As a student at SJU over the course of the past 3 years, I’ve noticed that students have not fully immersed themselves with the Philadelphia community and the wonderful things that other universities in Philadelphia have to offer. We are a 14 minute drive away from what is better known as University City. This includes a few universities such as, the University of Pennsylvania, Drexel University, and the University of the Sciences. We are also only a 15 minute drive from Temple University. Each of these Universities hold their unique spring concert, here’s some information about some of the big ones!
