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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Arcadia! Everyone on campus is kind and considerate and always willing to partake in conversation, whether its academic or casual. I am close with many of my professors, which is just one advantage to the small class sizes. The campus is beautiful, especially in the fall and spring. Having a castle on campus is really cool, too. There is a very healthy political awareness on campus and plenty of opportunity to get involved both on campus and in the outer community. I have had a great three years here and will be sad to graduate this upcoming spring.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When the incoming freshmen arrive, you can tell who's going to stay, and who will leave. Those who leave think it's too boring. There are no parties, not many people, and not much to do around town. The people that stay, like me, couldn't imagine going anywhere else. This is a place where quiet nerds and queer folks can feel at ease. I've met some of the best people in my life here and campus really and truly feels like home. Arcadia is a movie night in with pizza and friends compared to a night out on the town.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The place is not the best place to go if you are looking for a college that has good food, housing, or education. The way the education system is organized does not allow for depth in any studies. The focus seems to be on the exams and not applying what you learn to what your career may be. It feels like a high school. If you wind up attending this university and wish to find depth in your work I urge you to personally go to all of your teachers and ask for insight into the specific class. Also, the university has a meal schedule which does not cater to everyone eating schedules.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Arcadia University is a great college to go to because you become more independent when you are living on campus as you focus on getting a college degree based on what you are majoring in. You can participate in extracurricular activities that are happening on campus, such as joining a religious club based on your religion to take your mind off of your schoolwork. There are a lot of events that occur outside of Haber Green, where you can play games and get free food from concession stands. You get to socialize with your roommates and other students that live on campus and commute to this school during events and extracurricular activities.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

With pleasant surroundings, very approachable faculty, very good dining options, and such recreational options as regular film screenings and opportunities to attend concerts, Arcadia University is not only a nice place to go for an education, but is also clearly run by people who care about student enjoyment. I do not regret the time that I have spent there in the least.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As everything in life does, Arcadia has its pros and cons. Arcadia is not as diverse as I had been told when I went to Arcadia's fall open house. The food is not that great but, there are definitely moments were I am impressed with campus food. At times the food is either too greasy or is bland and unappealing, There have also bee issues with t pests in the older housing units. Social life at Arcadia sucks in all honesty-- Find some good friends and stick together. While Arcadia has a lot of different events the attendance for them is not always great. Knight Hall and Oak Summit Apartments are a lot better than traditional housing. In my experience, most of the Housing staff are unhelpful and at times rude. On the bright side, Arcadia is located in a great area and is close to the big city of brotherly love; Philadelphia. It is easy to get around campus because it is small and all facilities are open late and students also have access to various local stores and shopping centers. Arcadia has an excellent study abroad program and encourages its students to explore, learn, and travel the world. I love that Arcadia is a smaller university because it allows the professors to get to know their students better not be seen as a 'number. Many of the professors at Arcadia are not only open-minded but also, are experts in their fields and encourage students to ask questions and come to office hours. My work study job on campus has prepared me for a career and helped me develop strong leadership skills. One more great thing about Arcadia is the various extracurricular activities and the involvement in the (surrounding) community. I like that we have the opportunity to get involved with the community,

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Arcadia is a very personal school. Very small class size, a lot of one-on-one attention. Limited resources, but I've learned more in two years than in all my other schooling combined. Arcadia has a great campus, and really accepting students and professors. The surrounding area is really nice, safe, and a fun place to go to school. The "party scene" is not as huge as other schools, but we bring the party to us on the weekends. Go AU Knights!
