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.

An enthusiastic group of alumni keen to be engaged with Acadia enjoyed an intimate and lively gathering in the Main Hall at TANOKE in Singapore on February 29, 2024 to meet President Dr. Jeff Hennessy (’99), learn more about him, and experience his passion for the University.

Don Clow (’83) is a go-to kind of guy who always comes up clutch, and the rural PEI native has proven this time and again during his illustrious career as a student-athlete, businessperson, community advocate and philanthropist. The Acadia Alumni Association applauds his remarkable commitment to community, the University and its constituency, and is pleased to add another accolade to his resume by naming Don as this year's Distinguished Alumni Award recipient.

Suzanne Knight (’07) presented an incredibly positive perspective on crisis management with her very informative presentation, “Never waste a good crisis: embrace the opportunity for transformation” at this year’s Toronto Business Breakfast on February 15, 2024. Highlighting that flexibility and leadership are key, Suzanne stressed that we all must start small and learn fast, and remember that all crises come with their own set of ripple effects.

A terrific crowd of alumni, incoming students, potential students, alumni and community packed The Coral Reef Room at the Margaritaville Beach Resort in Nassau on February 12, 2024 to meet new President Dr. Jeff Hennessy (’99) and experience his passion for the University. The Office of Advancement and Enrolment Services co-hosted the event and provided updates, news and information about Acadia, on-the-spot admissions, and valuable how-to registration information.
