Scarlet and Grey Day
On Scarlet and Grey Day, you and your family are our VIPs. As we celebrate your acceptance to Arcadia, you’ll participate in a unique classroom experience, learn about admission and financial aid next steps, explore student resources and leadership opportunities, and more. Scarlet & Grey Day begins at 10:00am.
All students that attend the April 15 Scarlet and Grey Day will be entered into a scholarship drawing. Winners will receive up to a $3,000 scholarship if a resident student and up to $2,000 if commuting*. Students who attended a previous Scarlet and Grey Day are welcome to attend.
*Additional scholarship could be reduced if when combined with the previous aid offer exceeds the student’s cost of attendance.
Special Admit Breakfasts at Scarlet & Grey Day
Admitted into FYSAE or the Honors Program? Celebrate your success with future and current participants and members of the Arcadia community at a special breakfast. The breakfast will be held prior to the start of Scarlet & Grey Day and you are welcome to attend both events if you like (even if you previously attended a Scarlet & Grey Day) or just one.

Day on Campus and OverKnights
Come experience a typical day on campus shadowing a current student to classes, work study, dining, club meetings and more. Students have the option to shadow a student for the day or for a day and overnight.
Day On Campus
The Day on Campus program allows you to experience a typical day at Arcadia University. A current student will be your host for the day, and you will accompany them to all of their daily activities: classes, meals, campus job, extracurricular activities, and whatever else their day includes. We encourage you to participate in any social activities with your host as they go about their day. The goal of this program is to allow you to experience a typical day for an Arcadia student.
Day on Campus visit dates run through select Mondays to Thursdays based on host availability. Drop-off is at 9:00am and pick-up is at 5:00pm.
If you would like to experience a full 24-hours on campus, you can participate in an OverKnight experience by staying with a student host in their residential hall room overnight after your “Day on Campus” experience. There will be a campus activity that your host will accompany you to during the evening which will allow you to see the social side of campus and interact with other students. Drop-off is at 9:00am and pick-up is the next day at 9:00am with Scarlet & Grey Day starting soon after!
OverKnight visit dates are paired with Scarlet & Grey Days to allow admitted students to experience Arcadia life as a student before the Scarlet & Grey Day event. On Scarlet & Grey Day, you and your family are our VIPs. As we celebrate your acceptance to Arcadia, you’ll participate in a unique classroom experience, learn about admission and financial aid next steps, explore student resources and leadership opportunities, and more. Scarlet & Grey Day will be held on the Saturday of your visit. If you’d like to register for Scarlet & Grey Day, you can indicate that on the registration link below.
