Hello Fellow Fordians,

I hope the rain didn’t stop you from having a good time over the weekend. But if it rained on your parade, don’t worry because this week’s forecast is sunny, sunny, sunny!

You should take advantage of the good weather and go into Philly this Saturday (9.28.2013) for ‘College Day @ Philly’! There will be good live music, free admission for museums, tons of food trucks with student discounts, AND a rock wall! The best part of this special event is that it is designed for new and returning students to turn off their “study mode”,  get out of their “college bubble”, and discover what Center City is made of. The event will take place from 10am-4pm in front of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.


In order to access all of these benefits you’ll need to take your One Card and present it in the entrance of the participating institution. So if you lost it, you better go to Safety and Security and get a replacement!

This is the list of participating museums/cultural institutions with free admission:

  • Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University
  • The African American Museum in Philadelphia
  • Eastern State Penitentiary
  • Franklin Institute
  • Moore College of Art and Design
  • National Constitution Center
  • National Museum of American Jewish History
  • Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts
  • Philadelphia History Museum
  • Philadelphia Museum of Art & the Perelman Building
  • Rodin Museum

(Underlined are some of my favorite sites on Philly, but the other places are great as well!)


So tell you friends, get some Septa Tickets/Tokens, and don’t miss out on this great opportunity because it only happens once a year!


For more information and updates go to the CampusPhilly website!

**Also, Restaurant Week is still happening this weekend, so there are many excuses to get out of the “haverbubble”!**
