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.

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.

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.

Its seasonable. The seasons change and there are all 4 in moderate intensity.

Most of the buildings are old but some are newly renovated and clean and spacious like the library and the student center.

I received mostly loans in financial aid which was a deterrent. I suggest learning about interest and the salary of your future career before taking out loans upwards of $25,000.

The social scene is vibrant and students always having something to attend throughout each day.

The facilities are there but YOU have to get involved and take advantage of them. I wish the library were open more hours. It is a beautiful campus with an attractive castle that stands as an invitation. The grounds are well kept and come alive on nice days. In general though it isn't a party school. Naturally the school organizes events. The sports facilities are excellent and if you don't want to play, swim or work out you can always go watch.

The way is paved for an exciting variety of opportunities to study abroad. There are programs available all over the world during spring break, summers and of course school terms. Lots of support and guidance is in place to make the whole experience so much easier, interesting and fun.
In general everyone is accessible and helpful. I have been very happy with my classes and feel that I am getting an excellent education. Guidance is available in making choices, which can make a difference. Living on campus is comfortable and safe. All types of services and amenities are available which provide for a wonderful college experience in and out of the classroom.

As a History and Education student the types of internships that I would be a part of would be student teaching. As a student teacher I wouldn't be paid but it would be a very rewarding experience and one that I would not pass up. Currently I am part of a student teaching experience called Breakthrough and I get to work with seventh and eighth graders. Being prepared each week to teach and help my students is very important to my growth as a teacher.

I am currently an History major (with an Education minor) and I have to say that it was the best decision that I have made coming to Arcadia. Every teacher that I have had so far for my major seem to really care about their students, they are helpful and really want to help the students achieve their goals. The classes are challenging in the best ways possible and their are so many choices for classes. With every class that I take I feel as if I am moving closer to my goal of becoming a history teacher.

There are a lot of majors to choose from and courses that take care of the different requirements for each major, but as with most schools, some professors are better than others.
College Sophomore 2013-08-27T15:13:35Z
The food is over-priced and fairly bland. It's usually over-crowded no matter when you go to the dinning hall or the Chat (on campus cafe) and it's hard to get anywhere else when you're pressed for time.

Arcadia only hosts public transport to AU specific events but the public transportation in the area is extremely convenient because it is in the Philly suburbs so trains and buses are used often and are fairly cheap.

While the parking permit isn't terribly expensive ($60 a year), finding a spot at peak class times is everyone's most dreaded experience. The campus is small enough that most people park and just elect to walk to class, rain or shine, just to avoid the hassle of finding a parking spot or risk being late to class.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
