Transitioning from high school to university can feel
like a big change. We smooth this transition with the
Qualico Bridge to Success Program (QBTS).
With QBTS, new Indigenous students are connected
with academic learning support, advising, peer-mentoring
and special events to enhance the first year experience.
There is no cost to participate in this program.

The Commerce Society has been a large and active society on the Mount Allison campus for many years. This year we are continuing with our traditional events such as the famous "Five and Dime", kickoff BBQ's, guest speakers, "Pool with Profs", and trips to visit Commerce Alumni.

The Commerce Society, in particular the executive, also act as a voice for commerce students by giving feedback to the Commerce faculty on the department and the programme.

Over the past few decades, the injurious effects of human behaviour on the Earth’s natural systems have become increasingly obvious. However, despite scientific, scholarly, political, and popular initiatives of all kinds —from world summits to music festivals — the pace and scope of destruction has not slackened. There can be little question that ecological changes leading to extinctions of species and loss of habitat pose a threat to our health, our prosperity, and even our existence.
We foster scholarship and research because we recognize their role in the advancement of knowledge and in sustaining the quality of teaching and the intellectual life of the University (St. Thomas University Mission Statement, 2005-2010 Strategic Plan).
