Students begin their Spring Fling on Liacouras Walk
There is one day each school year that never fails to garner the attention of students and teachers alike. With an all-day abundance of giveaways, games, food and music, Spring Fling is the time of the year when students can be seen outside roaming the tables and booths that line the campus perimeters.
Beginning in the late 1970s, Spring Fling is a Temple tradition that has lasted more than 30 years. Today, the annual event is held during a weekday late in the school year after Spring Break and right before finals. This years festivites took place on Wednesday,
April 15, 2009.
Whether students choose to attend classes or sit along Beury Beach enjoying the festivities, there
is, and will always be, fun to be had at Spring Fling!

Later that night, students enjoyed a free concert by New Found Glory and Common!
From beginning to end, Welcome Week was filled with plenty of music, food, games, and giveaways. Many of the new freshmen enjoyed a day of shopping in South Philly, where they were able to purchase essentials for college living at Wal-Mart. Target, and IKEA. Welcome Week came to a delicious end with a 100 Ft. Banana Split, filled with enough chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry ice cream for all!
Freshman student Meagan Prescott thinks Welcome Week 2008 was done very well She stated, "Welcome Week made the transition into college a little bit easier. The extra things, like the carnivals and bands playing, made all us freshman feel like we had made the right decision."

The fun did not end there! On game day, thousands of Temple students, alumni, and staff came out to the afternoon tailgate in preparation for Temple Owls game against the Western Michigan Broncos. Although the Owls suffered a close loss of 7-3, the infamous fight song T for Temple U rang through the stadium and into the streets proving that Temples spirit never dies.
