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...

Social Justice in Philadelphia

Everyone has something they are passionate about. Your passion may manifest into a hobby or even a career, if you think that particular topic or interest is worthwhile enough.  A big passion of mine that I’ve been able to gear my career toward at Arcadia is social justice....

Voices resounded across Haber Green with chants of “Climate change is not a lie; do not let our planet die!” during the Global Climate Change Protest on Sept. 27. The protest, hosted by Arcadia’s Young Democratic Socialists of America (YDSA) club, was one of thousands happening around the world at...

Dealing with Divorce at College

At the start of my junior semester, I felt like I was finally seeing the fruits of my academic labor. I had been offered a research position, I was going to be involved with a presidential committee, and I declared my double major. I felt like my future was bright and brimming with opportunity—...

8 Things No One Tells You About Move-In Week

The summer before freshman year pretty much looks the same for everyone who’s heading off to college: going to what seems like hundreds of grad parties, saying goodbye to high school friends, and spending hours dorm-shopping at Bed, Bath, & Beyond.  Even though you have three months to...

Finding My Family at Arcadia

The concept of “found family” is something that has always struck a chord in me in movies or books. From Lilo meeting Stitch, or Harry meeting Ron and Hermione, there’s something about friendship evolving into a small but supportive mini-family that leaves me misty-eyed. This idea is especially...

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...

Cherry Blossoms at Sakura Sunday

Come spring, my classmates rally in the warmer weather. The campus transforms with colorful flowers bursting by the sidewalks and sunbathers lounging on Haber Green. Meanwhile, the change of seasons means, to me, that I have to begrudgingly pack away my cute sweaters in exchange for allergies...

Flower Power

After over three months of grey skies and bitter cold, I’ve come down with an incurable malady: spring fever. A nature enthusiast, winter seems longer to me each year. Luckily, I was able to soothe my symptoms of restlessness and gloom at Philadelphia’s 2019 Flower Show. This tradition stretches...

Coffee, Tea, and an Unexpected Boost

Every freshman is required to take a First-Year Seminar. Having come back to campus in the spring, there was only one course option available. That is how I ended up in “Coffee and Tea: Origins, Economy, Ethics.” At first, I was apprehensive. I wasn’t sure how a class about...

Spring Break Without Breaking the Bank

Spring break is an exciting time around Arcadia: Midterms are over, you’ll finally have some time to relax, and if you’re a freshman, you most likely will be going on Preview. Although I didn’t get to go on Preview because I participated in Spring FYSAE, we upperclassmen sometimes get an ache in...
