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.
