Arcadia University Reviews
Arcadia is an oddly magical place. Like any college, there are things to complain about for each individual but overall it isn't a bad school, in fact it's quite good! One, the campus is beautiful, well kept. The housing and a few other buildings could use renovation and expansion but it's still quite nice. Academics is pretty impressive but not all the professors deserve the same critique. Athletics are probably one of the few weak points at Arcadia but the teams are still loved and celebrated properly by the student body and faculty. Campus food is undoubtedly the weakest link, enough said. Safety regulations and security could be better. The party scene is weak if you don't know the right people. Diversity is very impressive, probably due to Arcadia's intense focus on international education but nonetheless impressive. Girls are the dominant gender here though, by far, but to be fair it used to be an all girls private school. Ultimately, an amazing experience and beautiful school.
The administration has gone through quite a bit of messiness over the years that I have attended, but hopefully with the new president it will be different. Arcadia has also prided itself on its small campus and small classes but now they are cutting classes that are less than 15 people. They are dissolving smaller majors and receiving a lot of backlash for it. It is an expensive small school and they can't follow through with paying professors and providing the education that students want, so students transfer after taking advantage of the Freshman Preview program. Study abroad is cheaper than the school itself.
The academics are what drew me to this campus, and the professors really take an initiative in their students. The student life is excellent, and if you put yourself out there, you will have a fantastic experience. Diversity is very important to all members of the campus community, and resonates deep within the roots of the college's mission, in which all students are taught to think through a global perspective. Housing and dining services have been the only negative experiences I've had within the institution.
