It feels like an embrace, being gathered into a community of kindness. We believe a high-quality education includes a high quality of life. We support you every step along the way.
It looks like a rich mosaic of 3,500 students from more than 50 countries. A beautiful green oasis of gardens, walking trails and ivy-covered buildings. Athletics facilities where everyone works and trains to be a little bit better than before. Friendly faces—peers and professionals—there to lend a hand when things don't feel right. We want to make sure your university experience is a safe and healthy one.
It's sliding down the mud in the town harbour with your friends. It's going to an open mic night whether you can sing or not. It's exploring a town where people are proud of where they live and what they do. That’s the spirit. And if you want to hear it, cheer it! Acadia’s varsity teams have won more national championships than any other university in Atlantic Canada.
It's choosing from more than 80 clubs, and if you don’t find one you want, create it. We promote community-mindedness and attract students who feel the same way. Eighty percent of our students volunteer. Together you shape your world and contribute to the local and global community. You develop a generosity of spirit, and it feels good.
It means dreaming big. Becoming an engaged and responsible citizen. Building work experience while you study. Experiencing different cultures at sister campuses across the globe. Customizing your Acadia experience with summer or off-campus study. We want to help make your education work for you.
