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.

Who knew that 2020 was going to provide a different perspective on how we do things in our alumni community? We began the delivery of virtual events in May 2020, and they have been so popular that we will continue with them going forward. We have been able to engage many alumni who would not normally be 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.

On this page, you will find our upcoming events; recordings of our recent events; photographs of events from around the world; recordings of Axe-Cast events held by our friends in Athletics; and a space to share other events that are being offered by our partners.

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

Stand Up and Cheer!
