Jenkintown Named One of the Best Philly Suburbs for Young Professionals

The Philadelphia Business Journal recently named Jenkintown, Pa. one of the best suburbs for young professionals in the Philadelphia area for 2019.

Salus University’s Elkins Park campus sits on the edge of Jenkintown and is where many Salus students live during their time as students.  

So, how did Jenkintown, earn the 11th spot out of over 300 other cities in the Greater Philadelphia area? Jenkintown offers a variety of housing options, a low crime rate and a diverse community. Not only is it a train-ride away from the numerous restaurants in Center City, but it also has many local attractions to keep people of all ages occupied – including students.

Salus students have corralled just a few of the popular places in the area that keep them loving Jenkintown:
