Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The teachers are great and very helpful. The workload is not extremely heavy and varies depending on the topic of the class. Most teachers give schoolwork every class, but nothing that cannot be done in the given time. The best thing about classes at Arcadia is the small size. Most classes have 20 to 30 people, so there is a lot of attention paid to each student and plenty of opportunities to work closely with teachers.

Teachers are good about making themselves available during office hours and after classes. Take advantage of the small class sizes, as it is much easier to learn and question when there are only a few other people in a class. Teachers at Arcadia are very helpful and will work with you as long as you talk to them and make a visible effort to succeed.
