20 Tips for first-year students: #4- Get some inside information

Fourth in this 20-part video series for the Class of 2015, Alex Dalton (fourth-year international relations) and Avery Wheeler (fourth- year environmental studies) share what they wish they knew before they came to Mount Allison.

Alex mentions the very useful reference librarians and Avery mentions that rain boots are a must have as, you know, it sometimes rains in Sackville.

The one thing I wish I knew is that with a little bit of effort and being social the first few weeks, there’s really no way you won’t meet a great group of people. Mount Allison is known for its close-knit community and building lifelong bonds. The bottom line is that while you may not become the closest of friends with everyone you meet during Orientation Week, you'll find at least a few you will be friends with long after your time at Mount Allison. I know I did.
