    On campus I am a First Year student Orientation leader, a Building manager in the campus center, a varsity softball player, and have been involved in different leadership initiatives on campus. Of course, I love being here! Best word of advice about Philadelphia University is that it's everything you make of it! So if you involve yourself in things you are interested in or hobbies you love, you will enjoy your time here. There are may faculty staff mentors that will help you develop your niche!

    There is a lot to do in college life, and as it seems, the time to do it all is getting shorter. For non design majors, gen ed classes are short and do not always require tedious assignments leaving you with a lot of time to take part in sports, clubs, and enjoy the city. For design majors like myself, the major demands a lot of your time inside and outside of class. After all, design, in all forms, is more than just a career move, it is a lifestyle. If you enjoy what you are doing then you'll have no trouble loving the school. the only problem is that you cannot stretch yourself too far and so being a design major may mean you have to make changes in your life to fit everything in.

    The community here is very close knit. There are plenty of students that are willing to help one another in all aspects. The professors here are extremely helpful and their programs encourage a lot of collaborations with other majors. You're pushed to become a professional even with your informal studies. Philadelphia University is a great place to attend if you want a school that can prepare you for the industry you wish to break in to.

    Campus life is very eventful here at Philadelphia University. We have a Campus Activites Board (CAB) who set up weekly event that include Comedy shows, Talent shows and concerts. We also have numerous clubs that range from an Accounting Society, Black Student Union, and Outdoors Club. I am currently involved with our Fashion Apparel and Merchandising Experience (FAME) group and Fashion Industries Association (FIA) program. These organizations plan events such as fashion shows, field trips and charity work. Our Campus is also home to many Division II sports teams, including basketball, softball and lacrosse. If none of that interests you, you also have the gym which hosts exercise groups and yoga classes. We also have a growing Greek life on campus with three fraternities and one sorority. No matter what your interests, there is always something to do on campus!
