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.

Happy Holidays to one and all! We asked: what makes the season so memorable? Here’s what our Advancement team had to say.

Sometimes learning happens 20 feet up a ladder, 30 minutes from campus with a 40-pound wooden box in one hand and a drill in the other. That’s where Zack Pate is on a fall afternoon: installing a bat box in Hall’s Harbour for the Annapolis Valley Bat Box Project. Launched in 2020 with fellow Acadia student Taryn Muldoon, the project is helping to house the tiny, flying mammals and collect data in partnership with a military biologist and university researchers, volunteers, the Canada Conservation Corps, high school teachers and students.

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.
