Return to Sender

If you told me in my senior year of high school that I would spend the rest of my career there, I would have laughed and walked away. I was so ready to graduate and forget about the awkward, embarrassing, and goofy four years I just spent in school.  Yet there I was, on Oct. 3,...

Faculty: A Senior’s Secret to Success

As a senior, I find myself (more often than I care to admit) reflecting on my past four years at Arcadia, what I might have done differently, and what I am grateful for. The one thing that always comes to mind is the importance of connecting with faculty on campus.  As a...

Making Money on Your Major Now

As a first-year student, it can be hard to manage school and make some sort of income to help support yourself. College provides the building blocks for adulthood, and if you start off with a responsible approach, success is the guaranteed outcome.  Students who are involved in demanding...

Linking to Employers Through Handshake

Searching for jobs as a college student can be challenging on multiple fronts. General labor jobs tend to be easier to attain, but they may not work with your already busy class schedule, let alone downtime. Besides, what if you want to do something more in line with your desired career? ...

Arcadia Takes Over Comcast

There are only a handful of things that have happened in my life that have truly sculpted me as a person and, after this past summer, I believe one of those was working at Comcast NBCUniversal.  In a previous post, I mentioned that I was selected as an Emma Bowen Foundation...

Arcadia Resources Lessen My Job Anxiety

As a senior set to graduate in less than a month, I am full of mixed emotions. I’m happy to have the chance to prove myself in the “real world,” but sad to end this chapter of life. Yet, as I look to the past, one of the most important things to me is securing a steady job for the future. [...

Double Major—Double Trouble?

When I first started attending Arcadia, I was an English major with a concentration in Creative Writing. For most of my life, I believed that that was the only thing I was good at. It was what I was known for, so I stuck with it. At first, I enjoyed it in its singularity. I was okay...

7 Things Arcadia Taught Me

Rewind four years ago: I was a high school senior who had no clue where he would end up. A high school senior with big dreams and lots of plans, but no means of executing those plans. I was about to make one of the most important decisions in my life by choosing Arcadia University in Glenside, Pa...

Behind the Scenes of My Sophomore Internship

Story time: I earned an internship this year, as a sophomore, at a reentry program. There is never a dull moment at my job, and there hasn’t been a dull moment since the start. So sit back, grab a snack, and put on your reading glasses (if needed). It was toward the end of summer,...

The Life of a CPA

A few years ago, when job interviewers mentioned my resume, I’d just stare at them blankly, hoping my hidden skill of hypnosis would convince them to give me the job. Long story short, that never really worked— but I most certainly became better at eye contact during interviews. When...

Make-A-Wish Come True

As I slipped into my heels and slicked on a layer of lip gloss, I couldn’t help but feel like a little girl playing dress-up in mom’s closet. I was headed to a silent auction fundraiser and sponsor gala organized by Make-A-Wish Philadelphia, Delaware, and Susquehanna Valley, where I’m interning...
