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

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.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Philly is better for a variety of foods/options

3 College Freshman

Local Area: I'm not exactly impressed with Glenside. It's a cute town but, Philly is really where all the fun stuff happens.

4 College Freshman

Academics: My major has a lot of great professors who actually studied the things they teach about.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food is pretty good for the most part from the school's dining services but, some days not so much. I would prefer to eat out more but, I am trying to save money.

Greek Life: There is no Greek Life.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: We do not have real police officers on campus. We do not know the way in which Public Safety is trained here, which makes me feel like I would be better off protecting myself if I needed help.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I feel as though it was hard to get the information I needed and I never personally met with my assigned adviser which is frustrating.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: the town of glenside is boring, got to take a bus to the mall in willow grove. or you could spend money for a train to philly which never happens

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: not the best. only chinese, pizzaz, and wawa. but hey its better than the on-campus food!!

3 College Freshman

Athletics: well being d3 is fine but i wish there was a football team. no one goes to any sporting events, which is a thing that people at other schools do to all come together like a big family. the fitness center is half decent, i use it all the time but after new years everyone has their resolutions for about a month so its really crowded because of how small it is. once they leave it is good again.

4 College Freshman

Academics: only good thing about the school=academics. most teachers are always there to help you in and out of class. and your advisor is a great help as well.

1 College Freshman

Campus Food: the food is horrible. no healthy options at all. everything is drenched in oil and fats. i always get nauseous and i rarely eat until i am about to pass out then i shove a slice of fattening pizza down my throat.

1 College Freshman

Party Scene: i am the type that likes the party scene and going out to socialize but sadly i picked the worst school for that. unless you're on a sports team then there is nothing. no greek life so no college ave = no parties = boring on weekends = i go home every single weekend because my dog entertains me more than arcadia.

College Freshman

Health & Safety: its a very small campus so therefore not bad things happen.. i usually feel safe unless i walk around at night alone altering watching american horror story..

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: well you have two choices pretty much: oak apartments which is affiliated with the school or towers which is not. oak is grungy but towers is really nice, like a hotel type of feel, but very very very expensive

3 College Freshman

Administration: its not like it is strict really?

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.
