3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Professors don't always seem passionate about what they are teaching, but they are set on giving us the most they can. However, that most isn't always enough.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Arcadia really pushes us to further our opportunities off campus. They hold career and internship fairs, and offer many resources, like a career office.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Each residence hall will provide a different living experience, but all in all they aren't bad.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: We are a D3 school, so sports aren't a huge part of daily life, but we do have good spirit and support.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: While Arcadia is very unique and supportive and accepting of all, I don't feel very at home there.

2 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Barely any parties. You have to know people to even know about a party if there even is one.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: Professors are normally very helpful and classes are appropriate to your major.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: you can get written up for drugs and alcohol very easily.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Like I said not a party school. It's very expensive for no reason. Housing is okay. Food sucks. Class size is small. There are very strange people on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Bathrooms in the on campus dorms are horrible. The apartments offered for upperclassmen are great. Housing department sucks though.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The only normal people at the school.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Public safety is everywhere and easy to access.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are many LBQT people who attend this school therefore it being full of weirdos. There also are rarely ever parties. Class sizes are small and very interactive. The dorms arnt to bad, but housing department is horrible. Food from the dining hall is disgusting.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: Haven't really been to any parties because that's just not my scene, and my friends and I just either hang out on campus, or find something else to do.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: It is a dry campus so there probably aren't a lot of parties ON campus. But, there is usually some party going on at off campus housing.

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.

4 College Junior

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.

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.
