WHYY Film Production Academy: Typical Day

Discover Philadelphia — Old and New!

Film School

Known as both the Cradle of Liberty and the City of Brotherly Love, Philadelphia has been a center of culture, education and business since its earliest days. Today, a leader in financial services, healthcare, education and more, Philadelphia is alive with the performing arts, music, galleries and restaurants.

The University of Pennsylvania is a part of University City, a neighborhood across the Schuylkill River and just west of Center City. Drexel University, the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, and the Avenue of Technology are also in University City — filling it with the vibrant energy of people working, learning and growing.

Added Attractions and Saturday Trips

Every night there’s something different on the schedule. Whether students stay on campus or visit Philadelphia attractions and historic sites, there are planned activities to interest everyone. On weekends, students choose from trips to New York City, Ocean City, N.J., Six Flags and other regional attractions.
