Part 1: What’s Your Philly Story?

College is an adventure – an adventure about the discovery, creation, and development of your story! Campus Philly is starting a new series called “What’s Your Philly Story?” where we share students’ stories of what brought them to Philly, why they love it here, and how they’re making the most of this awesome city.

We reached out to a few students from different schools and varying studies to tell us about their college experience, sharing what makes their education and story so special.

We want to hear YOUR story! Tag @CampusPhilly on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook or send us an email and tell us why you chose to go to school in Philly, and why you think this city is the best.
