3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: We have a higher rate of girls on campus versus boys. Most of the boys already have girlfriends. There are a lot of eclectic people on campus, and if they aren't then they are mostly athletes. There is a distance between the arts and the athletics.

4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: It's still predominantly females but everyone has their own personality.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The guys and girls are nice overall.

But guys will be guys and girls will be girls, we all know what that's like. You'll find people who haven't grown up yet and think this is like the next level of highs cool and you'll find people that take college way too seriously. As diverse as everyone seems however, you can sort people out into two or three groups and I suppose that's because the school is so small.

As far as hotness. I don't find very many people fashionable, nor very good looking however a lot of people have declared admiration for people I don't find to be more than average so I mean it's up to you to decide. I'd say no one is gorgeous or 'modelesque' but everyone is cute enough (especially on the inside). The one guy I must say is a stand out is Jay Hertz; it's a shame he's a senior and I won't get to hang out with him but he's way too cool and extremely handsome.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: For the most part they're very friendly and have a wide variety of interests; also very silly. But no one's perfect.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Great college friends. Girls and boys are both nice for the most part

The students at Arcadia are all very unique. Many are focused on academics and their fields of study. There is a larger percentage of girls due to Arcadia's beginnings as a women's school, but it has become more open and diverse since then, encouraging men to attend the University. There are many different kinds of people on campus. Socializing at Arcadia is great because there are so many different kinds of people. There is no typical student, which leads to some interesting experiences and the chance to meet even more interesting people.
