5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Many students who begin school in Philly, stay in Philly. There are so many colleges in this city which is nice to have access to. It's a thriving city full of art and opportunity, you're smack dab in the middle of all the action which is great for a college student. You're already in the real-world setting. There's a ton to do, a ton to shop for a waste money on, great food, a ton to get involved with. There are festivals and college events and everyone seems to just want to enjoy life. I've have nothing but good experiences with people here.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Philadelphia isn't for everyone, but there is a lot to see. It's historical. The crime is spotty, but it's ok in the busier spots. Locals can be a bit rude and loud.
