Visitors to Acadia University and the Divinity College often comment on our warm family atmosphere and hospitality. As a relatively small school, we can really build community and get to know one another more fully than is possible in a larger setting, and we think this is particularly important for spiritual formation and development.

We are pleased to offer personalized visits that fit around your specific needs and questions. Please contact the Recruitment Coordinator to discuss dates and times, and work out what is best for you personally. What can you expect to experience during your visit? It may include the following:

  • Sit in on a specific class or lecture
  • Meet with a professor or subject-matter expert
  • Tour the main campus and residences (if you are considering staying on campus)
  • Meet current students in your interest area
  • Participate in community worship and lunch

As part of our intentional focus on community, our students, staff, and faculty gather together on Wednesdays at 11:45am for a worship service followed by community lunch. This is a time for us to come together as one body of believers, and an opportunity for informal conversations and deeper friendships. Distance students and anyone interested in our services can participate by going to our Podcasts.

We look forward to hearing from you about a visit, and we can also work through details around accommodations and parking as needed.
