Jordan Polen

Major: Biology (Pre-PT)

Hometown: Lincolnshire, Ill.

Athletics: Goalie for the Arcadia women’s soccer team. I was also a high school Academic All-American.

Why I came to Arcadia: I was researching the best Physical Therapy programs in the country and found Arcadia. I knew I wanted a smaller school, so it was perfect for me. I was also interested in continuing my athletic career, and after a visit I knew I wanted to continue with Coach Brownell.

What I hope to accomplish at Arcadia: I hope to find my true self. I’m looking forward to making new friends and exploring Philadelphia. I will always put my education first, but also want to be successful on the soccer field.

What motivates me: My motivation is making my family and myself proud on and off the field. My father was a goalie, as well, and raised me to know what it takes to compete at the next level. I’m looking forward to playing with this amazing team!
