Mount Allison University is a small, primarily undergraduate liberal arts and science institution in Sackville, New Brunswick, a picturesque university town on Canada’s east coast. Half of the first-year student population is from outside the province and approximately 10 percent of the student body is from outside the country. The university, which is committed to ensuring students receive personalized, one-on-one attention, boasts 53 Rhodes Scholars – one of the best records among universities in Canada – and also has one of the largest endowments per capita at more than $172 million.

Mount Allison is renowned for providing students with an enriching, diverse, and challenging educational experience. In addition to degrees in arts, commerce, science, fine arts, and music, students can choose from more than 40 programs that match their interests and career goals. The university’s immersive learning community integrates an excellent academic program with an abundance of cultural and extracurricular activities, including varsity, club, and intramural sports and an exciting array of exchange and study-abroad programs. Undergraduate students can participate in innovative research as early as second year and many even co-publish articles with professors before they graduate.

In 2014, the University officially opened the Purdy Crawford Centre for the Arts, a new home for the Fine Arts department and Drama program. Alumni Field, Mount Allison’s new athletics field, opened in 2015. The Centre for Environmental Innovation, scheduled to open in 2018, will see the renovation of two existing facilities on campus to establish a world-class facility wi  a focus on environmental science. Housed in the existing Gairdner Building, located at the heart of Mount Allison’s campus, the renovated facility will allow for increased research collaboration and facilitate the study of the effects of changing climate and pollutants on marine and freshwater eco-systems.Mount Allison is also a member of the Maple League of Universities, along with Acadia, Bishop’s, and St. Francis Xavier Universities. The four universities are defined by their focused commitment to the undergraduate experience. (
