Philadelphia is an East Coast hot spot -- boasting outdoor cafes along Rittenhouse Square, quaint cobble-stoned streets of Old City abuzz with bistros and boutiques and premier theatre, music and museums along the Avenue of the Arts and throughout the city's diverse neighborhoods.
The City of Brotherly Love is the birthplace of American Independence and the home of the Liberty Bell, just a few blocks from Jefferson's campus. Philadelphia is also home to a diverse population descended from African Americans, Asian, Eastern European, Irish and Italian immigrants.
Many students live in the city for the ease and convenience of being near Jefferson, plus immediate access to diverse entertainment. However, public transit keeps the suburbs of Philadelphia close by.
