#AcadiaU alumni here at home and around the world have been united in an outpouring of condolence and support for all those affected by the tragic events in Nova Scotia on April 18-19, 2020.

Acadia alumnus Jim Prime (’69) is in self-isolation right now, like millions of people around the world. An accomplished and celebrated author, Jim has written more than 20 books during his literary career, is a former editor of The Atheneaum, and a regular contributor to our alumni magazine, the Bulletin. Here’s his tongue-in-cheek take on a day in the life of a self-isolator.

Many Acadia students are facing financial difficulties as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. For some, challenges with rent, groceries, transportation, and lack of summer employment opportunities could threaten their ability to return to their studies in the fall.

In the challenging situation presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, Acadia University is committed to keeping the health and safety of our students, employees, alumni and stakeholders in the centre of the frame. In responding to unprecedented circumstances, we are following the lead of the Nova Scotia Chief Medical Officer of Health and the Government of Canada. As one element of our broader institutional response and with the well-being of our community in mind, the Office of Advancement and the Acadia Alumni Association must announce the POSTPONEMENT and/or CANCELLATION of several events.
