Clubs Goin’ up—on a Thursday

Hot take: Clubs are an underrated yet important part of the college experience. They allow students to do something else besides study or sit inside and do nothing (if this is your preference, however, no judgment here. You do you).  Clubs offer opportunities to meet new people...

Self-Care for Midterms

When you think of self-care, your mind probably jumps to bath bombs, face masks, and sleeping in. These are all good options for wellness, but don’t stop there when it comes to practicing self-care in everyday life. It’s important to think of self-care less as a reward for doing a good job or...

Art from Activism

In October, campus was abuzz in anticipation of this year’s Common Read presentation. Common Read is an event that happens each fall semester. First-year students are assigned a book, usually pertaining to an important socio-political issue, that is discussed in both their English classes and their...

Embracing My Creative Side With Quiddity

I’ve been working with Quiddity, Arcadia’s online literary magazine, for a couple of years now, and I’ve got to say that I truly enjoy doing so. Quiddity is Arcadia’s gateway to the creative writing community. We publish digitally twice per year, once in the spring and once in the fall. ...

A Castle, a Camera, and a Script: Arcadia’s New Film Club

When you have a large, medieval-like castle within walking distance, the possibilities for film ideas are endless. Last fall, while working on scripts with my friend TJ Nartey ’20, we brainstormed all of the opportunities Arcadia’s campus offers for creative minds looking to capture magic with...

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 Odd Man Out

The end of summer is always a bummer. As the weather gets colder and tans fade away, the thing we kids dread the most is, dare I say it, the beginning of school. But my attitude toward school has changed for the better. College is such a great experience; I really love the friends I have, Arcadia’s...

Roommates Guide to Staying Alive

Sharing a living space is something that all of us have done before. But when it comes to residence halls, your living space is just one room instead of a whole house or apartment, and that one room is now shared with a person you most likely have never met. Moving is always a difficult process,...

My Favorite Spots on Campus

As I prepare to enter my final fall semester at Arcadia, I’m feeling nostalgic toward specific locations on campus that hold special meaning to me. I’ve always been a creature of habit—I like consistency in my surroundings and get attached to the spaces I frequently visit. Since it’s always a...

Arcadia Dining, On and Off Campus

I’ll admit it—the most important part of college, for me and many others, is the food. You eat at least three times a day, not including the 8 a.m. coffees, late-night studying snacks, and protein bars in between classes. What you eat and where you’re eating are essential to having a good college...

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...
