2. It’s FUN!
Chances are, you could use a break from the library and your typical weekly schedule. Why not get out there and see a show and give your Netflix account a break? We will have tons of fun photo opps for you and your friends to snag that perfect Instagram post, make sure to tag us and use the hashtag, #MeetPhilly.

We’ll also be available to answer any questions you may have about how we can help you achieve your #PerfectPhillySummer.
4. Did We Mention the Price?
If you’re an Open Arts Member, you get to see professional shows all the time for free or extremely discounted prices…College Night is no exception! You get to see an incredible Shakespeare show for the same price as a Starbucks drink and pastry.
5. The Chance to Experience Part of Philadelphia’s Arts Culture
Philadelphia’s arts events are about as diverse as the people that live in it! If you’ve never seen a play in Philly, or a Shakespeare one at that, now is the perfect opportunity to do so!
6. A Perfect Excuse to Escape into the City
Tell your homework and finals preparations that it can wait a few hours. Taking a break and taking a short subway ride into Center City can be a great way to ease your mind and unwind during the end of the semester stresses!
7.Close Proximity to Great Eats
If we couldn’t convince you with all of the other reasons to be at College Night…consider this. The theater is close to so many incredible places to eat. That’s something we can really sink our teeth into.
