A note from Oonagh...

Welcome to your complete guide to Acadia University’s Alumni Events. I am your host and moderator, Oonagh Proudfoot (’93, ’06), Executive Director of Alumni Affairs.

We have had an exciting two years offering regular virtual events to our alumni community and we aren’t going to stop now! We have engaged many alumni who would not normally have been able to get to our in-person events simply because they live in regions we don’t often visit or because they are leading busy lives. We understand and are delighted to connect with you virtually when it’s not possible for you to share the Acadia spirit in person. Having said that, we do hope that we will be back on the road again soon.

In the meantime, you will find on this page our upcoming events as well as recordings of all our previous virtual events. We have offered a wide range of topics over the last two years and trust you will find something to your liking. Keep your eyes open for more upcoming events and please have a look through the library.

We hope you enjoy your time here and join us for upcoming events both virtually and in-person. As always, I encourage you to stay in touch and welcome any suggestions that you may have on future topics of interest.

Yours in Acadia spirit,
