    PhilaU's Campus Activities Board (CAB) plans events almost every Friday or Saturday during the academic year. These can range from a campus drag show to a movie screening to a hypnotist or magician. We also host over 60 clubs and organizations, including fraternities and sororities (both social and professional), service clubs, social clubs, and intramural sports. East Falls, the neighborhood in which PhilaU is situated, has several amenities such as local restaurants, shops, and chain stores (RiteAid, Dunkin' Donuts). The main intersection in East Falls (Midvale Ave & Ridge Ave) is about a 10 minute walk from the freshman residence halls. Manayunk, a thriving neighborhood in Philadelphia (think Main Street USA) is located about 2 miles from campus and is walkable in nice weather. (There is also a bus line which runs there if the weather is inclement.) Manayunk hosts shops, restaurants, and a bar scene for those over 21. I particularly like going into Manayunk in December when they host a winter festival with a tree lighting and ice sculpture carving. Philadelphia at large has a whole host of events happening regularly. Some of my favorites are visiting the museum district, shopping on South Street, or running along Kelly Drive and the Schuylkill River. Others include Philly College Day (in September, a networking event for college students from PhilaU and five or six other local colleges) which takes place on the Ben Franklin Parkway in front of the Art Museum and the Rocky Steps.

    Philadelphia University has many clubs and out of school activities to keep a student busy. Not to mention the school is in the Philadelphia area, where the students love to go see shows, of age students hit the bars, or clubs. Philadelphia has a solid music scene. Basically there's plenty to do at and out of Philadelphia University.

    There are a few activities at this school. Nothing major like having Hip-Hop stars like Ludacris, but comedians come and hypnotists etc.

    There are always things to do on campus, whether it's some sort of a field trip, movie nights, zombie hunts, seminars and athletic classes such as zumba and yoga.

    You are a 20 minute bus ride from downtown Philadelphia/Old City. There are clubs/bars, theaters, and stadiums easily accessible for entertainment. The city is loaded with non-profit organizations too, Philadelphia Animal Control is a nearby volunteer opportunity for animal lovers.

    You can go to Manayunk with the party people. Frat parties are frequent. Get tokens and go into the city(with a group if you are not from the area.)

    The campus itself has a lot of space for passing a ball, frisbee, etc. There are 2 gyms with basketball courts and racquetball. There is a high school next to campus that provide a free swimming pool to Philau students. Kanbar has free pool tables and ping pong tables, and a little lounge area to play video games they provide. The best part of the campus is that there are so many places to chill. And best of all, other schools such as temple/ drexel/ upenn are only a train ride away. And center city is about a 10 min drive or train ride.

    On campus, the Kanbar Campus Center is a good place to hang out. They have pool tables as well as a ping-pong table, which students can use by asking at the Information Desk. A few gaming consoles are also available to rent out and use in the Kanbar Performance Space. The Student Activities Board puts on a lot of events, too, which are always a lot of fun. As for off campus, well, it's Philly! There's plenty to do.
