PSIP, Philadelphia Service Immersion Program

PSIP, Philadelphia Service Immersion Program, is a four day optional early move-in experience of community service, intellectual discovery, and urban exploration. Its goal is to introduce incoming freshmen immediately and intensely to our Jesuit values of social justice, service to those on the margin, moral discernment, and intellectual inquiry. The program is very holistic in design, including intellectual, service, and cultural components.

Dates for PSIP 2016 are Tuesday, August 23rd through Saturday, August 27th, 2016, immediately preceding move-in and Academic Orientation. Space is limited. The fee for PSIP is $175, payable after you are notified of acceptance to the program. Financial aid is available; no one will be excluded because of financial need.

Participant applications will be available online beginning May 25, 2016. Students will be notified of acceptance no later than July 15th, 2016.
