Virtual Book Club

We’re excited to announce the launch of a virtual book club focused on professional development and personal growth for Arcadia alumni. The group will be an online community where alumni can connect with each other and enjoy books on professional topics such as business, communications, leadership, productivity, and more. Participation is completely free for Arcadia University alumni. 

Sign Up

How it Works

The virtual book club will cover a range of professional development and personal growth topics, and members will connect through a private LinkedIn group where you can discuss the current book and network with each other. Joining the book club is completely free for alumni--you just have to get a copy of the book to enjoy. The group will read a book every two months so you'll have plenty of time for each book.

Why Should You Join?

There are three main reasons we hope you'll be excited to participate in our virtual book club:

  1. Connect with Fellow Arcadia Alumni: Want to connect with intelligent, driven, and interesting people? Joining the book club will introduce you to Arcadia alumni across industries, generations and geographies to help you improve your network.
  2. Advance your Career: A professional book club enhances your career on two fronts. First, the books you read will make you more effective in areas critical to success like leadership, communication, and productivity. Second, the network you'll be building can help you with career advice, introducing you to the right people and finding your next job.
  3. Reading is Good for You: Did you know business people who read at least seven business books per year earn over 230% more than people reading just one book per year? Or that reading improves your intelligence, reasoning ability and has been linked to reducing the chance of Alzheimer's? Joining our virtual book club will help you read more and enjoy all the benefits that come with it.
