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. [...

Study Abroad with a STAMP

It’s no secret that Arcadia loves to get students to study abroad. The Institute of International Education has ranked Arcadia number one in the nation for study abroad participation for a whopping nine years in a row. I’ve been fortunate enough to study abroad twice, with both of my experiences...

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...

Jarod Pichler ’20, Student-Athlete and Computer Science Major

In what areas have you grown from the first time you walked onto Arcadia’s campus? J: I've become a lot more involved in extracurricular activities outside of playing volleyball, including through Knight Club, Puro Ritmo, American Chemical Society, Computer Science Club, and by being...

Making a Difference: Easy as ABC

When I was younger, people would often ask me what I wanted to do when I grew up. Unlike many children who wanted to be astronauts or football players, I always said I just wanted to help people. It took until my sophomore year at Arcadia, but I found what I was searching for when I stumbled upon a...

Feeling at Home as a Commuter

Despite being a senior, this is my first semester as an Arcadia “commuter.” Last year, a few friends and I decided to take a step toward adulthood and rent our first apartment. While exciting, the move was quite hard for me to come to terms with, as I had thoroughly enjoyed my first three years...

How Becoming an Orientation Leader Changed Me

A little over three years ago, I stepped onto Arcadia’s campus for the first time, not knowing what to expect. My head was spinning with questions on my first day of fall orientation: Did I have the social abilities to make friends? Would I have fun? Would I like this new place? But...

Gabby Sedares ’19, Athlete and Academic Abroad

How has your time at Arcadia helped you grow? I’ve become more independent, at least enough to travel all the way across the world alone. I used to be terrified to make phone calls, but I had to call like 50 million people to find my lost luggage on the way to Australia. I'm so much...

Leaving Home to Discover Myself

I have been blessed to travel to five different continents during my time as an Arcadia student, and on my latest excursion to Australia, I found new purpose in my life. Sure, I’ve chased those wild dreams that go hand-in-hand with studying in a place so tropical, exotic, and fun: I pet...

Going Global: The Arcadian Experience

Don’t get me wrong: I really miss Arcadia. But I am also having an amazing time here at Bond University in Gold Coast, Australia. Arcadia’s study abroad program in Bond has become a very popular choice not only among Arcadia students, but also for other American students coming from various...

G’Day Mate: A Lone Arcadian Gets a Warm Australian Welcome

Torrential downpours of snow wreaked havoc on the Philadelphia area, and I was the only Arcadian to have my flight survive the wintry blast. I hopped off the 16-hour flight sleep-deprived and hungry— similar to how I feel normally when I wake up early in the morning, but nevertheless,...
