What is your overall opinion of this school?

This is a cute school. It has excellent science and art programs for students. This professors want their students to learn and succeed. The campus is quite small and the people are absolutely amazing. I have never met such socially aware people with academic drive. The environment makes you want to learn and also enjoy your time.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The Good: Arcadia is a school with amazing professors and opportunities that I have not seen at other schools. The faculty in my department are really dedicated to the students and push for them to succeed. They are always willing to meet with me after class to talk about assignments or to just chat about whatever and their office hours are really flexible so there is no need to worry about juggling a crazy schedule. On top of really amazing academics, Arcadia offers many study abroad programs which have been useful for my International Studies major. I started my schooling here by going to London for a full semester through their FYSAE (First Year Study Abroad) program. In my opinion, the program itself needed to have a few kinks worked out in terms of how they housed the students but other than that it was a once in a lifetime experience that I will never ever forget. In my spring semester, I was able to go to Vietnam for a week through the school's Preview program. I learned all about the southeast Asian culture while also having an awesome time in a country I would not have traveled to otherwise. The program is cheap at just $595 and included airfare! The Bad: The food at Arcadia is not too great. Sometimes it tastes weird or it is cooked wrong. Under cooked pasta, for example, is pretty common. Another issue I had had is the administration and their lack of caring for the adjunct professors. The school has hired many adjunct professors in order to curb costs (as many schools have been doing in recent years). The bright side of this is that many of our students have organized groups in order to vouch for the adjuncts so that they get fairly paid. My Opinion: Arcadia is an amazing school with loads of opportunities for those who value global experiences and stellar academics. It has truly helped me blossom into the travel bug academic that I am today and has helped me gain a lot of insight in the world in which we live in today.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It’s a really pretty campus with fairly good academics and okay financial aid. That’s where it ends. No real events or social life. Everyone is super cliquey. Honestly, I had more fun in high school driving to a funeral than I have collectively in my time here. Both myself and 2 other girls on my floor are transferring after this semester. I don’t think anyone actually wants to be here. Save yourself the time and just go to Temple.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall Arcadia is a good school. Classes are small so you can develop a relationship with your professors. Every professor I've had has been really helpful and genuinely cared about my progress as a student. Campus facilities are nice, and there's always something going on. We have an active theater and music department, and one of our clubs always has events every Friday and Saturday, so something is always going on. Dining hall food is usually a hit or miss, but the Chat food is alright.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Arcadia University is an excellent school and although it wasn’t my first choice of school, is a school that I’m proud to attend. The small campus is very well-kept and is excellent for walking or, if you’re feeling ambitious, biking. (There are two steep hills.) The class sizes are small which allows for a closer relationship with both classmates and professors.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Although Arcadia University has its flaws, like other schools, its community is extremely tight-knit and welcoming. Students really feel like their part of a big family here. Everyone is friendly and teachers are available and dependable. There is a beautiful campus with a huge green grass area, and no one can miss the beautiful architecture of the castle, inside and out.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The professor/student relationship is great, however, everything else is absolutely terrible. Two food options: dining hall and chat, both terrible- moldy fruits and veggies, uncooked meat, and no variety. Workers in dining facilities are incredibly disrespectful and tend to close the facilities up to an hour before they are supposed to. I have made amazing friends here and had incredible professors but unfortunately the school itself is so dreadful. Little to no student activities are held, I went a month without hot water in my suite, and terrible rodent problems throughout all campus buildings. Now, the president has fired over 10 quality professors and raised tuition. The professors and students here deserve better. I highly recommend not attending this university.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Arcadia University is a very boring school. If you don't actively search out ways to have fun and get engaged, you will not be able to have a good time. There are a lot of opportunities, though. We have multiple career fairs, constant resume help, and other connections and resources to help students find jobs and figure out their future path.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of Arcadia University is great. I like the human resources around me. I go to the writing center when it comes to writing essays or research papers. Also, I love going to the library to focus on my assignments without distractions. Especially, upstairs because it's so quiet and everybody is just chilling and relaxing while getting their work done.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As a current student of Arcadia University I am thrilled with my college. Professors are always accessible and caring of students' needs. Small class sizes are perfect for optimal learning and personalized attention. Arcadia has a beautiful campus and a very active social life with many activities for students to attend. Arcadia has a huge number of clubs for students to be a part of. Overall, I couldn't ask for a better school for me.
