Fueling Up on Campus, From an Athlete’s Perspective

When you’re a college athlete, your health is one of your biggest priorities. What you eat plays a big role in how you take care of your body. It’s essential to not only have energy throughout the school day, but also for early morning practices and late night games.  For me, cross country...

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,...

The Internet Ate My Homework

Every student in the past two years has suffered from fallout from the pandemic. Taking classes while stuck in your bedroom was not ideal for most students. Not being able to see your friends or teachers or the rest of the world took a huge toll on mental health. But, was it really that bad? Was it...

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...

Combating Deadnaming and Misgendering

College is a time and place of intense self-exploration and discovery. Some arrive with their names and pronouns all figured out. Even so, with surgeries and makeup and whatever you prefer, people make assumptions that aren’t always correct. I try to keep in mind that it isn’t always...

Commuter Spaces in Unexpected Places

As a younger commuter student, I was accustomed to driving to campus early in the day and leaving extremely late. Sometimes I wouldn’t get back home until after midnight, as I was busy spending time with my friends in the handful of lounges around campus—mainly, the commuter lounge and Heinz lounge...

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...

Campus Spotlight: Murphy Hall

Murphy Hall, while not in the heart of campus, is a hidden gem that seemingly only Media and Communication and Art students know.  Once the stables of the Harrison estate, Murphy Hall now houses the metals and jewelry studio, graphic design lab, video production lab, Stiteler...

Don’t Hit the 8-Ball

College is a time to experience new things and find new activities. Never would I have thought that some of my most cherished memories from this past semester would be my friends and I in the game room, playing pool for hours.  The game room is super cool and something I never...
