Campus Philly Stakeholder Newsletter

February 2017

Dear {!Contact.FirstName},

This is the scene: it’s the second semester and campus life has been total and absorbing. Between classes, trying to catch every student group meet-up, and hanging out with friends, you’ve been in the “bubble” for months. You look up and wonder, what else is out there? Campus Philly delivers the Philadelphia experience to college students as soon as they ask themselves this question, and everyone does sooner or later.

Whether it’s finding a spot to eat that fits a student’s budget and provides a real experience of discovery or having an inside view of the Academy of Music because you scored free Opera Philadelphia tickets through Open Arts, Campus Philly makes Philadelphia accessible for college students. In this month’s newsletter, you’ll read about some “out of the bubble” experiences students have access to this semester.

Thank you for your continued support,


Deborah Diamond

Student Leaders Unite at ILC 2017

Imagine if in only one afternoon you could:

  • Make life-long relationships
  • Gain insights to advocate for issues you’re passionate about with confidence
  • Meet like-minded peers from throughout Greater Philadelphia
  • Play an epic game of rock, paper, scissors

Sounds like a life-changing day, right? More than 350 students from over 25 colleges and universities experienced a personal-development hyper-boost at the Inclusive Leadership Conference 2017. The annual event, co-produced by Campus Philly and Temple University, focused on the theme Finding Your Voice: Advocating for Inclusion & Respect.

Through 18 workshops, students explored exercises inspiring them to set one leadership goal for the next year and role-playing to increase empathy and higher social awareness.

It feels amazing to facilitate the growth of Greater Philadelphia’s current and future leaders! Interested to learn more about ILC? Contact Cory Dulaney at
