There are not many places, there is a diner, and a wawa down the road and a pizza place. The pizza place does not deliver, and the wawa is a far walk in the cold. Other than that there are not many options.

Although I personally love it, some do complain. Freshman live directly on-campus during the first year, but have the opportunity to live in AU apartments that are literally a 5-minute walk off campus after their first year. They also have the option to live in Knight Hall, an upperclassman living space, after their first year as well.

Majors are very structured and organized. AU specializes in certain areas such as Pre-PA/PT and Education.

Health & Safety:
Arcadia for one is located just outside of a small town. It is very and and has extra security measures for dorm halls. Public Safety (campus security) keeps the campus safe and secure.

It is not too strict. It depends on the RA and the Area Coordinator. Arcadia has more or less a 3 strikes and you're out policy.

There is no night life. Unless you want to walk around glenside at night.

Academics are a top priority here at Arcadia. Professors go a long way to make class fun and interesting.

I am an Acting Major and I could not love it more. We have a phenomenal program designed by Yale School of Drama graduate Mark Wade. The faculty and professors are preparing us for work out in the real world. I am privileged to be a part of this program.

I have yet to see campus security get involved. Driniking is mostly off campus so it stays quiet and so do they.
College Sophomore 2013-01-25T22:00:22Z
The walk to the train isn't awful in good weather. Zip Cars are available too.

Multiple swipe in doors make it difficult to enter the dorms without id. Call boxes are available on campus.

There really aren't a lot of things to do. There are a few shops, but they get old fast.
College Junior 2013-01-25T03:52:46Z
The diversity here is pretty standard. It could be better, but it could also be a lot worse.

I transferred into Arcadia after completing a 2 year degree program at another school, and transferring to Arcadia was one of my worst college experiences, and I've had plenty of others. Unless you're a first year student they didn't really seem to care about you, study abroad options are basically extinct and that's what Arcadia's reputation is built on. I had trouble leaving housing because I was a transfer student too. There is never anything really going on on the weekends, so they can get pretty boring unless you're at home. Tuition is insane! $47,770 to live there for a year, before books and additional expenses is just ridiculous! If I could go back in time, I would have transferred to a different school.

Parking wasn't bad if you were looking for a spot later in the day, I lived in Knight so I wanted to be parked there, but that lot fills up fast, and if you're not parked there you're probably parked in another zip code!

When I lived on campus I lived in Knight which was a pretty nice setup with a lounge/kitchen and a laundry room on every floor, and suite style housing was pretty sweet. Getting maintenance done was another story, it took us over a month to get on of our toilets fixed.

The library has a nice setup with Macs and PCs in the basement and PCs on the first floor, but the technology associated with the computers is awful. Half on the computers aren't hooked up to the correct printer so you can never just log in and print without it taking a half hour, and something is always wrong with the printers, it's such a hassle.

For the cost of tuition being so high you'd think they'd at least serve edible food. You can go to the Dining Hall or the Chat with your meal plan, and the Chat is the place to go, the food there gets old quick though.

Health & Safety:
There is not a lot of crime on campus. There has been one major incident since I have been going there for 3 years. After this incident more cameras were installed. Campus security is always around and there are emergency phones placed everyone around campus. I feel very safe on campus.

I do not live on Campus, but most of my friends do. The dorms can be on the actual campus or across the street in an apartment complex the school bought. It is a short walk from the apartments to classes. Also, a special few students get to stay in the castle which the campus is famous for. Most people seem to enjoy living on campus. The cost is about an additional 10K added to the tutition. There are a lot of activities planned for those who live on campus to keep things fun and interesting!

The Campus is conveniently located near bus (literally just outside the campus entrance) and train station which is a. couple blocks away.

I am in the College of Global Studies and I think that being at Arcadia where there is an excellent study abroad program gives me an edge.
College Junior 2013-01-18T18:38:18Z
Arcadia's School of studies is good because to the faculty to student ratio.

The campus is small and there aren't any problems that I've noticed.
College Senior 2013-01-08T02:12:31Z
The computer labs are crowded and the internet is spotty and goes out sometimes. When the internet or electricity does go out it seems to take a long time to get it fixed.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
