Let Me Upgrade Ya: Kuch Center Edition

For months, students have watched with anticipation as the Kuch Center is remodeled right before their eyes. Before this, the most recent Kuch Center renovations were in 2012. After seven years and a partial donation from the Lenox West family, we are seeing a change yet again.  [block1...

A Guide to Checking Out Arcadia Before You Commit

When I was looking at schools to apply to, what stood out to me about Arcadia were the many events they held for prospective students. Of course these events are designed to persuade students to choose Arcadia, and in my case, they worked. I especially appreciated the different views I got of...

Making Money on Your Major Now

As a first-year student, it can be hard to manage school and make some sort of income to help support yourself. College provides the building blocks for adulthood, and if you start off with a responsible approach, success is the guaranteed outcome.  Students who are involved in demanding...

“Major” Changes

“What are you going to do with your life?”  I’ve asked myself this—and have been asked by other people—so many times that, if I had a dollar for each question, I would not have to worry about anything at all. From the time I was a senior in high school, that question has made its way into...

Love Still Abounds: First Thanksgiving Away from Home

Thanksgiving in Florida looks a little something like this: 75 degrees, palm trees, and only sweater weather in the morning and at night.  With that said, I didn’t mind having to stay back on campus for Thanksgiving break because this would be my first real fall Thanksgiving. I always tell...

Flying Solo at AnimeNYC

Before coming to Arcadia, I had never traveled anywhere by myself. I forget things easily while packing and am typically confused by public transportation, so the idea of traveling to Center City by myself used to be daunting.  This may sound silly to readers who have lived in...

Linking to Employers Through Handshake

Searching for jobs as a college student can be challenging on multiple fronts. General labor jobs tend to be easier to attain, but they may not work with your already busy class schedule, let alone downtime. Besides, what if you want to do something more in line with your desired career? ...

Is College Actually Better Than High School?

Okay, yeah, everyone says college is better than high school, and that in a few years, high school will just feel like a bad dream. But is that really true? I know I didn’t buy it. Because I didn’t think my high school experience was that bad.  Now, though? Now I know things can be so much...

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...

An American in Paris: Timeline and Tips

Last year while abroad, some friends and I decided to go to Paris as a group. Safety in numbers, right?  We picked a date, bought our bus tickets in advance online, and packed as much as we could into a long weekend. Here’s how we did it:  Arcadia London Center (Thursday...

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...

First semester in college can be one of the most overwhelming transitions in your life. You are not only figuring out how to transition from high school to college, but also how to grow into a full-fledged adult. It was no different for me. I thought I had it all figured out—that...
