    Arcadia is an extremely expensive school. I got a good scholarship here, but I know many people who are having a lot of trouble with the financial aspect of this school. I just don't think this school is worth the amount you pay for it, and this is especially true of the price they make you pay for the food and housing.

    many students complain that arcadia tuition is way too high. i agree, however, it is easy to stretch your dollar farther if you take advantage of all the university has to offer. this includes free dances, movie nights, gym and pool, free printing and laundry, etc.

    Along with all the free events, as long as your balance is paid all library books are free and there are many search engines included in your tuition along with interlibrary loans. Laundry is available in all residence halls and is also free. There are gyms available in the commons area which is also included in your tuition, you just need your school ID to get in.
