When Discrimination Finds You

Most people have experienced some form of discrimination and have been hurt by it. It is incredibly harmful and unnecessary to exclude or attack people for something that cannot be helped. At Arcadia, I am learning about the various ways discrimination affects people, which has led me to think of...

Winter Fun During Finals

The holiday season can be a stressful time for college students. Let’s face it: Although we would like to be out and about to “spread Christmas cheer,” as Buddy the Elf would say, most of us are, in fact, boarded up in our rooms cramming in last-minute essays and final preparations. Everyone...

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...

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...

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...

Enjoying Overwatch from Screen to Stadium

As I entered my final year as a student at Arcadia, I had the dawning realization that I haven’t been enjoying my time as a college student as much as I should be. Of course, academics have always been my priority—but as a natural homebody, I felt as if I was missing out on truly exploring...

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....

Arcadia’s Global Climate Strike

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...
