A SPECIAL WELCOME FROM DR. SPINELLI

Welcome Prospective Students,

I am pleased that you have decided to explore the opportunities that this incredible institution has to offer you.

At Philadelphia University, our students come from diverse backgrounds and locations across the globe, but they all share a common passion for pursuing their personal goals in a cooperative and inspiring environment. The students that choose to attend this University are among the best and brightest I have ever encountered. They are dedicated, insightful, creative, and innovative. Since your research has brought you this far, I can assume that you share those extraordinary qualities and would be a wonderful addition to our community.

Philadelphia University’s unique combination of professional education and a strong foundation in the liberal arts, prepares our students to be thoughtful problem-solvers, exceptional leaders, and compassionate individuals. Our nationally recognized faculty provides you with the tools to develop your potential while teaching you to sharpen specialized skills for your career.

Philadelphia University’s location cannot be matched, offering you the best of city and suburbs. It is situated to allow quick access to downtown Philadelphia (as well as being a short drive from New York and Washington, D.C.) with all of the excitement and diversions of city life, while also being nestled in Fairmount Park, one of the largest urban parks in the country. I believe our campus is a source of inspiration and recreation, and truly is the best of both worlds.

Whether you are visiting this website as a prospective high school student, transfer student, graduate student, continuing education student, or veteran of the United States armed forces you will find many resources to assist you in learning as much as you can about the dynamic Philadelphia University community. I encourage you ask questions, to take a look at the work being produced by our talented students, and to come explore the campus firsthand. It is an exciting time to experience Philadelphia University.

The Office of Undergraduate Admissions is happy to answer any questions you may have. They are a wonderful resource and can be reached at 215-951-2800 or admissions@philau.edu.

We look forward to meeting you.

Best wishes,

Stephen Spinelli, Jr., Ph.D.
