"Acadia’s tradition of academic rigour and excellence is part of who we are, and part of being a top tier university in Canada and in the world,” says Ray Ivany, Acadia’s 15th president and vice-chancellor. “Our motto embodies the Acadia spirit – through hard work, we succeed.”
When university is in session, the town of Wolfville, Nova Scotia, features a population that is almost equally balanced between students and full-time residents. This means that Acadia’s activities – from sports and leisure to arts and culture – are integral to the town.
