Frequently Asked Questions

Screen Shot 2019-03-18 at 2.11.22 PM.png

WHAT IF I CAN’T ATTEND THE WHOLE WEEKEND?

You are welcome to participate in the entire celebration or parts of it! If you can only make the Gala, please email Carolyn Shields at cshields@saintsaj.org for the Gala ticket price.



WILL A SCHEDULE BE POSTED?

Yes! Stay tuned.


ANY RECOMMENDATIONS FOR HOTELS?

We recommend the Sheraton, Inn at Penn, The Study, Homewood Suites, and we encourage you to book your rooms soon since Penn is hosting the Spectrum Conference the same weekend and space may be limited.



HOW FAR ARE YOU FROM THE AIRPORT?

We are just a short ten-fifteen minute drive from the airport, and an eight block walk from 30th Station.



WHO CAN ATTEND?

Anyone and everyone! Though we think the people who would most benefit are former alumni of Penn & Drexel, those who currently work on college campuses and in ministry, graduate students, clergy and lay alike!


ARE SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE?

We are not offering scholarships at this time; however, undergraduates and the Class of 2019 will receive a significant discount. What we do encourage, however, is first talking with your supervisor on this being a professional development event with ample amounts of networking and stimulating talks. Also feel free to reach out to us and we can possibly help.
