Philadelphia Education -

Philadelphia is rich with educational opportunities. From ivy league UPenn to the respected Temple University, from the many art schools to the many community colleges, Philadelphia is practically a stomping ground for the undergrads!

Four-Year Institutions

Graduate programs in law and business have been ranked as some of the best nationally. The Temple Owls athletic teams are, for the most part, solid competitors in varying sports, though their football program is iffy most seasons.
  The University of Pennsylvania  America's oldest university, founded by Benjamin Franklin, is also ivy league and calls Philadelphia home. The school has some of the best programs on earth, especially in it's Wharton School of Business (which lays claim to Donald Trump's business sense).
  Drexel University  Situated next to the University of Pennsylvania in University City, Drexel boats outstanding programs in math, engineering and education, as well as the only co-op program in the area. The university has recently expanded graduate offerings to include a co-op-enhanced School of Law.
