The organizations and events highlighted below make this region a welcoming, interesting and opportunity-filled place for students to flourish after graduation. We’re excited to share news of these collaborations and invite you to be in touch if you have a collaborative idea of your own to share with us.

Thanks as always for your continued support of Campus Philly,

Sincerely,

Deborah Diamond
