A Day on Campus

The Day on Campus program allows you to experience a typical class day at Arcadia University. A current Arcadia student will be your host for the day, and you will accompany him/her to all of their daily activities: classes, meals, work study, extracurricular activities, and whatever else their day includes. We encourage you to participate in any social activities with your host but do not arrange for specific activities for prospective students. The goal of this program is to allow you to experience a typical day of classes with an Arcadia University Student.​

Available dates:

  • February 13
  • February 24
  • March 25
