Student Sound Offs
"The student-to-teacher ratio is small, which means my professors are always available to help, know me by name and want to teach me, not just because it's their job."
"It can't be stressed enough that while students here have a blast, MtA is a truly academic school, where marks are more difficult to earn than at a number of other schools in the region, or in general."
"Very friendly campus; everyone pretty much knows everyone and is involved in something besides simply school."
"There is an extremely narrow variety of classes, and those that exist are aimed at degree programs. There are almost no purely interest-based electives."
"There are tons of opportunities for students that don't exist at other (larger) universities -- to give conference presentations, get published, do advanced research, etc."
"For our small size, we have a huge international student population. We are very diverse."
"It's a very safe, small community. Few people ever feel threatened or not at home. All bars, buildings and activities are very close together."
"It's got this cozy country-cottage vibe while at the same time an old established regal sense that makes you feel a part of it and better about yourself for being a part of it."
"The health services offered at Mount Allison are terrible. Because the student health centre only has physicians available for two hours per week, it is very difficult to get an appointment with the doctor."
"We are really small, but are able to attract some amazing, well-known and high calibre people to come to our small town. Exposure to pure talent and inspiration is never lacking in Sackville."
