The CURE Arena is on the other side of town from TESU. You will need to drive and park, or take an Uber/Lyft between the two. CURE has parking, you'll need to do street parking or find a parking garage for TESU.

TESU is in Trenton proper. If you're not used to a city (although Trenton isn't super city-like), just be aware of that. There's not a traditional "campus" like you might be imagining. That arch that was linked is pretty much your best/only spot for a good photo. Maybe here too, but the archway is definitely nicer IMO. https://goo.gl/maps/CDGywdRrf9sbBRLK6

The parking lot for CURE is right outside, so you shouldn't have to show up that early. I'm planning on getting there a little after 1.

As for sights, I'm not really sure. Grounds for Sculpture is the closest "Trenton" sight I can think of. https://www.groundsforsculpture.org/ And evidently Riverfest is happening that weekend, but I can't tell you how it is: https://riverfestnj.com/
THIS is what I was looking for!  I will take a photo here, at the arch, and at the Great Hall!  Honestly, I didn't know TESU even had a campus....that's  just how focused I was.  I thought that maybe it was just one little building...but apparently there are BUILDINGS.  I definitely  want to take a look around and just marvel and the place I graduated from. Thank you for the tips about parking and Uber!  I will probably just drive into Philadelphia after the ceremony.....once I look around one last time. Heart

And Chickie's and Pete's is a Philly-area sports bar. The food isn't that great IMO, except for the crabby fries (regular and sweet potato crinkle-cut fries).
Thanks!  I also want to pick up a couple of your famous Philly Cheese Steaks LOL!  I said that I would Freeze a a few, maybe like 4, and eat some there.  Always want to have one (I am somewhat of a foodie lol) , I also want to see the Rocky steps, and then of course, the Liberty Bell!  How appropriate.  Heart

The great hall is the building behind the arch if I remember correctly (I did one or two in-person exams).

EDIT: And Mastori's isn't in Philly, but it's a quick detour as you're leaving Trenton to go back to Philly.
