4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There weren't a lot of options when I was looking - but if you are looking to live with roommates, there are more options and price goes down quickly. Lots of students live in the Towers or just up the road.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are lots of places - more within a short drive - and they advertise and honor student discounts.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: The only real interaction I've had with administration (I live off-campus) is as it relates to hate-speech. The administration is very strict about enforcing open speech.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: As a graduate student, I received scholarship assistance for my program, in addition to an easy federal financial aid process.

College Sophomore

Party Scene: I don't live on campus - I'm a graduate student, so most of my socializing with classmates take place off-campus, in homes or at Keswick Tavern.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Chat food is good - a lot of it is fresh and prepared-to-order. They have a good variety of options for vegetarian eating as well.

College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Campus housing looks nice from the outside, but I've never lived on campus so can't rate it.

1 College Freshman

Greek Life: There is not Greek life.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The performance is okay, however people who love sports will attend all they can and the re is definitely a good crowd forbbasketball

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The towers are the closest off campus housing and it is still a decent distance with the same local areas as the in campus housing.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: it is really easy to catch a bus and go to a restaurant. Michaels is across the street, there are some walking distance pizza and Chinese restaurants.

4 College Freshman

Administration: They care, which is good. The strictness is not bad or good. It is where it's suppose to be.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Just make sure all of your forms are filled out Correctly and way before hand

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: You have to make the most of arcadia's dance parties. Other than that you have to make you own party which is just a get together and play music with drinking games. Unless you go to the basketball house.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The dining hall has a better variety, you can make your own salad as oppose to the chat. Th e dinning hall is all you can eat as well. The menus varies from day to day in the dining hall however pizza is a garauntee. They have pasta, fast food, salad, dessert. The chat is better for quality. The food is hot and you choose how they make it. It's either a deli meal or grill meal. There are more snacks in the chat but the chat is more expensive.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Everyone is squeezed into a room and some can make the most space out of it but there are three people in a room meant for two

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.

4 College Sophomore

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

Grey Towers Castle
Grey Towers Castle

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.
