Testimonials from Past Participants
- "The scholarship session was the best I’ve heard anywhere."
- "The event was VERY organized. Thank you for placing Arcadia staff and students everywhere—from the parking entrance to specific points on campus in their red shirts. I felt very welcome and pleased with the structure of the day."
- "Both sessions that I attended were informative. The workshops on career trends also provided valuable resources and websites that can be utilized with high school students."

"I left for China well traveled. I came back from China and realized I had only begun to travel. Arcadia University and our gracious hosts in China treated us to a master quilt of historic attractions and impact flu gatherings with school teachers, college representatives, and students. Each site flooded our senses. The richness and contrasting highlights of the experience from The Great Wall to the Terracotta Warriors to the bustling metropolis of Beijing gave us a deep appreciation for this foundational country and it's ever upward dedication to an educated society."
