Although the university itself was decent, the environment of Arcadia University does not allow students to grow and expand. The small campus and student body does allow room for close, personal relationships, but also hinders a student's ability to create a variety of friends; and often ends in small, judgmental cliques. Overall, an "okay" experience.
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.
Arcadia is a great school for someone looking for serious one-on-one attention. Arcadia is really small, and your relationships with your professors are very personal. The campus is beautiful, and the atmosphere is really accepting and the value of education is the most important part of Arcadia. If you want to travel, this school is definitely for you as we have one of the best study abroad programs in the country.
Review Arcadia University
Arcadia University is the place to go for any and all study abroad wants and needs. Along with countless countries to study in, the Freshmen Preview Program allows every student the equal opportunity to learn and travel.
The campus is pretty small, so if you don't want a big school this is the place to be. Classes are small (15-40 people), so you can get to know your professors. Since this is a division three school sports aren't very big here, unless you count basketball. The professors I've had so far really know what they're taking about and are good at tecahing. They're also willing to sit down and help you if you're confused.
This school is trash. Don't go to it. Everyone wants to leave after the first semester. Awful school choice.
I love how small the campus is, the study abroad opportunities, and the people at Arcadia. But nothing happens there ever. Ever.
I really enjoy the study abroad opportunities, the modern languages department, and the small class sizes. I feel like the professors here really care about me and want me to succeed.
As a student who lives here the life at at Arcadia is not too bad buy the food and the amount of money we need to pay just to attend is a bit ridiculous.
It's a beautiful campus: green hills, nifty looking buildings, and a castle on the hillside. Students typically rush to and fro on their way to classes or their latest appointment. Certain administrative offices are more welcoming than others. Student life is decent. The student programming board works hard to provide entertainment and events every weekend.
Arcadia University is great for amybody who wishes to study abroad. Not only that, but they have a stellar international program and physician assistant/physical therapist program. It's a great school if you know you want to travel.
I had amazing professors who were very genuine about their teaching styles and cared for the wellbeing of their students. Also the study abroad program is phenomenal!!
Arcadia University as a whole offers a lot to its students that are willing to go out and find the opportunities on campus. The academic experience has been a positive one, although the social experience has been sub-par. Social groups can be clicky and appear highly exclusive to those outside the group. The institution has incredible statistics in study abroad and institutional diversity, and has a beautiful and warming campus. Regarding academics, some departments are incredible while some lack proper resources for its students. As a whole, the small class sizes prove beneficial for the students and create a level of personability between students and professors. Campus life can also be a very positive experience, but older residence halls certainly show their age with electrical problems and occasional maintenance issues. There is virtually no party scene at Arcadia, but the campus is always hosting events for students to attend rather than choosing to party.
The atmosphere is comfortable. The professors are above-average. Course availability could be improved.
It's a really great school. It's very diverse and the best thing is that we not only have our major requirements but the schools requirements and the great thing about that is that we are able to broaden our views on different things.
I was drawn to Arcadia University initially because of it's beautiful campus. It is a magical sight to see in any season. There is a historic castle on the property that hosts events and serves as housing for some students. Arcadia is a very small, private school. Campus is usually quiet but it is exciting to see it come alive every day as students go to class. There isn't any greek or party life, which I prefer. I can focus on my academics, and it is also very easy to make friends. The food is often complained about, but most dorms have a kitchen where you can cook and bake your own food. The school is still expanding in various departments and it is great to be a part of that. I am so happy I chose this school and I would not want to be any where else.
It was a interesting experience coming to this school as an junior because it was a new environment that you had to adapt to very quickly, which I did because I was a transfer student. But it is so far a very good experience. Faculty is really great and they are willing to help out with almost anything to help the student succeed.
Review Arcadia University
I like the small class sizes as well as the food options, and the people on campus are very friendly.
Arcadia is a nice enough school with a beautiful campus, great teachers, and a nice student body. It's great for people who want a smaller school and more cohesive community, because they really do their best to get everyone involved in school events.
There is a lot of pride in this school. People are excited to be at Arcadia
