Video Diaries: Acadia grads surprise faculty and staff with messages of thanks

Throughout their university journeys, Acadia students often develop strong connections with staff and faculty – whether it be a professor, coach, mentor, or another helpful member of the Acadia team – who are instrumental to their overall growth and success. 

As Convocation is a time of celebration and reflection, five of our graduating students have written a thank-you letter to a faculty or staff member, talking about the profound impact those community members had on our students during their time at Acadia. 

We had the joy of surprising the recipients with these letters and filmed their responses. Here’s a glimpse of the gratitude shared by Acadia’s Class of 2024.
