Greetings, all, from downtown Wolfville, where the Christmas spirit is in the air (along with a few snowflakes)!
We’re just wrapping up the fall term here on campus and it has been a great one. Students are completing their exams and most are heading home to spend time with family and friends. Our Chancellor likes to boast that approximately 80% of our students report doing some form of volunteer work, whether it be the S.M.I.L.E. program, or some other worthy cause. The Axewomen and Axemen have distinguished themselves in the pool, on the fields, courts and ice and lead the nation with the highest percentage, per capita, of Academic All-Canadians. In our own special way, Acadia continues to be a force in the pursuit of knowledge and personal growth.
I’m writing you today to encourage you to attend a gathering of alumni from the Maple League of Universities – Acadia, Bishop’s, Mount Allison, and StFX – in San Francisco on the evening of January 23. I’m sending this note far and wide as I know Acadia grads travel a lot and just may find themselves in the Bay Area. If that’s the case, or if you’re living local, come on out and connect with alumni from the four universities and enjoy a wide selection of tapas and sample a variety of the brewery's signature organic ales. All alumni and their guests are invited to attend, but we do ask that you kindly register by clicking the link below.
I hope to see you on January 23, but in the meantime, please accept my best wishes for a Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy 2018!
