Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    I was actually shocked at how good the food on campus was when I first arrived. It definitely makes the meal plan worth having even if you don't live on campus. The options are often both healthy and tasty, and they do their best to include at least one meal option for students with dietary restrictions every day (vegan options, gluten-free options, etc).

    The Chat is where it's at! I understand that campus buffets must offer "heart healthy" choices, but must everything be so #Bland?! Thank God for choices! Unless you're a health nut, the Chat is where you'll want to dine more consistently since the buffet is hit or miss. They (the Chat) offer the kind of food college students eat: burgers, fries, subs, sandwiches, wraps, chips, and cookies - all for up to $6 of meal plan allowance, per visit. While you can eat more food at the buffet with one swipe, your mouth will be happier with the $6 deduct from the meal plan. I'm just sayin'. ??

    There are two dining options on campus, the Chat and the Dining Hall. The Chat serves burgers, wraps, sandwiches, and other pretty unhealthy snacks. It gets old very quickly. You can't spend more than $6 on your meal swipe there. The Dining Hall serves different food every day in buffer style, but it is really hit or miss there. If you haven't eaten there in awhile, you will get stomach pains. There's a rumor that they put small amounts of laxatives in the food. You cannot both eat-in and take food out with you. If you want to take food out, you need to grab the boxes the second you enter. Also, you cannot enter the dining hall without using a meal swipe. Meal swipes in general can only be used once per meal period, which many students find annoying, since the meal periods are rather long. As a freshman, for your first semester on campus (Yes, Fall FYSAE, that means in the spring when you return you still have to do this), you have to purchase the really expensive 14 meals a week plan. Meals do not carry over to the next week if you do not use them.

    the food is not so bad if your smart about it. like knowing there are wings every friday in dining hall. t is best if you look up the menu online before choosing which place to dine at, so you don't feel you wasted a meal, which can be a common feeling at arcadia. there is also a 24 hour inexpensive diner located across the street.

    On the tour there were two dining halls shown to me. One of pittsburgh which was buffet style which is interesting and great for those big eaters.

    The food is very bland but the staff is friendly. There are three places to get food on campus: the Chat, the dining hall, and Easton Cafe. The chat is a MTO facility. There is the grill area where you may get burgers and fries and other food like that and there is the deli area which is more like a subway where you can get sandwiches, wraps, and paninis. There is a meal plan so at the chat you can either get a burger and fries at the grill or a sandwich and chips at the deli along with a hand fruit or cookie and a fountain beverage. The other option is to get food or drinks adding up to $6 for a meal exchange. The dining hall is buffet style so you swipe in and can eat as much as you want. There is also a deli and grill section here along with a bravo station which has a special food such as a nacho bar or potato skins bar. There is also pizza available during lunch and dinner. The Easton Cafe is mostly coffee but there are also little muffins and cookies. Breakfast is only served at the Chat on weekdays and on the weekends breakfast is served in the dining hall until 2.

  • I am accepted here and planning to attend soon

    I'm going out on a limb and assuming the food and dining in the area is pretty great, but I would not know as I haven't been to Glenside before/yet.

    there is no greek life at arcadia. some students consider the sports teams as unofficial sororities and fraternities, but it is uncommon that they are referred to as that as we don't have the typical party school vibe that greek life brings.

    We don't have Greek Life at Arcadia and we like it that way! We also don't have a football team so there isn't a lot of hardcore partying or drama.

    The Greek life here is virtually non-existent. There are no sororities or fraternities, so it would be best to stay away if that is what you're looking for.
