Since 1838, Acadia University has challenged students to excel both in and out of the classroom. Located in the historic town of Wolfville, Nova Scotia, 100 kilometres from the provincial capital, Halifax, Nova Scotia, the University sits on 200 acres of breathtakingly beautiful land in the heart of the Annapolis Valley.

Acadia's commitment to innovation is evident across the disciplines and through the Acadia Advantage. The Acadia Advantage is an academic initiative unique in Canada that integrates the use of notebook computers into the undergraduate curriculum. In March 1999, the Irving family made a substantial gift to the University, an Environmental Sciences Research Centre, Botanical Gardens, and Campus Meeting Place. The complex consists of botanical gardens and a glasshouse that features representative plants, habitats, and rocks of northeastern North America. The facility also includes modern classrooms and a variety of spaces where students, faculty, alumni, and the surrounding community can meet formally and informally.
