FROM

resident assistant

TO

crisis responder

Arcadia’s Psychology and Sociology programs inspired Zac Fiss ’21 to help children cope with crises. While working at a therapeutic nursery through the University’s Intern Philly program, Fiss was offered a position with Devereux’s Children Behavioral Health Services. On campus, launching Arcadia’s Psychology club and “helping students transition into a new chapter” as a resident assistant confirmed his path: “It exposed me to different needs, backgrounds, and issues.”

inspired artist

TO

well-rounded entrepreneur

Moved by her brother’s fatal battle with Hydrocephalus, Graphic Design major Mya Brown ’21 worked with the Hydrocephalus Association to develop their website and marketing materials as part of her Capstone. The experience helped her land a junior graphic designer position in Philadelphia: “Arcadia is where I learned a great deal. I got experience beyond design, like working with clients and setting up contracts.”
