Alumni Events & Features

A note from Oonagh...

We have had an exciting few years offering 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. On this page, you will see a link to recordings of all our virtual events so far. We have offered a wide range of topics and trust you will find something to your liking. Please stay tuned for more upcoming events and have a look through the library.

In addition to our regular virtual events series, we also offer an online book club. We have enjoyed several books already and encourage you to join us. We showcase one title every four months and have been fortunate to date to have the authors of each of those titles join us for our book club debrief.

We are also delighted to be able to travel again. We have managed to get out to see many of you and will continue to do so. For those who live in areas where we are headed, I look forward to seeing you in person soon! Please check our schedule so you’ll know when we are coming your way.

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 you may have on future topics of interest or places to visit.

Thank you,

Oonagh Proudfoot

Executive Director, Alumni Affairs ('93, '06)
