Sometimes when you are just looking at colleges through printed books or websites, it’s hard to tell one from the other. To really see what a school is like and if you feel comfortable there, it’s best to visit.
Visiting can help you to get a real sense of the campus and its community.
We offer a number of different ways to explore the PhilaU campus…
Campus Tour & Meeting with an Admissions Counselor (Monday – Friday) (http://bit NULL.ly/1xTpMWg)
Join a small group of other visiting families and take a two-part tour of campus with one of our student Rambassadors. You will tour one half of campus for 45 minutes, meet with an admissions counselor for about 20 minutes, and then tour the second half of campus for approximately 45 minutes. You may also be able to schedule a meeting with a faculty member or athletic coach.
Saturday Information Session (http://bit NULL.ly/ZEwBPR)
At the Saturday Information Session, Admissions Counselors and current students will provide you with an overview of the admissions and financial aid processes, academic programs, student life, as well as internship and study abroad opportunities. You’ll also take a tour with one of our student Rambassadors which will last about 1 hour and 15 minutes.
