Health & Safety:
Glenside is a really safe neighborhood.

Our campus is gorgeous with its castle and some of the older buildings on campus. Some of our modern buildings are fantastic too such as our fairly new student center that is environmentally friendly.

If you live in the on-campus upperclassmen apartments you are really about a ten minute walk off campus. If you choose to drive to campus it is really hard to find a spot in the morning and the middle of the day. It has been especially bad this year.

There are some really good food places nearby such as Elcy's Cafe, Anne's Kitchen Table and Jasmine's Chinese restaurant.

Glenside is really pretty and has a nice feel. If the suburbs are not your thing it is really easy to get into center city from a ten minute walk to a train station and about a twenty minute train ride.

They can be a little strict about certain things, but there is a strong level of fairness and reasonableness.

There is a lot of diversity of campus from financial backgrounds, to international students, and sexual orientation. Arcadia is very open to diversity and open to accommodations.
College Senior 2013-10-31T18:42:30Z
I live on campus because I receive a lot of financial aid as a resident, but I have many friends who live off campus, and they have really like their off campus housing and it is really nice from a visitors standpoint.

My major is Global Media/Media Industries. Arcadia is the only college that I have found that offers something like this. It is called a MAP or Majors Abroad Program, and requires a year abroad getting more in depth training in my major in a global context. It is a really great major and my advisors have helped me take advantage of it and help me find opportunities like internships to help further my learning in this field.
College Senior 2013-10-31T18:40:21Z
I love my program. I would do it all over again. I do worry about getting a job in my field, but I know that I am just as prepared if not any more so than others in the communications field and I have a step-up thanks to my unique experience.

Guys & Girls:
There is a large girl to guy ratio with a larger number of females. This has been changing over the past few years as more guys attend.

Arcadia is far from a party school. This is reflected in both the 'party atmosphere' and the guidelines. We are not a dry campus and students over 21 are allowed alcohol as long as no students are under 21 are there. This does not mean that there is not underage drinking though.

If you are in the upperclassman housing options such as Oak Summit Apartments or Knight Hall, they are really nice. There is lots of room and in Oak students have access to their own kitchens, bathrooms, and laundry rooms.

I have had an amazing time in my last four years here. Thanks to Arcadia's focus on Global Education I have managed to spend a year and a half abroad. While at our Glenside campus, there are plenty of activities and clubs to join. The faculty and staff are small have a really strong focus on helping the students here succeed, both academically and professionally.

The actual parking for campus is okay, there are usually always spots, even if they aren't as close to the buildings. The price in order to park is outrageous for single semesters because it's the same for full year parking. Freshmen aren't allowed to have cars unless they have a special circumstance and commuters aren't allowed to park at the school's apartment/off campus living.
College Junior 2013-10-23T15:35:29Z
The housing on campus is average, I love how close all the options are to campus if they aren't directly on campus. There are always hall activities going on. I enjoy living in Oak Summit, where each apartment has a full kitchen, bathroom and laundry room.
College Junior 2013-10-23T15:18:30Z
Overall I think the sports at Arcadia are popular and important to the campus life. We don't have a football team though, but we have intramural that anyone can be a part of.

Poor on campus, 10 minute walk from apartment, I leave car in apartment lot

Its seasonable. The seasons change and there are all 4 in moderate intensity.
College Senior 2013-10-08T22:23:11Z
Most of the buildings are old but some are newly renovated and clean and spacious like the library and the student center.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
