What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, Arcadia is a very quiet school that has a few things going on during the week. The bigger events happen on the weekends. The academics are great and the sporting events as well. Most of the time, if you want something fun to happen, you must go plan it yourself with your friends. This is a very safe campus at any time of the day.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Arcadia University is a comfortable little community that makes you feel at home. You can always feel free to be yourself entirely and still be accepted. The small class size allows for personal interaction with professors, and you get the most out of the class. The city of Philadelphia is easily accessible.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Arcadia is a very selective school. There are certain cliques that form here, and if you do not fit within one of them, it is made clear. Academic advisers are not helpful and barely available. The food here is rarely edible, occasionally once a month there is something we all can stomach. The academic chemistry program is not rigorous nor does it follow any regular chemistry patter.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I honestly loved my time at Arcadia University! It truly was a home away from home. Not only did I get the chance to live in the castle on campus, but I also got to travel to Ireland and Belize through Arcadia's amazing programs. Though not every class I took I was interested in, the courses that were related to my major really excited me and I gained a lot of practical experience in my field. Overall I highly recommend Arcadia University to anyone who wants to feel safe in an intellectually welcoming community.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion is that the college has its drawbacks but overall is a great place. Drawbacks include the fact that some facilities aren't always the cleanest, and many people complain about the food and other amenities here, but I feel it has many perks such as the many opportunities to study abroad, small class sizes, and many chances to get involved.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, Arcadia is a great university. The class sizes are small and intimate, and the teachers play close attention to you and your progress throughout the class and the semester. The campus is medium sized and the surrounding town is sort of dead and spread out. It's better to create your own fun which Arcadia tries to provide for you. Not much of a party area either but you can find them if you really want to. The food is okay, not the best. The Chat, which is another food area besides the dining hall, has the best overall food. If you want things with taste, you should just make your own food. But, I still think it's a great school to come to especially if you want to focus on purely academics.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Arcadia is a great school. Everyone is friendly and open to everything. Class a tough but lots of opportunity for help. There are a lot a extra activities to participate in. We always love to go to games and just hang out on the weekends. The school does host a lot of events on campus, like spring fling, which has lots performers and venders and than we magicians that perform. All is at no extra charge. It's a great learning environment and the teachers are very easy to talk to.

What are the academics like at your school?

I know 3/4 of the history department by name and they know me, by name as well. I can go to any professor's office and ask for help. We have a great Learning Resource Network (LRN) where you can go for tutoring, a great support network for students with disabilities, and I have never been in a class with more then 25 students. When you study abroad all of your classes will count, when you come back to America.
