Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Sports are not a big thing at Arcadia. There is a team for almost every sport, except football and cheerleading. The most popular sports to watch on the commons are soccer and lacrosse. There are several intramural teams, and Quidditch was recently introduced as a sport. Sports are not as big at Arcadia as they are at most schools, but there are opportunities available for almost anyone, and teams can always be created if you get enough people together.
