2018 NASPA Annual Conference

Campus Tours

Philadelphia, often termed the city of “Brotherly Love”, offers a rare opportunity to catch a glimpse America’s rich history and culture.  The Philadelphia area is home to both public and private colleges and universities that includes a private Ivy League research university, prestigious private and public institutions, and some of the best historical and pop-culture sites in the country. This tour will take you to visit four diverse and distinctive campuses and introduce you to academic programs and services that help to mold future leaders, workers and innovators.

During the tour we will engage in discussion about the variety of educational opportunities and the challenges and advantages of each educational structure. We will also receive an overview of the educational opportunities associated with the community college experience. The tour will provide us with the opportunity to understand the various institutional categories. Breakfast and lunch will be provided. Space is limited so please reserve your space today.

Currently the Campus Tours are scheduled to physically go to the University of Pennsylvania, Drexel University, the Community College of Philadelphia, Temple University, and Rutgers University-Camden. These schools are also going to be showcasing other schools that aren't a part of the physical tour so that you can get an idea of the many universities Philadelphia has to offer!
