As the “birthplace of the nation,” and the fifth largest city in the country, Philadelphia is a city rich with history and cultural diversity and has long been recognized for its educational innovation and leadership. Located in Center City, just around the corner from the thriving and energetic Avenue of the Arts, Peirce College's campus is home to students for day, evening and weekend programs. Students are steps away from the historical, cultural and entertainment centers of Philadelphia.
Since 1865, Peirce has maintained a major presence in the Philadelphia community, where we have established a reputation of reliability and respect. Many of our students are active in their individual communities, in addition to participating in College initiatives.
As a Peirce student attending our college in Philadelphia, you can enjoy a city brimming with art, cuisine, tradition and so much more. If you need a few ideas on what to do near our college campus in Philadelphia, check out some of the links we’ve listed below!
