Arcadia University Study Abroad
Arcadia University, founded in 1853, is pleased to announce the establishment of The College of Global Studies. The College has transformed from the Center for Education Abroad through a total restructuring of the University Academic Affairs. The University is now divided into four colleges: The College of Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences, The College of Business, Health & Sciences, The College of Continuing Studies, and The College of Global Studies. It is the first College of its kind to become a full-fledged member of the academy with all the attendant rights and responsibilities thereof.
Arcadia University's College of Global Studies is committed to the full integration of global studies within the University's curriculum. The College of Global Studies will strive to uphold Arcadia University's mission to prepare residential students, as well as international students, for life and service in a global and dynamic society.

Study-abroad students seemed to be randomly placed in housing assignments. For example, my friends studying abroad got placed in a way nicer section, while I (a junior) got placed in the freshman dorms that were a 25 minute walk from the University. Other than that, no complaints.

I would probably have preferred a little more academic support when it came closer to the time for our final papers and tests, but that isn't exactly the British system of academics. Or, I might have appreciated interning with a group alongside my fellow classmates rather than turning it into a solo time with only passing glances whenever you got a chance.
