College Life Rating

Arcadia has many virtues but, a booming party atmosphere is not one of them. There is no Greek life and the campus is small, so it is difficult to find wild parties. Campus safety is excellent and call boxes aboound. There are a few public safety officers so you get to know them personally which is quite useful (plus the response time is quicker because of the school's size). Our new president is pushing athletics and student involvment in sports so participation in viewing sporting events is picking up, though I do not forsee it reaching the following that larger schools have. Arcadia is in a suburban area so we have quite a few commuters which, unfortunately, makes it easier for people to go home on the weekend. While this is can be annoying, Arcadia makes an effort to provide interesting and fun activities for the student population; Midnight bingo is a favourite as is the annual Mr. Beaver competition.

College Life Rating

Wide range of clubs to choose from, some more involved on campus than others. Dance clubs are fairly popular, so if you like to dance there are plenty of options to choose from. Many people go home on the weekends though, so sometimes campus isn't very lively. Also, Resident Assistants can be overly strict, so that is a negative as well.
