Favorite Student Hot-Spots:

Center City

Center City lies at the heart of Philadelphia and is home to Independence Hall, the Liberty Bellhistoric Chinatown, and the iconic “Rocky steps” of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Reading Terminal Market offers a bite of Philadelphia’s eclectic cuisine, including some classic city food staples such as cheesesteaks and soft pretzels. With Center City only a train ride away, students often head downtown throughout the semester to engage with the city’s countless events.


The University is within 25 miles of over 16,000 acres of county and state parks. Students who like to bike, run, hike, fish, kayak, or just read in a hammock will find plenty of local parks to get some sunshine. Core Creek ParkTyler State Park, and Neshaminy State Park are all large enough to offer a day’s worth of fun but are also close enough to campus—20 minutes away or less—that students go just to spend some downtime between classes.


With the closest beach only an hour away, students love to get together with some friends for a beach day. Whether it’s shopping on the boardwalk or hitting the waves, Belmar beach and Ocean City, NJ, have a lot to offer students who want a day of sunbathing and and relaxation.


In addition to students exploring the Big Apple independently, Student Life offers an annual New York City trip to visit the city with a guide. Students also journey down to Washington DC with some friends for a tour of our nation’s capital. Both of these major metropolitan areas are known for art, culture, history, and special events throughout the year.

Coffee Shops

The Langhorne Coffee House is considered a Cairn student staple because of its self-served coffee, hearty breakfast and lunch options, and cozy atmosphere. Students also love the Cairn alum-owned Calm Waters Coffee Roasters in Bristol Borough for their house-roasted coffee, The Coffee Room in Newtown for the perfect atmosphere for studying, and Johnson Hall Coffee House in Bensalem for its proximity to campus. Pretty Bird Coffee Roasters in nearby Yardley is also a popular spot to get a big, blue mug of a cinnamon-toast crunch latte or other unique flavors. The options for good coffee are plenty around Cairn.


When looking for a good meal outside of the cafeteria, students always turn to Chick-fil-A first. Two Chick-fil-A locations within 15 minutes of campus offer the cherished “Cairn special” to students on select days throughout the week. Other popular locations include Brother’s Pizza and Jay’s Steak and Hoagie Joint, which both offer student discounts. Students also drive into Newtown for a slice of Jules Thin Crust or an ice cream cone at Zebra-Striped Whale.
