About Acadia University

Founded in 1838, Acadia University is one of the oldest and most respected liberal arts universities in Canada. Located just a one-hour drive from Halifax, Nova Scotia and its international airport, Acadia is an integral part of the quintessential college town of Wolfville, overlooking the Annapolis Valley and the Bay of Fundy. The mission of Acadia University is to provide a personalized and rigorous liberal education, promote a robust and respectful scholarly community, and inspire a diversity of students to become critical thinkers, lifelong learners, engaged citizens, and responsible global leaders.

By choosing Acadia, students have opportunities to work closely with professors, volunteer in the community, study abroad, enjoy co-op placements, and be engaged in real-world research. Acadia’s four faculties – Arts, Pure and Applied Sciences, Professional Studies, and Theology – offer more than 200 degree combinations in its undergraduate academic programs and graduate programs. Some of the most popular majors are in biology, marketing, English, psychology, environmental studies, and kinesiology. For over 26 years, Acadia has ranked as one of the top 5 undergraduate universities in Canada and it has consistently ranked as the number 1 undergraduate university in Nova Scotia.

Located at the centre of campus, the Vaughan Memorial Library provides many services and specialized collections, which support the teaching and research programs of the University. The library collection of over a million titles in all formats is complemented by numerous electronic services and databases.

Clubs and societies are an important part of the Acadia Students’ Union. Not only do they provide opportunities to meet people with similar interests, do exciting things, and socialize, but they also give students an opportunity to broaden their university experience and get involved. With over 80 clubs and societies, there is something for everyone.

Acadia’s 12 residence buildings range from high-rise to heritage and from basic double rooms to deluxe singles in suites. Each residence has a team of residence assistants who build and maintain a sense of community and work with security staff to provide 24/7 campus safety.

Acadia is located in the quintessential college town of Wolfville, Nova Scotia, just a one-hour drive from Halifax and its international airport. Just steps beyond campus, students can explore a rich, natural environment that includes the world’s highest tides, vineyards, woodland trails, and rich farmlands. On campus, take advantage of research, dining, dancing and conference facilities and be sure to check out lecture series, concert and theatre events and catch the excitement of varsity athletics games. Acadia also has an Art Gallery, community recreation facilities, and the beautiful Harriet Irving Botanical Gardens.
