Since you are considering living on campus, let us provide you with a sampling of what this experience can be like…
- Imagine a small community setting where most of the faces you’ll see on a daily basis look familiar because interaction between peers is frequent.
- Imagine living in a comfortable, spacious, and secure suite with 3-5 other people that share similar goals and interests as you.
- Imagine short walks to class, worry-free parking, easy access to Philadelphia and the surrounding area, and those all-too-important cat naps in between classes.
- Imagine yourself taking a trip to New York to see a play, to Baltimore to visit a museum, or to Canada for Spring Break.
- Imagine hanging out with new friends while playing pool or air hockey, or exercising in the fitness center.
