Mount Allison University
Sackville, Canada


University description (as per official university website)

Mount Allison University, a campus of extraordinary beauty, is nestled on the Tantramar marshes in the picture-perfect town of Sackville in the province of New Brunswick, also known across Canada as the picture-perfect province. But Mount Allison has more claims to fame than beauty alone. It offers five degrees to undergraduate students — Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Fine Arts, Bachelor of Commerce, and Bachelor of Music, as well as some postgraduate degrees in science. Mount Allison encourages personalized combinations of courses and offers a very strong academic and extracurricular experience, one that we fondly refer to as Mount A plus.

Founded in 1839 by Charles Frederick Allison, Mount Allison has a rich history but has always kept an eye squarely on the future. Mount Allison was one of the first universities in the country to introduce a completely wireless campus and has had a lot of other “firsts” as well.

Mount Allison was the first university in the British Empire to confer a bachelor’s degree to a woman, Grace Annie Lockhart, who earned a Bachelor of Science in 1875. It was also the first university to grant a Bachelor of Arts degree to a woman — Harriet Starr Stewart. Mary Electa Adams (1823-1898), who taught at Mount Allison, paved the way for women’s access to Canadian universities.

Mount Allison has the oldest university art gallery in Canada — the Owens Art Gallery, which opened in 1895 and has a permanent collection of more than 3,000 works, including paintings and sketches by the Group of Seven. Noted Canadian artists such as Alex Colville, Christopher Pratt, Mary Pratt, John Hammond, Lawren P. Harris, Tom Forrestall, and Ted Pulford, whose works are also featured in the gallery and around campus, are all former Mount A faculty members and/or alumni.

Mount Allison was the first Canadian university to offer a Canadian Studies program, and the late Dr. George Stanley, the first director of the Centre for Canadian Studies, designed the Canadian flag. The octagonal Ralph Pickard Bell Library and Archives boasts an extensive collection of Canadiana.

The Mount Allison campus is well worth exploring. The new Academy Gardens and en-suite residence, Campbell Hall, are special spots for conferences or family visits. The Swan Pond on Main Street is an ideal location for a picnic in the summer or a skating party in the winter.

The charming President’s Cottage, in the middle of campus, is one of the oldest buildings on campus, predating Confederation. It served as a home for Mount Allison presidents from 1857-1957 and is now a University Club, where lunches are served to the public and club members during the academic year. The chapel nearby has been described as a masterpiece of art and architecture, made even more stunning by its unique stained glass windows.

Mount Allison is also a cultural draw for people across the province, bringing in well-known artists, lecturers, and performers for local citizens and tourists alike. A Shakespearean Festival by the Marsh is traditionally staged by the Swan Pond in the summer, and plays, concerts, and special events are also held in Mount Allison’s Windsor Theatre, Brunton Auditorium, and Convocation Hall — one of the largest concert halls east of Montreal.
