Living Religions: Global Experience Without Going Abroad

I’m sure many students at Arcadia had been looking forward to studying abroad prior to COVID-19, not only to get a once-in-a-lifetime experience, but to cover Arcadia’s Global Experience and Global Reflection AUC requirements. These tough few years have forced Arcadians to consider alternative...

Learning About the Bigger Impact

Arcadia University has always encouraged students to develop an understanding of our larger global community. I’m sure we all are familiar with Arcadia’s exceptional study abroad programs. So it’s no surprise that even many of the courses here in Glenside focus on the wider world and peoples....

Working Out, Group X Style

As a college student, finding time and motivation to work out can be hard. With exams to study for and homework to complete, working out is sometimes the last thing I want to do.  Throughout this semester, I have been seeing posters around campus advertising the new Group X Fitness classes...

On Air: Restarting the ARC

There’s a hidden room in the Dining Hall Complex. Well, not so much hidden as forgotten, tucked away behind lecture halls and cafeteria tables. It is the Arcadia Radio Station, something that has not been running since before the COVID-19 shutdown. Many arriving students, due to the circumstances,...

Being Black During Black History Month

I have no recollection of Black History Month celebrations from when I was in grade school. I remember having a mini-lesson about MLK, Jr., Rosa Parks, and a dabble of Malcolm X, but I never experienced the part where people celebrated being Black.  I wasn’t fully educated on Black history...

Something for Everyone

On Feb. 3, Arcadia held the Spring Activities Fair. With enough clubs to fill the Great Room, it was apparent that there’s a club for everyone at Arcadia. No matter what your hobbies or interests are, you’ll be able to find the right group for you. I spent the fair sitting at a table to...

Exploring Theatre as a Queer Actor

I’ve known I was gay since I was probably about 15 years old. But I stayed in the closet for quite some time due to fear of how people would react, especially when it came to my life as an actor. I feared that I would be cast differently or not considered for roles because I was gay....

Making Friends by Sharing Values

My first semester at Arcadia was the fall of 2019. Back then, I was a pretty shy first-year commuter. College was a different kind of experience that I had to get used to. It didn’t help that by keeping to myself a lot.  Then, right when I started to come out of my shell and make some...

Rate Glenside’s Thrift Shops With Me

As any broke college student can tell you, saving money is super important, and one of the best ways to do this is by thrifting. Not only is it a great way to save a few bucks on something you can wear for years, but it’s also environmentally friendly and makes for a fun pastime!  Coming...
