Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The campus is mainly girls, but there are plenty of guys to be found, too. Most students come from an upper-class background, but that does not include everyone. The majority of the student population is Democratic or liberal, but there are exceptions to everything. The most diverse thing at Arcadia is the personalities and interests of the students, rather than their race, sex, or religious backgrounds.
