It's the start of the 2019-2020 Academic Year! Here is a list of Acadia Technology Services' Top 10 List of Favourite Things.

Acadia University Technology Services staff ushered in Cyber Security Awareness Month with some new swag. 

On June 20, Acadia University and its partner institutions won a prestigious national award in recognition of an innovative collaboration. 

Technology Services is pleased to announce the launch of its online SharePoint Service. This cross-Atlantic Higher-Education Institute initiative has been on-going for several months. We engaged project champions to help us create, preview and roll-out Acadia departmental SharePoint sites. 


Prospective students now have a whole new way of experiencing Acadia University. Acadia launched a new Virtual Tour that invites prospective students and their parents to follow “a day in the life” of Acadia students through photos, immersive photospheres, video, and text.

 Unlike many virtual tours, Acadia’s tour is grouped around scenes and ideas instead of forcing visitors to navigate from building to building. Prospective students are invited to explore slices of life representing residences, dining, classrooms, fitness, volunteering, and more. Photospheres welcome prospective students to view the inside of spaces like a classroom, gym, Wheelock Dining Hall, residence room, and more, whether the student is using a computer, phone, or VR goggles.

The Virtual Tour website was created by Acadia University’s Technology Services Team, working in partnership with Enrolment Services. Students, faculty, and staff also contributed their time to appear in new photos and videos.

The Virtual Tour is now available, and will be incorporated into Enrolment Services websites and communications in December and January. Prospective students are invited to visit virtualtour.acadiau.ca to experience campus for themselves.

Acadia Technology Services is pleased to announce recipient of the 2017 Chipman Rose Memorial Award. This year’s recipient is Katherine Waterbury. Katherine began a Bachelor of Community Development degree as part of Environmental and Sustainability Studies.

Acadia Technology Services established the Chipman Rose Memorial Award in 2016 to honour two former Technology Services employees, Lynn Chipman and Kim Rose, both of whom, unfortunately, lost battles with cancer. The award is given, annually, to a female student from the Annapolis Valley, entering Acadia University.

October is Cyber Security Awareness Month. It is a time to promote safe practices around users’ activities online.
