    It is center city, you can explore around Philadelphia and go to a variety of different shops and restaurants. I suggest you to Yelp it or Google it.

    What to do for fun invest in a tv and netflix. As long as you have those you are entertained. Go see a show either a professional show or a school performance. Did my mention all school performances are free!!!!!!!! Always wear your ID badge that is your VIP card into anywhere.

    Well, you'll be living in the city, so there's almost always something to do. There is a lot of sight seeing that can be done in Historic Philly, as well as an abundance of fun places to shop and eat. Being at an art school, there is almost always some sort of event going on whether it be a dance showcase, musical, play, or some other kind of performance or art display. If you like the outdoors, the Schuylkill Trail is a nice little path that many people use to run or just find a bit of peace by the river. It's only about a mile away from the school.

    We are on Ave of the Arts. There are always shows to see, concerts to attend, and you can usually find a party on the weekend. There are lots of options if you are over 21. We don't have Frats or Sororities, and our parties are usually in random townhouses. Philly often has daytime street fairs or you can walk to Rittenhouse Square Park with friends.

    There is not a very big party scene, so if that is what you're looking for UArts may not be the school for you. But because you are in the center of Philly, there are plenty of venues, museums, parks, historic landmarks and store for you to explore.
