This fall, history was made, and new goals were smashed. Let's take a look back at some of this semester's accomplishments.

Arcadia was named one of The Princeton Review's Best Regional Schools for the ninth consecutive year. We Rocked the Knight with FOX 29. Students in the Ceramics program created plateware for an exhibition at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The Empty Bowl benefit dinner celebrated 30 years. Arcadia debuted a new welcome center in Grey Towers Castle. We smashed our giving record for UKnighted Tuesday. And last but not least, we "Got Lit!"

We can't wait to see all that you'll accomplish next semester!
