Party Scene

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I've been around the Temple before and they throw the best parties. But if Arcadia does throw one, they are usually fun and free! It's not really a party school and that's fine with me, as I'm not a big partier. Though this can be a deal breaker for some who want more fun.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Personally, I don't have any desire for a campus with never-ending parties, so Arcadia for me is a good fit. Generally, parties of some sort go on each weekend at either Oak Summit or Towers apartments, as well at another close university more well-known for their nightlife.

1 College Sophomore

Party Scene: It's a small liberal arts school outside of Philly, of course this school doesn't compete with larger universities. The party scene is practically nonexistent and definitely isn't a reason to attend this school, but it also isn't difficult to get to a college/city where parties are common.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Parties are small and usually thrown by the same people. They're not too bad if you're drinking but if you go sober you'll most likely be bored. It's a good time to meet new people and since the school is so small you'll probably run into them more than once.

Party Scene: You have to make the most of arcadia's dance parties. Other than that you have to make you own party which is just a get together and play music with drinking games. Unless you go to the basketball house.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Arcadia is not a huge party school, but parties can be found. The close proximity to Philadelphia leads to a good time any day of the week. Nightlife is more of a weekend thing on campus, but one can always find something to do. This is not a school for being drunk and crazy all the time, though there certainly are a few people who do just that. Arcadia is more laid-back than anything else, but the occasional off-campus house party is not unusual. Most people just like to hang out with a few friends or take a trip to the city for fun.
