About

On UKnightedTuesday, every act of generosity counts.  We hope you remember the impact Beaver College and Arcadia University has had on your life.  The University continues to offer a distinctively global learning experience for all of its students.   For over 50 years, we have remained a leader in study abroad.  We ensure that every student ventures beyond the campus and into the world to leave their global footprint.  You walked before them and paved the way.  Let them continue to walk in your footsteps.  Be a part of the power of collective giving during these powerful 1,853 minutes. Your gift combined with the gifts of others in our community, will fuel the journeys for the students of today.

Arcadia’s ninth annual day(s) of giving on November 28 and 29 will offer donors the opportunity to support The Fund for Arcadia, Athletics, BAAAU Preview, Global Business, Medical Service Trips & International Rotations, and more.

The fund, founded and funded by the Black Alumni Association of Arcadia University, supports students who would otherwise never be able to afford or experience travel abroad while at Arcadia. The BAAAU Preview Travel Fund helps Black students participate in Preview, a signature travel program open to all students.  Preview is a two-credit course and a weeklong, international travel experience for first-year and transfer students.  The award received through the Fund can cover air transportation, ground transportation, programmed events, accommodations, and some meals.
