Many students find houses in the blocks that surround campus, but the neighborhoods can be a little bit unsafe and not in locations where students can feel secure at all times.

Horse and buggy rides offer tours through historic Old City, which is also the home of Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell.

Coyle Classes 23 nccmsniDs In the increasingly competitive modem job market internships are considered a foot through the door by many future members of the nation ' s workforce. Temple students are no exception. Both on and off campus. Temple interns are developing valuable skills and contributing to our community. An urban location offers a plethora of opportunities for students. Philadelphia, being one of the largest cities in the world, is a perfect place to intern, whether you ' re pursuing a career in business, politics, communications, education or the arts. Students who are looking to intern here at Temple or within the city should take advantage of the requests Temple offices send to professors and deans of their respective colleges. Temple personnel are always looking for capable, entciprising students to fill their staff positions. Owls, such as senior Tourism and Hotel Management major Candace Amayo, appreciate the opportunities made a ailablc to them through the internship programs. According to Amayo, working at the Office of Special Events, " is especially interesting because the university setting calls for additional concerns that may not be addressed otherwise. " While the practical aspects of interning are undeniable, what really draws students to intern arc the new and exciting people and experiences you have every day.

" An invaluable component to the years one spends in college is branching out from one ' s comfort zone, trying new things, and experiencing what your suiToundings have to offer. Those who participate in the internship programs are undoubtedly taking advantage of the chance to explore previously uncharted territory in their lives.

Besides taking the classes required for her major, she has been immersed in Temple ' s rich cur- riculum, finding a forte in various courses such as " African Dance " and " Blacks and Cinema " . After choosing Temple because of its rich diversity, Adenuga got involved in various organizations like the Progressive N.A.A.C.P, TUCSA, TSG, PMA and Black Millennium. She had such a passion for education, economics, and service to the community that in the spring of 2006, she decided to establish a unit of the Nation- al Council of Negro Women at Temple. As the curre nt president of NCNW, she hopes the organization will continue beautification efforts by promoting health awareness, voting rights and mentoring to youth in the community. Besides NCNW, Adenuga has found her place in Greek life at Temple. As Chaplain of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., she is a part of a legacy of prestigious women all over the world. Adenuga has been through a lot in her life, but by coming to Temple, she is proof that situations do not define you. As she says, " they only make you stronger. " Upon her graduation she plans to attend graduate school, achieve her P.H.d. in Social Psychology and become a college professor.

Bom and raised in Brooklyn, NY, Forbes is proud to represent her rich Panamanian culture and is a role model to many in her commu- nity. She was the first in her family to attend college and strived to achieve more at Temple University. From the moment Forbes entered the Fox School of Business, she was very focused and determined, making the Dean ' s lists her first semester. She continued on with her achievements throughout her years and was inducted into the National Society of Col- legiate Scholars. Forbes didn ' t only focus on academics; she was a well rounded individual and became very involved and active on cainpus. She put her skills to use as she became a member and the Treasurer of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., as well as the Special Events chair of National Association of Black Accountants. On account of her outstanding work and accomplishments at Temple, she was able to receive and accept a job offer from Lordi Consulting Company and will begin her career there as soon as she graduates. She leaves Temple with life-long memories and as a stronger individual, but there is one thing Forbes always tells herself to keep her moving on the road of success.

After graduating with a Risk Management and Insur- ance major, she plans to head to Aon Risk Services in Chicago to start her career as a relationship specialist. While excited about her new life ahead, the Temple experi- ence was very fulfilling for Hanitz. She chose the school because she was originally lived in Philadelphia before moving to Allentown with her family. Hanitz says she is in love with the city and needs to have a lot going on around her. Temple was the per- fect choice for this city girl because she could still be close to her family, who mean the world to her. Hanitz found it almost impossible to name a favorite experience here at Temple. There have been many good ones that will stay with her as she travels forward in life. The few that topped the list were being a Phi Sigma Sigma sister, being named the first ever " Greek Woman of the Year " for 2005-2006, being in Gamma Iota Sigma (her major ' s student organization), and participating in Greek Week. " Phi Sig made me realize that I can do anything I put my mind to, and I will take the lessons I learned here at Temple and carry them with me forever. " Hanitz said.

