Alumni raised their glasses to Acadia at an intimate gathering in the Pimlico Room at The Orange in Belgravia, London, on Sept. 22, 2022 as they heard updates from University President and Vice-Chancellor Dr. Peter Ricketts and Vice-President, Advancement (Interim) Nancy Handrigan (’92).

There was much to enjoy and plenty to appreciate on July 29, 2022 at the 40th Acadia Alumni Golf Tournament at KenWo Golf Club in New Minas, Nova Scotia, located in Mi'kma'ki, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq People. Participants were pumped and the mood was upbeat as 25 teams and more than 120 golfers took to the course to celebrate our alumni community and provide financial support to incoming Acadia students.

Acadia University and the Acadia Alumni Association partnered on June 23, 2022 to celebrate faculty, staff and alumni.
