Exploring Philadelphia Program

Exploring Philadelphia Program Header Image

For students who want to get something more out of their experience than just a schedule and working knowledge of the campus, we offer the opportunity to arrive a day early and participate in excursions to downtown Philadelphia. This Exploring Philadelphia Program allows new students the opportunity to explore Philadelphia - our extended campus - with Orientation Leaders and other new students.  

The $60 program fee includes round trip transportation by train, dinner downtown, choice of walking tours, evening snack, an additional night stay in the residence halls and breakfast the next day.

NOTE: No overnight accommodations are available on campus for guests during the Exploring Philadelphia Program. Family members and guests of new students are free to explore the city and nearby neighborhoods at their leisure. Maps and dining suggestions will be provided.
