Book on University History Now Available

historybook.gifJust published, the book, A Rich History, has been 123 years in the making.

This 110-page chronicle of Philadelphia University — from the very beginnings in 1884 as a textile school with a handful of students to the name change to the opening of the newest buildings last year — is a fascinating look at the institution, the economy and the culture that has forged our identity over the years.  Not only is the History a must-read, but it is packed with photos, some from the earliest times, and contains stories about the leaders who guided our development and some extraordinary students, faculty and staff members, as well.

Perfect for a home library, coffee table or gift, copies of A Rich History will be on sale at the University Bookstore at the price of $50.

Faculty, staff and students will receive a 10 percent discount with their University ID.
