            Did you study at Acadia? You would not believe how many times I have been asked this when I tell people I did my business degree in a Uni in Canada! There is something special about Acadia and anyone would not understand it unless you have been involved with this school. I went on to a bigger campus for my grad school and I was lost in the thousands unlike being in a smaller, closer community at Acadia. Thanks Acadia and Wolfville for the wonderful 3 years!

            Small school, big impact! Throughout my career I've always been proud of my Acadia University roots. I knew my professors and they knew me. Does that really happen in a bigger university? My experience there gave me roots to grow on and I feel part of an exclusive club - Acadia grads!

            Acadia is the best university I ever attended! The Professors are very caring and they run an extra mile for their students. As an international student one was always made to feel welcome, in fact it was home away from home for me!
