3 College Junior

Academics: Some of the professors are really great and understanding with their students. But, some of the university requirements that we have to take don't make sense. Why take these extra classes when they won't pertain to our future careers? Having the university credits just makes it so we have to stay longer and pay more money.

Diversity: We have a lot of diversity on campus, ranging from ethnic, sexual and economic backgrounds. This is a very accepting campus, and people aren't afraid to believe what they believe or be who they truly are.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: I don't notice the drug scene, but I'm sure there are drugs within the student population.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I would chose my school again because even though it is in a suburban area it has a feeling of being in its own world. Also the professors are very understand and helpful if you need it which makes them easier to approach and talk to. The class sizes are very small which is great because you get to know the professor because they are trying to help you and care if you pass or fail. They are invested in the learning process of there students, which makes it more helpful to know that some of them do care about the well being of their students.

Health & Safety: Personally, I feel very safe on campus. However, I'm not sure of what public safety does in case of an incident.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Overall, I love Arcadia. The class sizes are small, so you really get to know your professors. They want to help you succeed and will do anything from write a letter of recommendation for you to edit essays for other classes.

Overall Experience: I do not know much about career prospects so I cannot give any information on it.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Freshman housing is a little bit difficult since there are no kitchens in the traditional dorms

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I am not big on athletics, so I do not know much about the program nor did I participate in any sports.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Choosing to come to Arcadia was one of the greatest decisions I've made. The education is uniquely global, and the small community really helps me to succeed.

Campus Housing: The freshmen dorm rooms and the apartments in Oak Summet are not worth the price that is asked for by the students for room and board. The apartments aren't updated at all (only a select few are updated), and definitely isn't worth $9000-$10000. It should be that price for all 3 or 4 students who are in the apartment to split. The elevators sound like they could break at any moment (and are known to break down and sometimes students get stuck in them).

Athletics: The athletics at our school is a work in progress. There are a good chunk of students who are athletes at the university and they really love their sport. But, Arcadia isn't a very athletic oriented school. Most students are either in class when games are going, or they don't want to have to walk up from Oak for the game. But, when it gets down to it, our school supports our athletes, especially the basketball team.

Health & Safety: The safety and security on campus is really good. There are swipes to get into all the dorm buildings and off campus housing provided by the school. I feel very safe on campus because it is mostly well lit and there are call boxes that are everywhere, and if you ever feel unsafe, just push the button and public safety will be on their way.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Some of the professors are really great! They go out of their way to help you and make sure you are understanding everything that is going on in class. With the class sizes being so small, you are really able to form a bond with your professors and the other people in your class. Other professors aren't good at communicating ideas with students and have difficulties seeing that their students are struggling with something sometimes.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The value of the degree that you receive here are really great. Arcadia has made a name for itself in the area and it has made a good name. The career center is super great on campus! They go over your resume with you, conduct mock interviews if you are nervous about interviewing for possible internships or jobs after you graduate. They also have a great Career Fair every semester that really helps bring the companies to the students.

Party Scene: All bars and clubs are in Philly for most part. Closest ones are like 10 minutes away and best are in center Philly like 20 minutes away.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Parties are good if you are at the right one. Tower parties and sports team parties are the way to go. The people who say they think party scene sucks just do not go to parties and do not know the life.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Real good. Cannot get better bang for buck anywhere I know of.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: everyone gets a long for the most part

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: no on is in danger unless you put yourself in danger

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: average, only been there once but it was fine when i went to health services

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Professors are mostly easy to connect with and they help a lot because of small class size.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Sports events are cool to be at. Soccer and basketball are the games to be at.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Will not find a better school academically. Sports are fun here. Parties are good.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Very safe campus with constant public safety watch

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.
