President's Message
President Stephen Spinelli

Dear Friends,

Philadelphia University is celebrating 125 years of contributions to higher education and society throughout this academic year.

Campus is abuzz with a flurry of activities surrounding the anniversary of our founding.  Our kick-off events - The Philadelphia Orchestra Free Neighborhood Concert and the Greater NYC Alumni Network Cruise - were just the beginning of the celebration. 

In honor of our 125th, we welcomed our founder, Theodore Search, as this year's convocation speaker.  He charmed us with his good humor and his recounting of how Philadelphia University began. Check out the timeline of important dates in our history.

It is a wonderful time to be involved with Philadelphia University.  This website will guide you through photos and stories of our past.  Please share any memories you have of our wonderful institution on our Share Your Story page.

Make sure you stop back often, as new items will be added.  I hope you will join us at some of the upcoming festivities.  Old and new friends are always welcome to visit our ever-changing campus.  I look forward to sharing the 125th Anniversary with you.

Best wishes,

Stephen Spinelli, Jr., Ph.D.