Due to its large city-school atmosphere and impressive education program. Temple seemed right for senior Mat- thew Jones. For someone as fun, outgoing and laid back as Jones, there were many memorable experiences to be made. " Going to the basketball games, many late-night walks to 7-11, lots of long nights with cans of Red Bull and starting my own aca- pella group, the Broad Street Line, will always stay in my mind and make me think of Temple, " Jones said. Along with all the memories, Jones said he learned a great deal from Temple. In his time here, he learned how to live on his own. His mom wasn ' t there to wake him up, to tell him when to go to bed, and to make sure everything was getting done. According to Jones, Temple also taught him everything he needed to know for his tuture. He plans on staying in Philly to teach for three years. After making tenure, he plans to move where the money is. " It was fun while it lasted, " Jones said.

After a semester she learned she was wrong and transferred home to a community college. It was there she decided that Temple would be the best place for her because it would give her more opportunities with the major she had. Once here. Perry changed her major to STOC with a Public Relations concentration and felt it was the best decision of her life. " I have never once doubted that PR is what I was meant to do, " Perry said. As a junior here at Temple, Perry decided to pledge a sorority and joined Phi Sigma Sigma. She felt this was an excellent choice, as she has gained plenty of volunteer ex- perience since. After an amazing internship at Center City Proprietors Association her junior year, Perry had the opportunity to intern at 160over90 as a senior. The intern- ship allowed her to gain experience that she will need in the field of public relations. In the future. Perry plans to stay in Philadelphia, working for an agency or non-profit organization. " I like the non-profit sector because it helps people. My mom was diag- nosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 1993, so I am very involved with the National Mul- tiple Sclerosis Society, " she said. According to Perry, choosing Temple was the best thing she could have done to improve her future. gy g f Davis i Senior Portraits J29 Erika Pollard Sabrina Ponders Paula Ponton Ekaterlna Popova Ingrid Porras-Gonzalez Bradley Potts William Pounds Matthew Powell Elise Powers Angela Prendergast Eric Preuss Kevin Price Renee Procopio Saimir Profka Stacey Proverbs Tanesha Pugh Courtney Queen Lakena Quest Joanna Quigley Kevin Rafferty helicia Ragland Matthew Raisman Christopher Rak Annmarie Rambo 730 Senior Portraits Gina Ramos Jovanny Ramos Allison Ramsey Valerie Raneri Ahly Rattanakhambay Terry Ravello Shane Reighard y i i Holly Reagan Krist ine Redstreake Brian Reece Sheree Reed Avi-Shay Reem Zachary Reichenbach Adrienne Repsher Danielle Reilly Alicia Reinsel Lindsey Reis Jenna Remmert Jeanelisse Rentas Kelly Reuter Lisa Rhoades Preston Rhodes Kelly Rice James Richard tflairto Megan Richard Abigail Richardson Robert Ricker Melanie Rifkin Rorn Rith Amanda Rittenhouse Senior Portraits 737 Daniel Ritterbeck Jessica Rivera Veronica Rivera Moonee Rivers Sarmin Rizvi David Roberts .JSiff r 0% T Brian Robertson Aqueelah Robinson Crystal Robinson GIna Roby Julia Rock Lindsay Rodolico Joseph Roetz Iris Rolon Natalie D.

Zimberlin said he would not have made it this far with- out the help of all of his professors and Dean Montague along the way, and that made his Temple experience worth so much more. Zimberlin M chose Temple because it ' s a great institution. He liked the city atmosphere and enjoyed being a small distance from home. The last deciding factor was all of the opportunities that would be available after graduation. Zimberlin ' s fondest memory here was winning the Intramural softball championship three years in a row. Coincidently, at the time Templar went to press, his future plans were to win the Intramural softball cham- pionship for the fourth year in a row. After graduation, Zimberlin also looks forward to a job in the sports industry.
