Party Scene

5 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Everyone goes out and parties every weekend.

2 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Barely any parties. You have to know people to even know about a party if there even is one.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: Haven't really been to any parties because that's just not my scene, and my friends and I just either hang out on campus, or find something else to do.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: It is a dry campus so there probably aren't a lot of parties ON campus. But, there is usually some party going on at off campus housing.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: All bars and clubs are in Philly for most part. Closest ones are like 10 minutes away and best are in center Philly like 20 minutes away.

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.
