Security is good at Arcadia. Students are required to swipe identification cards to enter every building. There are cameras all over campus, and Public Safety is a visible presence every day. They are very helpful when students accidentally lock themselves out of a building or room, although too many lockouts results in a fine. Overall, Arcadia is a very safe campus. There have been instances of theft and alcohol incidents, but they are taken care of quickly and efficiently.
