Arcadia is known for its exceptional study abroad programs and I must tell you from experience, they are fantastic. I participated in their First Year Study Abroad Experience in London, England and was very impressed at the skill and profesisonalism of the Arcadia Staff. It was the experience of a lifetime and Arcadia does a great job of enabling students to fulfill their study abroad dreams. Whilst study abroad is what first attracted me to Arcadia, I must admit that I have been pleased with the Glenside campus as well. It is compact but comfortable and filled with friendly and personable faculty and staff. The students here are diverse and I found it easy to find people whom I could connect with. I had difficulty finding the right college, but once I evaluated my personal preferences and the experiences I wanted to get out of school, I found it less challenging to realize Arcadia was the right fit for me.

Great place if you plan on studying abroad, many different programs across the world. Campus making many improvements, such as the opening of a new student center. Still has a lot to work on, but improving daily.
