Philly is a great town and I didn't mean to imply otherwise. I just didn't know if you realized how dangerous the area around Temple was. And yes, very convenient to NYC and DC.

My son attended Drexel and received an orientation similar to this. I believe it has less to do with the neighborhood and more to do with the realization that kids are attending from all over the country and the world and come from a variety of backgrounds. Many are naive about personal safety. I think every student should have an orientation like this whether they are attending a rural or city school.

Philadelphia is a fantastic city to spend your student years in. There is so much to do and itís very easy to get around the city. My daughter is attending school in West Philadelphia, another not so great neighborhood, and sheís loving it.

Another question. So both my friend and I want to take our cars there to Philly for both use and a good road trip. What states will be the best to drive through to get to Philly?

Does Temple allow 1st year students to have cars? Many colleges do not.
Where will you park your car during the semester?

Thatís going to depend on how much time you have, how well you tolerate the heat and humidity, and what you want to see. If you google map it, youíll probably get three routes as a result: a southern one, a middle of the country route, and a route that takes you more north. Iím driving across the country from Arizona to Philadelphia in mid August and have decided to go up through Utah and into Colorado because I want to see that part of the country, plus Iím hoping itís cooler.

Time is not a factor as long as it is not more than a 7-9 days and temperature and climate does not differ for me. I am mainly looking for cool things to see and I am thinking either the middle/North route would have more of that. But what are some key states to stop through?

Then they need to think about where they are going to park, etc.

College is an exciting time--give the college experience a chance first before looking further afield!! LOL
