Campus Visit Notes for Arcadia University
Arcadia is a nice school, but it does not seem like a school with much school spirit. The vibe I get is that students come to Arcadia, learn, and leave.
Growing up a short drive from Arcadia, I've always seen and known about the castle on campus, which, in all honesty, sometimes felt like their only selling point.
There is a freshman study abroad experience, which is something different from other schools. I didn't listen too intently, as I'm not interested in studying internationally.
Our tour guide was an excellent girl.
Dining/Restaurant Recommendations or Comments:
Ambler is a very short drive, and has a main street with great food and shops.
Other Comments (Transportation, local attractions, parking, etc.):
Willow Grove Park Mall about 15 minutes away. Septa transportation.
