What our students are saying in 2021

“My search for a friendly study environment, understanding professors and a top notch tourism and hospitality program (even during the COVID-19 pandemic) ended when I found Mount Saint Vincent University.” – Gurpreet Singh

Shannon Paquette

“Mount Saint Vincent University cares! I remember being just one semester into my four-year degree and I became the biggest advocate for the Mount. As a transfer student, I quickly saw the difference in how invested the faculty of the Tourism & Hospitality Management department and the Centre of Women in Business (AYWE) were in the growth, development and success of their students, and how often they celebrated those successes. Professors are enthusiastic, passionate in their field, and engaging both online and in-class. Due to smaller program sizes, there’s much more opportunity to form connections with classmates, have mentorship from professors, network at conferences, receive referrals for jobs, and earn scholarships and unique educational travel experiences. The Co-op program provides on-the-job learning and invaluable professional experience to combine with the academic knowledge gained in the classroom and sets students up for success upon graduation. My journey at MSVU in the Tourism & Hospitality Management (Co-op) Program has inspired and revealed my true passion for tourism and given me the tools to embark on an entrepreneurial endeavour of hosting tours here in Nova Scotia.” – Shannon Paquette

“Many will agree, including those in other programs offered at the Mount, that one of the perks of attending this university is the quality of education we receive in small classes. This is especially true for the Tourism and Hospitality program because it is under professional studies and the diversity it attracts. I often think about how grateful I am to grow and move forward with familiar faces in the course of my academic career. I am still taking classes with students and professors I met in my first year. Consequently, completing class tasks, working on a group project together, participating in class discussions, and communicating with professors became easier, learning became more fun, and my passion in this industry grew larger. The Mount hosts incredible networking opportunities with local industry professionals throughout the academic year. I was personally recruited during one of these events for my first co-op term. Co-operative program is mandatory for tourism students in the bachelor’s program which provides valuable work experience prior to entering the real working world.” – Ji In Yoo
