Affordable things to do in Philly?
I personally love long walks on the Schuylkill. The Schuylkill River Walk is gorgeous and picturesque, and my favorite thing to do is walk to the Philadelphia Museum of Art--which is 'Pay as You Wish' every Wednesday and the first Sunday of the month. You can take the Walk down to Boathouse Row--which is simply lovely.
Closer to Penn, movies are $5 on Tuesdays, but I don't think it's that much more expensive on other days during the business week.
Finally, look into places with student discounts!

College Houses offer a lot of discounted events in the city as well. For example, Harrison College House goes to shows in the city just about every week for only a $1 copay! Other college houses have discounted sports game tickets, concert tickets and other events.
