4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Towers apartments are just across the road. Everyone I know that lives there seems really happy; it's definitely safe: gated, with safety and maintenance staff on duty 24/7. Other than that, I don't know too much.

Off-Campus Dining: Jerzee's is really good. Queen Sushi is best if you're looking for chinese food. There's a lot of pub/bar like restaurants, and then, of course, you have your chain restaurants. Worst case, though, there's always Philly.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: For the most part, the strictness is pretty average for most things. Arcadia does really push its Honor Code, however.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I only receive merit aid, and no need based aid; the merit aid is pretty good though.

2 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Arcadia really isn't a party school. You can find something if you try hard enough, but it's honestly easier to just go to another school. Most "parties" seem to be smallish get-togethers, with alcohol, and maybe some drinking games, depending.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The staff in the dining hall and chat are generally super nice; they truly are great people. The food at the dining hall is usually pretty bad though, and the chat isn't much better. The one benefit the chat has is that it's made-to-order, so, at least it's hot, but it's little variety.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The cost of living on campus is astronomical, but the residence halls are pretty well maintained and clean. Most people go home on the weekends and there are a lot of commuter students, so it can get a little lonely/boring.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: they just fired a dean everyone loved and don't use our tuition wisely

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: school is way over priced

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: the library computers take a long time to start

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: at the the dining hall there is quantity, but the chat has quality

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It's decent. There are worse/smaller dorm rooms. Just don't be the unlucky one in the overbooked triple

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: It's cute and little. Very local

4 College Sophomore

Administration: It all depends on who you're around, except when it comes to drugs/alcohol.

1 College Sophomore

Greek Life: THERE IS NO GREEK LIFE

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I think that some of the times of it are just inconvenient. And they won't see you unless you have an appointment after 12:30. I was told there I could go any time and when I was really really ill, they responded with "just come back tomorrow at 8:30am" and refused to see me. Once I actually went though the help was great. The practitioners that come in are wonderful too.

1 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Don't come here expecting a party every week. There really are no places on campus to party. For those who like to party, they either complain about the lack thereof or they take SEPTA to Temple University.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The quality of education is great.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The social life/ scene here is terrible.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I am only a freshman, not sure about everything yet.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Some of the dorm policies are absolutely ridiculous! We are not allowed to have mace, weapons, toy/model weapons, etc. Someone was written up for a toy gun which I think is stupid, save the write ups for more serious issues.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: From what I have heard off campus housing is way better.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Not a lot of school spirit/ pep rallies and things of that nature in my opinion.

1 College Freshman

Party Scene: I have gone to one good School hosted party/dance. The social life here is why I think so many students specifically Freshmen transfer.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I am highly unpleased with the traditional residence halls and all of the campus housing is overpriced.

Grey Towers Castle
Grey Towers Castle
Grey Towers Castle Grey Towers Castle Arcadia's Grey Towers Castle is possibly the University's most unique and special building. The castle was built in the late 19th century and has been declared a historic landmark. Freshmen can dorm in the castle, and many events and activities take place there, as well.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Arcadia has a great close-knit community of students that makes everyone feel very welcome. It is a great University for personalized attention, with professors who are all very helpful and knowledgeable in their areas and work well with students. In addition to their dedication, most professors have the highest level of recognized achievement in their fields, so they know what they are talking about. Outside of classroom activities and involvement, there are also many study abroad opportunities, where students can meet people from all over the world.

The best way to have an amazing experience is to get involved right away. While some feel that Arcadia does not offer much in the way of partying or crazy nightlife, it has other perks, including its small community of people passionate about what they are doing. Get involved, talk to people, and you'll have a great college experience.
