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.

Olivia Stevenson is the 2023 recipient of The Athenaeum and Acadia Alumni Student of the Year Award. Stevenson entered the kinesiology program at Acadia University with a desire to build on a very successful high school experience and expand her horizons. Highly motivated, energetic and intelligent, she wanted to immerse herself in campus life, connect with people and satisfy an overriding ambition to serve others. Fast forward to 2023 and she has fulfilled those ambitions beyond all measure, engaging people with her powerful vision and providing spaces for others so they can be their very best.

Charles Dewey graduated from Acadia University in 1957, but never had the chance to cross the stage to accept his degree. He had to leave town for work instead, but the ambition to share in the atmosphere of an Acadia graduation ceremony never really went away. On Sunday, May 14, 2023, 66 years after receiving his degree, 89-year-old Charles Dewey finally crossed the stage during a Convocation ceremony at Acadia.

Many professors understand that success is deeply personal and work hard to tailor each student’s academic experience to ensure superb personal and professional achievement. Acadia’s Dr. Ryan MacNeil is no exception. His innovative teaching style and passion for his students is extraordinary, and why he is the 2023 recipient of the Acadia Alumni Association Faculty Award for Excellence in Teaching.

Acadia University is pleased to welcome Vicki MacCrimmon as the new Executive Director, Development in the Office of Advancement.
