3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Arcadia isn't a very sporty school, however if you're into ultimate Frisbee and quidditch then you've come to the right place.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I feel the sports are taken way too seriously especially since this is a division 3 school.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Some sports are more popular than others but sometimes you can catch a really good game and people are hyped up at them. Basketball is pretty fun to watch.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: So many to choose from. Also, super easy to create your own.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: athletics are what the school probably does the best

Sports are not a big thing at Arcadia. There is a team for almost every sport, except football and cheerleading. The most popular sports to watch on the commons are soccer and lacrosse. There are several intramural teams, and Quidditch was recently introduced as a sport. Sports are not as big at Arcadia as they are at most schools, but there are opportunities available for almost anyone, and teams can always be created if you get enough people together.
