Celebrating 15 Years as Arcadia University

Beaver Female Seminary has evolved in many ways since its founding in 1853. Awarded collegiate status in 1872, the institution was renamed Beaver College, relocated to Jenkintown after more than 70 years in Beaver, Pa., and eventually settled at the Harrison Estate in Glenside.

One of the most significant changes was implemented 15 years ago, when the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania granted the institution university status. Renamed in July 2001, Arcadia University continues to uphold Beaver College’s long-established commitment to academic excellence, community engagement, and global learning.
