Convienent but Unsafe – The train is very convenient, but walking through downtown Glenside for close to a mile to get to Arcadia is not the safest thing for students, especially girls. The town is very creepy and a few students were actually mugged near the beginning of the school year. There are also Septa bus stops available closer to the school.
The campus is beautiful, but very small. Some may like this but others find it a bit TOO small. The campus centers around the oval, a giant field in the center of the campus used for sports practices or just hanging out. The library is very nice, but there is often a shortage of computers. The athletic center needs work.
Just Don't Do It – I'm a commuter, so thank god I don't have to spend all my time at Arcadia, but from my experience the guys there are either gay or taken (but mostly gay). The guys who are left after you sort through the gay and taken guys are very, very strange and or tragically unattractive to the point where you can't look past it. As for the girls, you can find pretty much anything, but a good 30-40% of girls are morbidly obese. Am I turning you off yet?
