Just completed a multi-state tour of colleges with my daughter. Arcadia was hands-down our favorite. We arrived early and were welcomed inside by a friendly janitor. The Admissions staff was pleasant and our tour-guide, Kiera, was clearly genuine in her enthusiasm for her school. Assistant Swim Coach Stewart Wanser sealed the deal with his great attitude. The facilities are impressive. Arcadia gets my vote!

Wow. Honestly don't understand how Arcadia is a University people even think twice about coming to. SO many complaints. This school is a complete joke. It's not worth your time. It's not worth your money. Probably one of my worst mistakes. The only good part about it is Preview and Study Abroad. But other than that this is not a campus you want to come to. Visit a few times and actually get an idea of what it's like before coming. You'll be thankful if you do.

This university is very safe and friendly environment. It feels like a home away from home and in the community aspect, you'll always have things to do, people to talk to and places to always find your favorite place to hang out at. Small population but very supportive faculty and students. 10/10

Arcadia Focuses TOO MUCH attention on Study Aboard. They Should Focus On The School Itself. The School Lacks Academically, and they have a POOR REPUTATION. When An Employer Reads Over Your Resume, Studying Board Comes To Mind. My Daughter Chose Not To Attend Arcadia because she value education over everything else.The school needs to get their priorities straight. This school is more like a TRAVELING AGENCY than it is a university. They are #1 in study aboard. WHO CARES? They aren't #1 in anything else. At an ideal school, academics trumps everything else. At Arcadia, your experience in foreign countries will be better than the education you will receive at their school. If you want a good education, I would NOT recommend Arcadia.Also, the school is located on a highway surrounded by fields of weeds. Traffic and privacy are an issue. The area only gets nicer when you head away from campus (toward the shops).AMERICAN UNIVERSITY is a better school. It seems like Arcadia is the KNOCK-OFF version of American.

I have spent 4 years at this great institution and I plan to stay for a further 3 years in pursuing my DPT degree. Many complain of a lack of activities and in my opinion it's due to the lack of effort many put into finding things to do. I have found it incredibly easy to have fun while enjoying the peacefulness of avoiding inner city sound pollution. If you are pursuing a degree in any biological studies and want close personal interaction with professors, this is the place to be. This university has opened many doors for me and I am grateful. I will be honest in saying that it needs a tune up in some categories, student affairs I'm staring at you, but it succeeds in preparing you for the real world. Finally, if you want to see the world, there is no better place. I have been to London and the Virgin Islands for study abroad and have had many friends that have explored nearly every corner of the world. This is my humble opinion, if you don't agree, then you didn't take advantage of this school. Hail, Arcadia! Hail! We say! I hope this helps.
