What is your overall opinion of this school?

From my year of experience at Arcadia, I have found it to be very rewarding with minor bumps along the way. This university has a lot to offer in the matters of academics, diversity, and willingness to learn. Although, bland campus food and the atrocious bathrooms and occasional mouse sighting are just a few of the downfalls of this university. As well as the lack of student activities on the weekend. Although, with many of the other aspects this college has to offer those few downfalls can be overlooked.

Academically speaking, Arcadia University is a great school. There are many opportunities for study. And the study abroad programs are exceptional. Class sizes are small and faculty is always available and willing to help. There are over 50 Student Organizations to join.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I had not planned on attending Arcadia. It was...basically a back up. Confident in my academia, I applied to quite a few colleges within a few hours drive of my home, and I was accepted into all of them. But, the price tags were a bit too huge for our family's budget. I do have to hand it to them (despite my mediocre rating), Arcadia did a really great job swaying my vote, tuition wise. So here I am, stuck with all of the Harry Potter enthusiasts who only attend this college for our Hogwarts-esque castle, dealing with an overpriced meal plan that pays for below-par prison slop, and tip toeing around a cleaned-once-a-year dormitory bathroom with enough hair clogging the drains to fashion a sculpture of a small cat. Really though, the only reason I have not scurried out of here, is the amazing biology department. Despite being a small (kind of gross) campus, with an even smaller student body, Arcadia has picked out the best of biology professors in the area. Accompanying that, the small class sizes, especially in subjects of sciences, really allows for interaction between students and instructors, where any confusion can be addressed immediately. So, I give Arcadia the points where it matters most, which is the education. But really, being such a tiny campus, more should be done in terms of non-academia and the campus-living experience!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Arcadia University is a close-knit community. Most students know each other, and while that may give it a homey feel to some, it could create a sense of claustrophobia for others. It's a great place to get involved in the community. Clubs are fairly easy to create. Professors are generally available and have frequent office hours.

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.
