I have learned so much since being at Arcadia, not just facts I need to know for my major but I have been able to learn a lot about myself and other important things. My knowledge has expanded so much thanks to the help of my professors.

    Arcadia University is a small school with extremely small class sizes. The campus is small so walking from class to class in five minutes or even from your dorm room to class in five minutes is definitely possible. The community is amazing because the students are very open minded and accepting to all cultural backgrounds and the LGBT community.

    The campus at Arcadia is very small and nice, but you will know everyone. There is not much of a social atmosphere here so if that is what you want then do not come. The Chat food is very good while the dining hall is not. Overall it is a nice school but it is not quite the college experience.

    While the tuition is a bit steeper than I originally anticipated, I applied for a quick and easy scholarship and was rewarded with a great decrease in my tuition cost per year. I have to admit that my research on this college has proven it to be the perfect college for a young, aspiring journalist and author such as myself. I look forward to attending this college and beginning my future in writing professionally.

    Arcadia is great if you want small classes and lots of personal attention. You'll have a lot of opportunities to see the world, but also enjoy life on campus. As a whole, the people here are fantastic.

    I love the atmosphere there, it feels like a little home, and everyone knows each other. It might feel a little bit weird at first, but when you go through the day, it becomes a much more comfortable environment.

    A small college with a very inviting atmosphere. Arcadia is very strict with diversity and tolerance of other races and religions. This college excels in study abroad.

    Arcadia has a gorgeous campus, enticing academics, and an amazing study abroad program. The people I have encountered there so far are all friendly and helpful and the classes I've attended are interesting. The opportunities afforded to me already are amazing and I haven't even started there yet.

    Arcadia University is a college with many opportunities, diversity, and an environment where anyone around the world could come and experience each other's culture. The professors are great and the work is at the right level. The study abroad program is available to anyone, which is wonderful in my opinion.

    Arcadia University is a medium sized school in Glenside, PA, just outside of Philadelphia. The students and professors are incredibly friendly and help you to adjust to the college lifestyle. The campus itself is perfectly sized- small enough to run to class in five minutes and big enough to see different faces every day.
