I like how it feels like home. Everyone from the coaches to the professors and the students are so welcoming. I never fell left out.
Small, but really nice campus. Kind people, beautiful scenery, and a quiet calm place. I too a dual enrollment course with Arcadia and really enjoyedmy class. The Professor kept us engaged and made assignments fun, while also teaching us something valuable.
Arcadia's student population can be very diverse, yet perhaps not that inclusive. Of course, anyone can find their group of people, but it can be hard. The campus is beautiful and the town next to it, which many people walk to, is also very neat. While there are some professors that do not meet the cut (in my opinion), I think most of them are extremely good instructors. I keep to myself for the most part, but I personally have had no negative experience with any of my peers.
The people behind the scenes are very helpful and patient. I feel like I'm always asking the same questions, but my professors are very patient and are willing to explain things to me until I understand it 100%.
Arcadia University is a great school for those who want to be apart of a small community and receive and intimate education. It's hard to be just a number at Arcadia. There are a lot of clubs to get involved in, and D3 sports to partake in. It's not a huge party school, no greek life.
Love the area and the campus is amazing. I am not thrilled with the dorm size but it is not the worst I have seen. The student life is so far so good and everyone seems approachable and kind. Not too much complaints on the professors...yet.
Great professors, good environment, good scholarship money. Love the study abroad program and assured admission to pre-PT/PA programs!
So far I have only done the onboarding process for grad school but everything has been listed out step by step which has been super helpful.
So far everything has been great during the acceptance process and enrollment process. I am excited to get on campus and start my next chapter.
Arcadia University has a beautiful and welcoming atmosphere. I can express who I am as a female and my ethicity. There isn't much that Arcadia should change since they try their best to make the students feel welcomed.
Arcadia university is a good school but some teachers have favoritism, and I had in counter a teacher that was racist because I am black but I went there for studio art and i am so glad this is my last year art classes thought me so much I have explored more art that I did before so thank you
I like that the class sizes are small and there are a lot of areas for you to study which helps a lot if you are a commuter. The only thing that needs to change is that we need more diversity.
Very small and tight knit school. Perfect for people who want to focus on studies and find a small group of friends
Overall I am enjoying my experience at Arcadia so far. The professors are very helpful and they take time to get to know the students individually. The campus is beautiful and quiet so it provides a great space to focus on your studies. There are many events that happen around campus throughout the week, I especially found it helpful that there were distress events during finals week. The buildings and Campus are well maintained and neat. The food is overall good but I feel as though there could be a better variety especially for students that live on campus. As a commuter I find it relatively easy to get in and out of campus each day because of the area the school is located at. One thing I know they are working on is better student advisory. This will definitely be helpful to future students because it will help them keep on track if they have already decided or is deciding on what path they want to take.
Not much life on campus, everyone kind of sticks to themselves. Nice campus but not greek life either, so if you're looking for a party school, keep looking.
I think every office at this college is easy to contact and they make sure you are informed of everything going on around you or in the college.
The professors in the Biology Department at Arcadia were wonderful! They really helped me grow and learn as a student and motivated me to do better and apply for graduate school. They guided me and always offered help. I also met my best friends at Arcadia and they taught me about the importance of friendship and enjoying life to it's fullest capacity.
This school may be small but the faculty is amazing. The small classes also allow you to get to know your professors more closely. The partying aspect lacks but the academics are fantastic. Not to mention the campus is gorgeous!
The campus is small but pretty, and the majority of faculty is very supportive. There is little social scene if you are not an athlete and there's not much to do in the area.
I'm in the PT program and I must say, it's incredible. The professors are supremely knowledgeable and the integrated curriculum is a fantastic way to learn. The campus itself leaves something to be desired, but the robust academics makes up for it.
