Home Is Where You Make It

When you leave home for college or to study abroad, you leave a lot behind. And when you come back, the things you left might not be the same.  While these may seem like reasons to be apprehensive about moving away or going abroad, I am going to try my best to clear your doubts so the only...

Arcadia Dining, On and Off Campus

I’ll admit it—the most important part of college, for me and many others, is the food. You eat at least three times a day, not including the 8 a.m. coffees, late-night studying snacks, and protein bars in between classes. What you eat and where you’re eating are essential to having a good college...

New Place, Same You

Going to college is a big decision in and of itself, but when you decide to go to an out-of-state university, the decision might seem even more daunting. Depending on what your background is (Are you originally from a big city? Have you moved to a new place before?), a big move to Arcadia’s campus...

Glenside Cafe Crawl

If there is one piece of wisdom my father imparted to me, it’s that there’s nothing better than a good cup of coffee. I grew up learning the vital factors of a superior pot of coffee: freshly brewed, 100% Arabica beans, spring water, and the perfect scoop-to-water ratio for the grounds. [block1...

Ditching Winter Blues With a Little Green

Let’s face it: Finding fun, unique activities in Glenside can be a bit tricky, especially if you’ve been around the Keswick block a few times (if you haven’t, check out “Keswick Knight Life” to see what you’re missing). And sure, Philly isn’t that far, but who wants to wait for Regional Rail when...

Centering Myself at the Won Temple

When I read on the syllabus that my Anthropology elective, “Myth, Magic, and Religion,” required students to do a field study at a local religious practice, I knew I wanted to visit the Won Buddhist Temple here in Glenside. In the past few years, I have had a growing interest in Buddhism, as I...

Padahastasanas for Post-Abroad Blues

Odds are at some point in your Arcadia career, you’ll have an international experience. The longer the trip, the more opportunities you have to immerse yourself in a foreign culture — and the more likely you are to suffer from a case of those dreaded post-abroad blues. After returning from four...

For Public Transportation Newbies

In Florida, there is plenty of sunshine, heat, and beaches. Some may want to add old people. I never realized until I came here that Florida is looked at as the “Retirement State.” I find it funny that I now see the label come alive when I visit home. What you won’t find, for the...

Keswick Knight Life

Philadelphia is a college student’s dream come true: street fairs, cheap food, 18-and-up clubs, museums, bars— the works. As Arcadia students, all of these activities are practically at our fingertips. But what happens when you don’t have the $13 for an (outrageously overpriced) SEPTA...

Mid-Semester Stress Busters

Sixth week evaluations are a distant memory and, at this point, most of us just want the semester to be over already. Even though school can be rough, it is important to try to make the most of your free time by enjoying yourself on and around campus as much as you can. A lot of people tend...
