SJU Pope VisitAs one of America’s first major cities, Philadelphia’s historical importance and vibrant communities create a charming and unique culture. The home of Saint Joseph’s University is widely known as “The City of Brotherly Love” and it certainly is, but it is also a city of much more. The fifth largest metropolis in the U.S. is peppered with historical landmarks and world renowned museums, home to a number of professional sports teams and a medley of dining options. There are also countless opportunities to explore Philadelphia’s outdoors with a myriad of year-round festivals and cultural events, sprawling parks, zoos and aquariums. Finally, with eight Fortune 500 companies, Philadelphia is ideal for internships, networking and post-graduation job opportunities – Hawks often settle here after they graduate.

The city is conveniently located between New York City and Washington D.C. and has accommodated major events that have enriched its communities. In the past two years, Philadelphia has welcomed hundreds of thousands of visitors for The World Meeting of the Families and the papal visit – including a stop at SJU, The Democratic National Convention and The Forbes under 30 Summit.

At SJU, we understand our Hawks have a need to spread their wings and explore. Our campus is located just a train ride away from Center City Philadelphia, allowing our students to easily access the array of culture, art, nightlife, and opportunity that Philadelphia has to offer.
