Returning Citizens, Second Chances

Internships are every college student’s ticket to getting experience needed to spice up the resume and impress potential bosses and grad schools. It was the summer going into my sophomore year of college, and I wasn’t really looking for an internship. My mind was set on finding something to occupy...

Love Still Abounds: First Thanksgiving Away from Home

Thanksgiving in Florida looks a little something like this: 75 degrees, palm trees, and only sweater weather in the morning and at night.  With that said, I didn’t mind having to stay back on campus for Thanksgiving break because this would be my first real fall Thanksgiving. I always tell...

Living Your Best Life: An Arcadia Bucket List

My freshman year, I made the decision to move 1,169 miles away from my hometown in Florida to Glenside, Pa. All my friends who stayed in Florida were attending huge universities in big bustling cities where there were 300+ people in each classroom.  When I first visited Arcadia...

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...
