I'll be graduating from Indiana University in May and moving to work in Philadelphia in July. I have no familiarity with the area and am looking for advice as to which neighborhood to live in. I'm a 22 year old male, single, and outgoing. I like sports, enjoy having a good time out drinking at night...typical college student. I'm looking for an area where I could fit in with young students/professionals with the same interests. I plan on having a car so parking would play into my decision. I would also prefer to be near public transit to New York City. If anybody has any good knowledge and advice for me, I would really appreciate it!

The possibilities are endless. Assuming your on a budget and want to avoid paying for a parking spot, and want street parking to always be available, I would suggest South Phila along the I95 corridor. Close to the airport, easy excess to CC for Amtrak or Greyhound, and plenty of parking south of Washington Ave.

It's a fairly standard young, single, 20-something inquiry. If the OP gives us a budget range, we're good to go.

Fishtown is where you want to be.

I second this. To me, Manayunk is like a college town, with a college.

I would also suggest Conshohocken. Both Manayunk and Conshohocken are on the same train line into the city, so commuting would be fairly easy.

I hope that helps
