Glenside is a small suburb with a few great restaurants and bars. There are several thrift stores nearby and a mall in Willow Grove, as well. Glenside is located near Jenkintown, so many students venture there for fun. Glenside is also close enough to Philadelphia that one can make a day of wandering around the city, enjoying the shopping, history, and sights.
