Work With People From Different Backgrounds.
Daniel Phillips ’11
College is a whole different atmosphere than high school, and it’s important to take the time needed to find a balance between clubs, school, work and other engagements. You don’t have to jump into all the clubs that Arcadia offers in the first semester. Take time to figure out what you are passionate about, and you will have an amazing four years at Arcadia.
Deciding to become an RA was a major part in my involvement with student life at Arcadia. I was able to work with many types of students and build communities amongst people from different backgrounds. It really prepared me for the real world because it helped me understand the importance of diversity and how it is a major part in any field that one decides to go into.
Traveling while attending Arcadia also helped me open my eyes and look into the Physician Assistant career. While I was in Guatemala, I was able to work alongside PAs and experience what they do in that particular profession. The clinical experience that I took advantage of really helped me choose the path I want to take in life. I’m taking a year after graduation to gain more experience in various medical settings.
