Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2012

In regards to my education, I was incredibly satisfied with my education at Arcadia. Small class sizes and professors who care make all the difference. I was so lucky to create strong relationships with my professors and it was all because Arcadia facilitated it. I had an advisor who always cared, a class of just three students, and many trained professors who were able to help me do whatever I wanted to do. Arcadia gave me many professional opportunities. I was able to enter the Keystone State Preservice Educator of the year competition which I won, thanks to recommendations from my professors. I was able to present at conferences along side professors. I was able to study abroad, expand my frame of mind and celebrate diversity. I would not be the educator or person I am today if it was not for Arcadia.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2012

I went into college set on a specific double major and minor. I achieved one of my majors despite becoming overworked and feeling like dropping out. I may have found college more academically beneficial had I worked a few years after high school instead of going straight to college. In all, I had a good experience and made wonderful friends and memories- but in the realm of academia, I achieved less than I feel I should have.

Degree: Acting
Graduation Year: 2010

I wouldn't trade my college experience for anything. The professors in my major were professions from my field who really knew what they were talking about and were top notch teachers. They cared about every single one of their students and helping them to grown and reach their full potential. I graduated feeling ready to enter my career path. The school is very small. I liked this because it made me feel like I knew everyone and felt a connection to the other students. I never felt like I was being swallowed up in the masses, but got the individual attention I needed. I do know that the size of the school bothered some people. They wished there were more activities and things going on. But I was never bored, and always found things to do on campus or off.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2011

Arcadia University is a small liberal-arts college located outside of Philadelphia, PA. I enjoyed completing my MPH there because I was able to form great connections with fellow classmates that has proved to be very helpful when networking, as well as because i was given the opportunity to work along side great professors in the department as a graduate assistant, through which I gained very useful work experience by assisting the professors on their own research projects.

Degree: Legal Studies, General
Graduation Year: 2014

Arcadia is a great school for those seeking a close knit community with small classroom sizes and close relationships with professors. The amount of opportunities and personal attention I received was far more valuable to me than any of the classes I took. The town surrounding Arcadia is extremely limited in terms of night life, but the train can take you into Philly in about 20 minutes so that's always an option.

Degree: Fine Arts and Art Studies, Other
Graduation Year: 2014

Arcadia University has a very "up and coming" art department. They need new buildings and resources desperately. The pre-art therapy program was 15+ more credits than a regular bachelors degree, requiring significant overloading. The program did prepare me tremendously for graduate school, as I was admitted to every school I applied to. Besides graduating with significant debt, Arcadia University is 100% what you make of it.
