Favorite Class Intro to International Studies with Dr. Siskind.
Favorite Spot on Campus

The Library and the wall in front of the building is my favorite spot on campus. In the library I can study, but then I can go outside and sit on the wall. I can talk to everyone and catch some sun and fresh air while gathering all my thoughts.

Advice to New Students Arcadia is a fabulous place. It is a friendly campus so don't be worried/afraid especially because there are people that are always willing to help and that are looking out for you.
What I love about being an Arcadia student I love having small classes which provides the student and the professor with the opportunity to get to know each other. All the professor provide their assistance throughout the semester. Arcadia is a small University and therefore this campus is very personal.
The best part of New Student Orientation The best part of New Student Orientation is that it helps the students to become adjusted to a new and important part of their life. It allows them to create friends and become familiar with Arcadia's Campus and their activities.
