IN THE NEWS
Maclean's magazine - Acadia University continues its reputation as one of Canada's best primarily undergraduate universities in the annual Maclean's magazine ranking of post-secondary institutions.

Acadia ranks in the top five and takes the top spot in the reputational survey among primarily undergraduate institutions. In the 31 years that Maclean's has published its annual comparisons, Acadia has consistently placed in the top five.
Acadia Athletics News - Grace Pinch of the Acadia women's rugby team has been named a finalist in the Canadian Olympic Committee's annual, cross-country talent search - the RBC Training Ground.

Over the past several months, more than 4,000 athletes from a wide range of sports participated, performing core speed, strength, power, and endurance tests for review by talent scouts from eight different Olympic sports
Canadian Architect - "This handsome volume documents a well-loved part of Acadia University—the publicly accessible Irving Centre and Gardens, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2022. Architectural historian John Leroux's essay on the building chronicles its design, led by American architect Robert Stern, who chose a classical style that wed the Centre to the earliest buildings on the nearly 200-year-old campus. Critic Vincent Scully deemed the resulting building to be "one of Stern's most memorable interventions in a campus," and Leroux believes that, following a lacklustre period for Atlantic campus architecture in the 1970s to 1990s, it was the first in a wave of excellent new institutional buildings in the Maritimes."
