As told by DANIELLE SOBIESKI | Drexel University | CLASS OF 2020 | @delcia_sobs
Here I have the feeling of being in a big city without ever feeling overwhelmed, and since University City (where Drexel is) is just over the SCHUYLKILL RIVER, I can walk here, or easily take the bus or subway using SEPTA.
I love visiting the 400,000+ rare books and manuscripts by authors like Edgar Allan Poe and Maurice Sendak at the ROSENBACH MUSEUM & LIBRARY.
If you enjoy taking pictures, the SOUTH STREET BRIDGE is beautiful for sunsets and skyline views!
SCHUYLKILL BANKS BOARDWALK is really nice for walks along the river and a quick workout.
Sometimes there’s Free YOGA in Rittenhouse Square, and classes at the Lululemon store on Walnut Street – also home to more than 200 restaurants, cafés, high-end stores and local shops.
Insider tip: The CURTIS INSTITUTE OF MUSIC, one of the most prestigious music conservatories in the world, has free student recitals!
