Acadia University celebrated its 179th anniversary on November 15, 2017 during Founders’ Day on the Wolfville, Nova Scotia campus. Faculty, staff, students and alumni shared in the occasion, which took place in the newly-renovated Axe Lounge in honour of the 50th anniversary of the incorporation of the Acadia Students’ Union. Guests enjoyed a bowl of hot chowder, coffee, tea and treats from noon to 1:30 p.m. Words of welcome were offered by (pictured, left to right) Executive Director of Alumni Affairs Ian Murray (’88), Students’ Union president Grace Hamilton-Burge, and University Chaplain, the Reverend Tim McFarland (’92).
