Arcadia offers a lot of opportunities, but one of the most intriguing to me was, and still is, study abroad. College is about global education and personal growth - you really begin to find yourself in college, and I think that immersion in a completely new environment is a great way for you to truly learn about yourself.
The social issues that drive me to be a Civic Scholar are Black Lives Matter, LGBTQ+, and Immigration because each of these groups are about individuals who are greatly misunderstood and they deserve to be properly represented/advocated for. Justice, to me, means representation, reparations, and absolute resolution for any wrongs.
I would describe Civic & Global engagement as a community that supports and nourishes your growth as a student, a civic activist, and a world traveler! It feels like home!
