Resident's View

"I grew up in a small community and having friends within walking distance, within talking distance has been a welcome change of scenery. I could have commuted to and from Acadia every day, but I would not have met nearly as many people as I have while living in residence. Being a resident in Seminary, Resident Assistant in Dennis, and Senior Resident Assistant in Chase, I have met hundreds of unique people who I would not otherwise have had the chance to meet. It is comforting sharing a building with old friends, new friends, and soon-to-be friends. I am proud of my decision to live on campus."

"Chipman house is among one of the most upbeat buildings on campus and it is a perfect place to begin your university experience. This is my final year at Acadia University and living in Chipman is by far one of the best experiences I have ever had. I am going to miss the diversity and countless personalities that I've had the pleasure of living with. It's always a good feeling to have some of your closest friends right down the hall. Chipman's tradition and pride create a lifelong bond among residents and the consistently evolving culture gives valuable life lessons for the future." (Nathan England, Petite Riviere, Nova Scotia, 4th year Business major, Senior Resident Assistant 2007/08, Chipman House & Roy Jodrey Hall)

Resident's View

"I moved into Crowell Tower at the beginning of my 2nd year and was immediately welcomed by its friendly, diverse community.  Each residence has its own special flavour, and Tower is renowned for its strong community.  I love the circular floor layout because it makes it easy to meet new people and build lasting friendships.  It's no wonder Tower has won Acadia's "Community of the Year" award so many times!  Conveniently located next to Acadia's largest student parking lot, only steps away from meal hall, and a short walk from classes, Tower's location is superb.  While the building hasn't been recently renovated, it proudly makes up for the vintage decor by boasting the best built-in storage space on campus, affordable pricing, unparalleled charm and personality, and the best view in the Annapolis Valley.  I am honoured to call Tower home.” (Elisabet Lindale, 4th year History major, Resident Assistant 2011/12, Crowell Tower)

Resident's View

"If you were to ask anyone why they loved Cutten House, they'll find it very hard to explain. And while I'm no different, we will all tell you it was the best experience of our lives. From the community the building forms based on its layout, to its strong history of getting students involved in residence life, I couldn't imagine having spent my first three years at Acadia anywhere else. The people who live there grow as passionate about it as they do the school and miss it when they leave. Now, with the new renovations, being a resident in Cutten is only going to get better. It's a very comfortable home away from home, and if you make a decision to live there, I can guarantee you will not regret it." (Kyle Steele, Acadia Alumnus and Cutten's last House President 2006/2007)

"Dennis House produced the most positive and exciting memories of my time at Acadia - I lived in Dennis for my entire undergraduate career, and loved every minute of it! Dennis is perfectly located right next to meal hall, and residents enjoy some of the best views on campus from its spacious floor lounges. D-House residents are known for their strong community (celebrated annually during Dennis Pride Week), their powerhouse Green Machine intramural teams and their contagious Welcome Week cheers. With its many double rooms and a yearly influx of first-year students, Dennis has a distinctive energy and spirit which, in my opinion, are unmatched by any other house on campus. Enjoy your stay!"   (Kevin Morash, 4th year Biology major, Senior Resident Assistant 2011/12, Dennis House)

Resident's View

"When I first moved into Roy Jodrey Hall, I had one impression: quiet. Here is a building, reserved for upper year students, where you can imagine yourself studying and being productive without distraction. However, first impressions can be deceiving: hidden beneath its calm environment is a group of students who have been around the block once or twice but who nonetheless enjoy the convenience and community that residence provides. Students in other residences often refer to Roy Jodrey as their retirement home, but rest assured that we have a bit more fun than bingo and square dancing. One's experience in Roy Jodrey is what you make of it: whether you want the privacy of a suite, or the comfort of the building's double beds, you will find a place within this welcoming, but not overbearing, environment. My two years in Roy Jodrey have been amongst my most productive but, also, amongst my most enjoyable here at Acadia; that's a combination that's hard to beat in my eyes.”

 "Seminary House (or “Sem”) is a beautiful building with an amazing history. Built in 1878, Sem is the oldest operating residence in Canada. It is a registered national historic site, having been the place where, in 1884, a Seminary student named Clara Belle Marshall became the first woman in the British Empire to graduate with a Bachelor of Arts degree! Sem’s rooms are spacious with high ceilings and big windows. A number lucky students even have hardwood floors and pristine views of the Bay of Fundy, home to the highest tides in the world! Choose to live in Sem and you’ll find the walk back to your room is often accompanied by the sounds of any number of talented music students practicing their instruments! To top it all off, Sem is host to an annual Haunted House which draws guests from across campus and around the town of Wolfville! Frankly, I can’t imagine a more interesting place to live!" (Max Boulet, Resident of Seminary House, 2011/12)

Resident's View

 "Deciding to live in War Memorial House, or “Barrax” as we who live here prefer to call it, has been the best choice that I have made at Acadia. I believe that one’s success in university relies heavily on the support of others, whether it is academic, emotional, or social. Through my experiences in Barrax, I’ve seen firsthand how living in residence provides this network of support and I feel Barrax has provided it to me in a way no others could. Barrax is the perfect sized residence in which to form a close-knit community; everyone in the building knows everyone else, and your section mates really become your family away from home. I also love the location of Barrax, as it is very close to the gym and my classes, which is very important to me. I’ve formed friendships in Barrax that I will keep for the rest of my life, and I’ve grown and matured as an individual through my experiences living here." (Ryan McKeough, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, 2nd year Kinesiology major, Resident Assistant 2007/08, War Memorial House)

"Stepping onto the Acadia campus and into the doors of Whitman House (or Tully, as it is affectionately called) three years ago was like leaving one family only to instantly become part of another. My years there were filled with so much fun, friends, and support that I would not have had in the same way had I not lived in this building. It was my honour to serve as Tully’s House President in the 2010/2011 academic year, as I got to continue some of the great traditions and events Tully has maintained over the years, of which there are many. Some of my best memories of Acadia took place within Tully’s ancient walls! If you are looking for an aesthetically beautiful building which is filled with an amazing spirit and sense of community, I would look no further than Whitman House!" (Carolyn McKee, Whitman House President, 2010/11)
