This weekend, among the frantic paper writing, was the Knight Club’s fall performance recital. This was not only my first Knight Club recital, but my first ever dance recital (most people can say this by their 6th birthday.)So need- less to say, I was super nervous to perform. My dance was a hip hop mash- […]

This weekend my roommates and I decided to make a trip to the Philadelphia Zoo before the end of the nicer weather. We arrived at the zoo around 11:30 and quickly noticed that we were the only ones not in costume. Unknown to us, it was the zoo’s annual Boo at the Zoo! event where […]

This was particularly exciting because I feel as though I have not had the opportunity to see my family since going abroad (I also spent my summer at Arcadia).

An Arcadia Weekend

June 2nd, 2011 · 2 Comments · First Year Study Abroad Experience, Samantha Ebert '14

Four months ago I was 3,000 miles away from everything and everyone I knew and loved; now I am three days away from leaving what has become my second home and second family. I know as soon as I get back home, I will be bombarded with the question, “How was it?” My experience has […]
