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...

Crash Course in Korean Dining

Food. It brings families together, friends bond over it, and everyone posts pictures of it social media. Safe to say that food is pretty popular, right? Toward the end of this semester, I decided to go to a Korean restaurant to fulfill as a cultural experience requirement for one of my courses....

First-gen Students—You Can Do It

Lately, I’ve been trying to backtrack my mind to when I was a high school senior. I know—I’m being a little dramatic since it was only about a year and a half ago, but it feels like ages! I remember the pressure and confusion that came with filling out applications. Pressure because I knew I not...

Psychology: the New Club on Campus

I recently got together with Olivia Jarvis ’21, one of the founders and current secretary of the Psychology Club, a new club that I’m sure many students (especially Psych majors, like me) are wondering about. Where did you get the idea to start the Psychology Club, and what was the process like...

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,...

New Dining, New Arcadia

All summer, I was reminded about the change in dining services Arcadia had made, and how it was going to be better and more nutritious. Truthfully, I always like trying new things, so the idea of getting new entrees this year was exciting. Long before college, I made the choice to...

Take Me Out to a Ball Game

I had never been to a baseball game until this semester. And my first outing was kind of ironic: The Philadelphia Phillies were playing against the Miami Marlins, and I’m from Florida. Which meant my Arcadia friends were now my rivals (ha!). The smell of fried food and buttery...

Audrey Suwarno ’21, on Managing Food Allergies in College

"Dairy-free, nut-free, and tomato-free.  To people like me, these listings are vital. As someone who suffers allergies, I have a few opinions about how these issues are addressed on campus. While I acknowledge that efforts are being made, sometimes the online menu posted on...

For Public Transportation Newbies

In Florida, there is plenty of sunshine, heat, and beaches. Some may want to add old people. I never realized until I came here that Florida is looked at as the “Retirement State.” I find it funny that I now see the label come alive when I visit home. What you won’t find, for the...

Crazy Love in a Philly Parade

Masses of exuberant, frenzied fans stood shoulder-to-shoulder for hours. You couldn’t see actual land for what seemed like miles. “Three’s the charm,” they yelled over and over. Sure, the air smelled a bit questionable, but no one seemed to notice or care. This was history. This was Philly’s first...

15 Songs to Get You on Your Study Grind

It is fascinating to me that our personalities determine what kind of music we find suitable for specific tasks. For example, some people put on artists like Drake or Post Malone to go to sleep, while I put on instrumental music that has NO lyrics because words distract me. I never thought of...
