Roots run deep at Acadia, and we are proud of our diverse and extensive family tree. It has many branches, full of people who are committed to making a difference. Our alumni develop and refine academic and life skills during their time as students and then emerge, ready to take on the world after graduation, fully equipped to effect change as civic and community leaders.

All members of our alumni family have benefited from the rich and inclusive liberal arts education that is the hallmark of Acadia’s fine academics experience. The Acadia Alumni Association supports students during their time at Acadia and beyond, and encourages members of our outstanding community to stay in touch.

A 1947 grad class banner has an interesting history that spans generations of Acadia alumni. Curious?


An enthusiastic crowd of Acadia alumni was on hand November 20, 2021 at The Auction House in Halifax to mark a wonderful in-person event and celebrate Acadia Alumni Association Board member and Axemen basketball star Ted Upshaw (’80) prior to his induction into the Nova Scotia Sport Hall of Fame.

To have a championship team, it takes great coaches, veteran leadership, buy-in from younger players, commitment to the program and a little bit of luck. Anyone who has ever been a student-athlete at the university level will tell you; championships are hard to come by. Student-athletes can spend four or five years at school and never play in a championship game. During the 2011-12 academic year, however, Acadia was fortunate to have three championship teams; in football, men’s basketball, and women’s basketball.

Human Resources Manager Jennifer Veinot is the epitome of skill, kindness and customer service. Her unparalleled personal approach to human resource management has helped to shape the foundation of Acadia’s success and why she is this year’s Acadia Alumni Outstanding University Service Award recipient.
