My Home Away From Home

My first week in Chile was a brilliant blur of sunny beach days, delicious (and cheap) wine, Reggaeton, and the most difficult Spanish I’ve ever heard in my life. Coming to Chile can be a major culture shock, even for someone who knows Spanish and has previously studied abroad. Still,...

Alison Venditti, Assistant Director of Enrollment Management

“I have been on Arcadia’s campus since I was 14 years old, but my sister was the one to graduate from Arcadia University. I attended DeSales University and was a student worker and tour guide in the Admissions Office. When I moved back home after graduation, I began job hunting within...

See You, AU

I had my last big trip as an IPAL on April 16. I think I realized it sometime during the day that Saturday, while waiting in one of the ridiculously long lines for a ride at Hersheypark. With perfect weather and it being my friend and fellow IPAL leader Olayinka’s birthday, I...

Maura Revaew, '17, International Studies Major

  I randomly took Ceramics as a gen-ed and I fell in love with it. Now I’m here pretty much—well, I shouldn’t say pretty much—I’m here every day. The ceramics studio is my happy place. Ceramics has helped me be more articulate because you have to be really specific. You’re...

Leo Fahringer ’19, Illustration major

I love Arcadia because it has a really open and friendly atmosphere. There’s never a feeling of apathy coming from this campus. Everyone is impassioned about something, and that’s what I really value. Arcadia is important to me because of the relationships I’ve created here. I...

Transferring and Never Looking Back

When I was finishing up my time as a student at Montgomery County Community College, I was considering several colleges in Philadelphia. But as I was applying, someone suggested that I check out Arcadia University. At the time, Arcadia wasn’t on my mind. While, yes, I did have some doubts—with...

I Can't Believe I Did That

If “future me” came to visit myself senior year of high school and told me that I would transfer colleges and take a trip to Vietnam, I would have thought it was some kind of joke. But that’s exactly what happened. Thanks to Arcadia’s incredible Preview program, I had the...

Food and Pottery for Credits

I found myself in mid-January knee deep in Beaver Creek, digging clay from the riverbed with a garden trowel. It’s moments like these when one is forced to reflect: How did I get here? Why am I here?  The answer: Culture of Cuisine: Food and Pottery. It’s a new class that’s co-taught...

The Final Stretch

As we near the end of the spring semester, my mind has been playing with a soon-to-come reality: I only have two semesters left of university. I’m sure I am not alone in saying that the idea of no longer being a student makes me want to hide in my wildly expensive dorm room and not...
