Happy Thanksgiving!

November 28th, 2012 · No Comments · Majors Abroad Programs, Megan Mack '14 - Global Media

Spending holidays abroad is always an interesting experience. It is even more of an experience when it is a holiday that isn’t celebrated in that county. That’s right I am talking about Thanksgiving. Just the other day I was surprised to see the familiar site of a cart piled high for a feast with two […]

Happy Birthday!

How do you celebrate your 21st birthday in a country where you are already legal? By doing something you would never do otherwise! Going to the ice bar was such a cool experience (pun intended). They give you these awesome thermal capes and gloves and then you enter a room that is completely made of […]

Hurricane Sandy

November 5th, 2012 · No Comments · Benjamin Honey '14 - Global Legal Studies, First Year Study Abroad Experience

The Hurricane So the hurricane is over and the results are across the board. There were some places such as NYC and NJ where the hurricane destroyed all sorts of things, relocated homes, and flooded most of the state causing massive damage. On the other hand, there were parts such as my house that never […]

Kings Corner

Kings Corner. Prepare to try the best chicken you have ever had. Kings corner is an old style pub in Jenkintown. It has the best deep friend food I have ever had, but more importantly it was a flash from the past. The pub was very traditionally Scottish and English and reminded me of Scotland. […]

Art Art Art…and food

November 5th, 2012 · No Comments · Benjamin Honey '14 - Global Legal Studies, Majors Abroad Programs

Philly This week I went to Philly and not surprisingly the weather was uncooperative. The weather was cold, gloomy and bitter. Because it was the first Sunday of the month, the Art museum was free of charge. As a college student this is very important. Getting to the art museum also took a great deal […]

I can’t believe that yesterday was the first day of classes. It seemed like it would never come. I felt a little silly feeling as nervous and excited as I had for my first day of college, but in a way it was my first day at college (it was just a different college).  My […]

Fresher’s Week Fun

October 12th, 2012 · No Comments · Majors Abroad Programs, Megan Mack '14 - Global Media

As an Orientation Leader I can’t help but notice he difference between Orientation in the states (or at least at Arcadia) and orientation or fresher’s week in the UK. First of all there are no games of community (sadness for my fellow Ols). Instead even the campus wide events seemed centered around one thing: parties. […]
