What a Homecoming Weekend at Acadia University Oct. 12-15, 2017! There was a full slate of activities, including the Installation of Acadia’s 16th President and Vice-Chancellor, Dr. Peter J. Ricketts; the running of the 105th Annual Alumni Bulmer Race; raising of a banner to honour the contributions of Major Fred Kelly to athletics; dedication of the Jackson Circle memorial at the BAC; and a march down Main Street featuring Bermudian and Caribbean alumni who returned to ‘Takeover’ Homecoming. Seven outstanding athletes were inducted into the Acadia Sports Hall of Fame; 600 people packed the annual Backyard Barbecue hosted by the Acadia Alumni Association on the Clark Terrace at Alumni Hall; Acadia walloped StFX 35-17 in football; the Stevens Centre was officially opened at the Athletic Complex; and our Caribbean and Bermudian alumni enjoyed a welcome reception and the following evening a lovely dinner in the Wu Welcome Centre. It was a grand time, and we can’t wait to see you next year, October 11-14, 2018! For more, please see our photo gallery.
