The most historic city in America is your new home. Our city isn’t just about history, though. It’s a mix of then and now with an eye toward the future. A hub of art, culture, and innovation -- you will never run out of things to do in Philadelphia. Penn is also actively involved in Philadelphia. We are passionate about the city we call home and our students do more than discuss social issues, they take action.
