WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I’ve never felt like more of an outcast. The school feels extremely isolating. I’ve honestly never been more unhappy with my surroundings. There is no campus life and it’s a very similar environment to high school with many cliques that are very judgmental towards others.

Arcadia is a small campus, so there are many opportunities to meet your classmates and other students. there are plenty of clubs for anyone's preferences. Arcadia has D3 sports, but coming together with a group of people to watch the teams play is always a great experience. not only is Arcadia high up on academic excellence, but the professors are very willing to work with you and aid you on your journey.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Arcadia was smaller than my high school which I did not comprehend until coming to campus. It is much nicer than having to walk the campus of Temple or Penn State, but it can be frustrating seeing the same faces on your walk to class every day. Since it is private, the cost of tuition is extremely high as well.

It’s an amazing school, with a beautiful campus, and a lot of studies abroad opportunities.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The food, not many options.

Arcadia University is the pinnacle of the warmest and most accepting university! A safe and welcoming place for the LGBTQ+ community, BIPOC, etc. It is a beautiful campus with lots of opportunities for students in terms of research and also study abroad. The professors are the kindest human beings, and while some buildings on campus seem like they need major renovation, the overall experience at Arcadia was amazing.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The biggest issue is definitely the condition of some class buildings and dorms. Need MAJOR renovations, to say the least. Bleak, probably moldy, saw a couple of roaches, and just seem in need of some TLC.

It's got a strong administration, When I first applied to arcadia I had so many questions and send out a lot of emails. For every one that I sent out, I got a response back in detail as well as links with the answers to my questions. Specifically for me, I had questions regarding the physical therapy program. Even the director has responded to my email before I was even a student. It was a comforting feeling that they actually cared about my personal education.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Reach out if you have questions the administration is very good at getting back to its students via email or even over the phone.

Arcadia University offers a small, tight-knit experience that allows students to receive individualized attention suited to their specific needs.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

There's a glaring divide between student-athletes and everyone else, and the athletes get the most funding.
