4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The housing off campus is not to far away that you need a car to get to campus everyday but its better than living on campus

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There's a nice diner across the street that is open all the time and there are more just a block or two away

4 College Freshman

Local Area: Theres a little town that has fun things to do and the train station is super close so you can go to the city when you want to

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: You meet new people that if you commuted you may have never met because they wouldn't be living next to you.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I hear about parties that occur within the sports teams but not really just big parties on campus

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Everyone is different. It allows a wider range of friends to be made in all of the different social areas on campus

3 College Junior

Local Area: The location of my school is in Glenside, Pennsylvania which is a suburb of Philadelphia. The City of Brotherly Love is only about 30-45 minutes away from Glenside. In Philadelphia, there is so much more to do than in Glenside, which is a small town. There's not much to do off campus but there is a Wal-Mart and shopping center including a movie theater about 15-20 minutes up the highway. The staff members and student government at Arcadia do their best to provide as much entertainment and activities as possible to keep the students occupied.

3 College Junior

Administration: The campus strictness is pretty fair. Students under the age of 21 are not allowed to buy alcohol for themselves but if their roommate who may be older than they are has alcohol, they are able to partake as long as they are the age of 20 about to turn 21.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: Glenside is a great walking destination. A lot of eateries to choose from and Philly is a train ride away.

Off-Campus Dining: Walking distance to the heart of Glenside is not that bad. There are variety of shops to choose from and a lot of these places offer student discounts.

Athletics: The athletics scene is not a big deal on campus, besides basketball games. The school's spirit could be a bit better.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Public safety makes sure that everyone is safe, but they do not constantly watch your every move. There are quiet hours that residents have to follow, but some people stay in dorms for a while longer even after visiting hours.

1 College Freshman

Greek Life: There is no Greek life so not surprisingly, there is not that many parties that take place on campus.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Only downsides are that you have communal bathrooms (unless you're in Knight Hall) and that not all rooms have air conditioning.

Majors: The Political Science program is amazing. The teachers are passionate and committed to their students.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: The scholarship process went through easily. I have the Distinguished Scholarship, and it's a lot of money, but it's a miniscule amount in comparison to the school's giant tuition bill. I might have had a good application process, but I did not get the financial aid I needed.

5 College Freshman

Local Area: Lots of small business with grocery within walking distance from campus.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Depending on your major you will have a lot of work but it's okay because it is mostly required classes to help you better understand your major.

4 College Sophomore

1 College Sophomore

Greek Life: We have no Greek life wish we did though.

Party Scene: There could be better parties on our campus instead of having students go to other schools to go to a good party

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.
