Meet Your Mount 101 Team

The Mount 101 team consists of the Program Coordinator and the Mount Mentors. We're here to help you find your way at the Mount. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns. You can also stop by our Offices in the Advising Centre - Seton 304.

The Mount Mentors

The Mount Mentors are a group of students who are here to help you navigate your transition to the Mount. As an incoming student, you'll be matched with an upper-year student who will act as your Mount Mentor for the year. Your Mentor will serve as a resource and an important contact point throughout the year. Mentors know what it's like to be new to the Mount and can draw on their own experiences to help you with your own. They're also here to help you complete the online program and answer any questions related to Mount 101.

How to contact your Mount Mentor?

Your Mentor will send you an email introducing themselves once you've been matched. You'll be able to find their contact information on that email and on this website. Please don't hesitate to send your Mentor an email if you have any questions or would like to meet with them face-to-face. You can also find the Mentors at the Advising Centre - Seton 304 and at various events around campus. Just look for the Mount Mentor t-shirts!

Mount 101 Program Coordinator

Marisha Caswell

I'm originally from a small town in Ontario but came to Halifax for university (at one of the other schools in town). Although I returned to Ontario for graduate school, I missed Halifax so much that I decided to come back! Before coming to the Mount I taught at Queen's University and Algoma University where I saw first-hand the need for a program like Mount 101. I'm excited to be working with the Mount Mentors on this unique first-year experience program. As the Mount 101 Program Coordinator, I'm responsible for overseeing all components of Mount 101 and making sure they run smoothly. 

If you have any questions or concerns about the program, please contact me. When I'm not at work, you can find me spending time outside with my family, reading, or baking.

Fun fact: I am obsessed with the history of crime and have spent far too much time reading old criminal trials and true crime stories.
