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.
