See the Changes at Arcadia this Fall at Homecoming

Field House, Easton FieldWhile the Castle remains a prominent part of Arcadia University's picturesque campus, alumni who return for Homecoming 2012 will notice newly renovated spaces and new facilities that have become popular student hangouts.

Following the opening of the Commons in January 2012, plans were approved for the renovation of Easton Field. The natural grass is being replaced with a turf playing surface. Lights and a fieldhouse are also being added. The field, expected to be completed in August, will be marked for soccer and lacrosse games.

Classrooms and labs in Boyer Hall are being updated, and additional theater and classroom space is being created in the Dining Complex. Improvements are also taking place underground, as new fiber optic cable lines are laid to improve information technology and classroom experiences. Read more about construction at Arcadia.
