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.

Members of the alumni community braved overcast skies and slightly wet weather to come together on the Acadia campus October 14-17 for Homecoming 2021. Things were a little different than in previous years because guests at a number of events were required to pre-register, offer proof of vaccination and a photo ID upon arrival due to the lingering coronavirus pandemic, but spirits were high and several activities made the weekend come alive in true Acadia tradition!

Acadia University celebrated the Acadia Sports Hall of Fame Induction ceremony on October 16, 2021 as part of Homecoming Weekend and welcomed football Axeman Bruce Beaton (’92, ’96), rugby Axewoman Andrea Burk (’06), and basketball Axeman Ed Shannon (’79) to the hall.

The Acadia Alumni Association is proud to announce that Dr. Anthony ‘Tony’ Cicerone (’68) is the 2021 recipient of the Acadia Alumni Isaac Chipman Award for Excellence in Alumni Service.

A Natural Balance, a beautifully illustrated book with full-colour images, has been published to mark the 20th anniversary of Acadia’s K.C. Irving Environmental Science Centre and Harriet Irving Botanical Gardens.
