Living Your Best Life: An Arcadia Bucket List

My freshman year, I made the decision to move 1,169 miles away from my hometown in Florida to Glenside, Pa. All my friends who stayed in Florida were attending huge universities in big bustling cities where there were 300+ people in each classroom.  When I first visited Arcadia...

Munchie Madness: The College Grocery Experience

Do we really need the big box of waffles? Quick! Grab more ramen noodles! How did we run out of mac and cheese?  Eating at college can be hard sometimes. Money is tight, time is crunched, and your roomies are hungry. We’re all balling on a (very, very small) budget, and weekly...

5 Must-Have Apps for Every Knight

Navigating college? No doubt, there’s an app for your every need. Many apps, actually. From campus life, to transport, and nearly everything in between, hundreds of unique apps are geared toward making our lives easier as students (and generally, as young adults).  Here’s a handful of (free...

Oh, My Gourd: I Love the Keswick Fall Festival

Apple picking, cozy sweaters, hayrides, baking pies, and pumpkin-everything are a few of the best parts of fall. Being a full-blood Floridian, I was unfamiliar with all the wonders that fall brings. In Florida, our ideal night for a bonfire is 75-degree weather. I had never seen the leaves turn to...

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...
