Historic Philadelphia – Sat., November 20

Independence Hall, Chestnut Street, Philadelphia
Saturday, November 20, 2021

This trip correlates most closely to the 3rd Colloquium so HONS2103 students will be given first priority.  If you are a 3rd colloquium student and you wish to participate, please make sure to sign up when the sign up sheet goes ’round in class.  Other interested Honors Program students and Honors alumni are encouraged to contact Maisie, if they want to look into the possibility of being included on this trip.

The bus will leave from Seton Hall at 8am with arrival back to Seton Hall at about 5:30 (or a little earlier, if traffic  cooperates).  The day will include a tour of Independence Hall followed by a few hours to explore on your own.  For more information about Independence Hall and its vicinity, go to About Independence Hall
