3 College Junior

Nightlife: I'm not really social but when I am I have to go off campus.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: Arcadia is a very small and dry campus. While they have some nice things to do at night (sometimes), a lot of kids go off campus if they want to party or enjoy the nightlife. And the transportation is pretty good as well, with a lot of bus stops near us and the Septa system a 15 minute walk from campus.

2 College Freshman

Nightlife: It is very boring here at Arcadia University. The only thing you can actually do at night is drink in your dorms with your friends; but you have to be careful or you'll get in trouble.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: The parties can be far away which either requires walking or a DD

3 College Junior

Nightlife: There's nothing really special about the nightlife - kind of typical.

Arcadia is not a huge party school, but parties can be found. The close proximity to Philadelphia leads to a good time any day of the week. Nightlife is more of a weekend thing on campus, but one can always find something to do. This is not a school for being drunk and crazy all the time, though there certainly are a few people who do just that. Arcadia is more laid-back than anything else, but the occasional off-campus house party is not unusual. Most people just like to hang out with a few friends or take a trip to the city for fun.
