Gateway to My Dream Job

As a video communications major preparing for graduation in May, I’m always looking for jobs either in front of or behind the camera. Although I have made professional connections as a student, I still need guidance as I search for a suitable job to start my career. That’s how I found Arcadia’s...

Celebrating a Multicultural University

Older generations often label millennials as lazy and selfish. To those people, I say, “Come visit Arcadia!” Our generation has gotten this bad reputation, but I’m sure there are lots of complex, political reasons for it, since it doesn’t seem to be based in reality. Especially at Arcadia, my...

Beat the Brr: Things to Do in Philly

Fact: During the winter, it’s so much easier to stay inside, wrapped up in a furry, warm blanket than it is to go outside bracing frigid air that hurts your face. Another fact: Staying cooped up too long can worsen the winter blues. Lots of people get sad in the winter. Maybe you suffer...

Long-distance Longing

Ah, college. A time of gorging at the dining hall, studying at the library until 1 a.m. and grabbing midnight milkshakes at the diner, Snapchatting your friends back home to show them how great a time you’re having at college… And, often, navigating long-distance relationships. This isn’t a...

Writing Woes, Be Gone!

A few weeks ago, I woke up early and showered quickly. I was eager to get to work because I had an important appointment with my very first Writing Center client. I’d worked at the Writing Center for three weeks at that point, but no one had yet scheduled an appointment during my time slot. That...

How Could School Possibly Become Home?

There’s a universal truth among college students that I’m about to let you in on: Everybody gets homesick sometimes. The degree varies from a twinge of “Aw, I wish I could pet my cat right now” to sobbing into your pillow on your bed. And the length of time it lasts varies, too – some are homesick...

Milkshakes and Nirvana

As I moved into my dorm, my mind was flooded with information – new names, new places, and new habits to acquire – but most of all, milkshakes, ice cream and other products that disagreed with my lactose intolerant self. It wasn’t long before I found water ice and ice cream in the dining halls, but...

Wonders of the Walk

Over the weekend, I took the wrong pair of shoes to Cinque Terre. Cinque Terre is a town about four hours north of Perugia by train, and it’s a cluster of five towns that climb up the cliff faces like colorful ivy and boast beautiful views of the sea. It’s a place I’ve dreamed of visiting...

Addicted to Study Abroad

When I decided to come to Arcadia, I already knew that it was an intensely global school. I knew I would be able to study abroad at least once, and that most of my peers would be studying abroad at some point. Once I went on my First Year Study Abroad Experience, me and my fellow FYSAErs got bitten...
