Radnor PA is an excellent place to go to college. There are so many smalls schools and even big schools around. The campuses are so close to each other you can even walk. Villanova is also right around the corner and the King of Prussia mall for weekend shopping! Philadelphia is not a far drive for nightlife either.

Radnor is a comfortable suburb, convenient to many amenities, job opportunities, transportation and the city of Philadelphia. While there are many nice people, there are also a lot of pretentious, provincial snobs, with not that much to be so snobby about. The local, basically volunteer, government is highly politicized, corrupt and rampant with cronyism. Some good restaurants, etc., but very expensive. You can get a decent education in their public schools, but true to their provincial nature, their high school sends way too many kids to Penn State when many of them could be better served by more creative options. No real "nightlife".
Radnor Township is located about 20 minutes outside of Philadelphia combining neighborhood living with wonderful schools and a quick commute to the city. Whether you are sitting outside on North Wayne Avenue having dinner or watching a football game at the high school, the thing you notice most is the wonderful sense of community here.
