Temple Makeover

24 Dec

Temple University is reportedly spending a billion dollars on projects within the next decade for improvements and new projects on its Main Campus. From KYW 1060:


In addition to building a high rise residence hall, word is Temple will build a new flagship library and add retail space.

Too bad we will all already be graduated, but it will be nice to come back and take a look at the changes.

Apply to be an RA!!

23 Nov

Being an RA takes a lot of effort and time, but is as equally as rewarding!

RC Loida working at Peabody

RC Loida says that being an RA allowed her to develop as an individual.

“It taught me to respect the views and values of others and enabled me to question my own.”

RA JacQueline agrees, and says it’s an extraordinary opportunity to get to know people.

“I knew it would help me grow as a person in a variety of ways,” she explains, which is also her favorite part about being an RA.
“[Being a RA meant] being challenged to identify with people different from myself. Finding common ground is a challenge and a pleasure. My own beliefs have developed because of the constant questioning I must do.”

The RA Selection Application Deadline is next week on Tuesday, December 1, 2009 at 5pm.

If you are still interested in having an incredible leadership experience as well as getting lots of FREE stuff (Housing, Meal Plan and Book Stipend), then be like

Star-Studded Campus Day

20 Oct

For being voted the ugliest city in the nation, Philadelphia has had some hot people visiting today, particularly on

Matt Lauer

campus!

First, Matt Lauer spoke to the journalism department!

Today’s other two guests, however, are a less attractive than Lauer’s 51-year-old abs, but just as controversially hot . David Horowitz and his friend, Geert Wilders are talking tonight at 7pm  in Room 17 of Anderson Hall, on Berks Street between 11th and 12th and are attracting national attention.

But before you judge Wilder, know one thing: those in the Netherlands are some of the most tolerant people in the world. The only people they are intolerant of, however, are the intolerant, such as extreme Jihads.  Wilders apparently groups  all extremists solely under the same religion as Muslim, which he believes is a religion of hate and violence.

Temple’s Muslim Student Association, however, is pissed:

We condemn Temple University for being the first university in the United States to allow Mr. Wilders to address their population and hope that the administration realizes the reputation and ideologies they are fostering not only to the Temple community, but to the world.

Should be interesting.
