesses and screens students according to their health care needs prior to the referral with the physician. Students are also encouraged to seek appointments with the doctors outside of the clinic as necessary. Emergencies are dealt with at the Emergency Department of the Sackville Memorial Hospital.

In addition, holistic health care needs of students are met through the provision of a wellness provider for a limited number of hours per week at the Wellness Centre.

The Wellness Centre provides comprehensive health care needs of students through health promotion initiatives, health education, testing, health counselling, clinical services, and referrals, when appropriate. Please see a list of student health services available on the Mount Allison University health web page at < http://www.mta.ca/health >

10.14.6 Student Health Insurance

Because most students have health insurance through parental plans, the University does not have a mandatory health insurance program for Canadian students. Health insurance is mandatory for international students. Registration for this international health insurance plan is through the International Student Advisor's office. Students are strongly urged to ensure that they have adequate coverage. A list of health insurance options are available from on the Mount Allison University health insurance web page at < http://www.mta.ca/health/insurance >

10.14.7 Dietary and Nutritional Concerns

10.14.9 Landlord/Tenant Concerns

Students with inquiries about landlord/tenant relations or leases are encouraged to contact the Office of the Rentalsman in Moncton.

10.14.10 International Students

Students who come to Mount Allison from other countries are very important members of the University community. A special International Orientation is held for them when they arrive to help them with their adjustment to Canada through information sessions answering their specific needs. The International Advisor is available throughout the year to help international students with any kinds of problems they might have such as cultural adjustment and personal, academic or immigration problems. A comprehensive health insurance plan for international students is available through this office as well. Mount Allison University has strict guidelines which protect international students' rights not to be discriminated against because of race, colour, ethnic or national origin, place of origin, or ancestry. There are several clubs, committees and campus projects which promote awareness, understanding, and appreciation of multiculturalism.

10.14.11 Governance

Since 1989, students have been subject to the student governance system described in the document Policies and Procedures for Student Governance, which is available from the SAC or Student Life. The Director of Student Life is available to explain to students how the governance system works and what students' rights are under the system. All students admitted to the University agree to abide by, and be subject to, the regulations as outlined in this document. The University reserves the right to suspend or dismiss any student for infractions of the regulations. Neither the University nor any of its regents or officers shall be under any liability whatsoever because of such action.

10.15 Services for Students With Disabilities
