Russell H. Conwell, Temple University hos undergone o series of chonges, renovations, expansions, and various important events that have lead to the university's constant evolution. It is these moments throughout time that hove led us to where we are now: together os one at Temple University.1965 Temple University bell tower hos its first ringing of the bells, with the largest bell weighing 1500 pounds r i 960S ► L 1960 Presidentol condidote John F.

More rhan 4.700 staff but when railcar shortages and a strike occurred this year, it subways including Brood Market-Fronkford subways, trolleys and became their main source of strife. even bus services throughout the city stopped running. SEPTA announced on July 3 that they would be taking the Silverliner V Regional out of service to repair cracks in their equalizer beoms, effectively removing one-third fleet of regional rail cars. When classes began at the end of August, the rail-car shortage became an inconvenience for many students who commute to campus. One of their complaints was overcrowding on the trains, which were often filled to capacity. Temple extended their shuttle bus routes to students, faculty, and staff who presented a valid OWlcord or Health System IDs for free. Tfre bus continues to the Ambler campus and Health Sciences Center, but additional stops around the city were added to the normal route. The shuttles ran from 6 a.m. to I 1 a.m.. and from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. "I never get a sect anymore, but it isn't just thot,” junior commuter Connor McDonald said at the time of the shortage. Tm always pocked into the cars uncomfortably.' Arrivals were also often delayed or cancelled forcing students to run behind schedule. 'Sometimes if the train is reolly full and running late, they just pass by the Temple stop completely, McDonald said. It wos a nightmare for students that took the train after clubs or cbsses that ended during rush hour, freshmon commuter Isabella Perri said. The trains overcrowded since many people who would take the subway or bus had to toke the train. Freshman commuter Tory Dubendorf had trouble even on Regional Rail, which remained fully functioning. 'Most of the time I hod to run to grob a seal or spot where it wasn't too crowded because people were cramming into the doors.' Dubendorf said. People who were not used to taking Regional Roil often needed to be directed, and crowding led to delays Nissa Chaudri said. 'You never know how long you will hove to wait to get a train and then they're always overcrowded anyway,' she said during the shortage. SEPTA returned to its normal train capacity roughly two months after its announcement. 1 hod to get on o really early train,' she said. 'I was late twice to my cbsses. Luckily I didn't miss a whole doss, but it was still really bod. The (train) I took home wos usually delayed by on hour.' The strike continued until Nov. 7, when SEPTA and the union reached an agreement on their contracts. Full service restored the following day. just in time for the presidential election. All functions went bock to normal, but on Nov 1. SEPTA workers went on a strike. Leoders of the Transportation Workers Union local 234 City Transit Division couldn't compromise on contract negotiations with SEPTA. Dubendorf and others said that rides since returned to normal, with no more overcrowded trains or delayed rides. WRJTTEN BY ANNA GROSS PHOTOGRAPHED BY EMC WHITE 'IWHAT’S COOKINC ON CAMPUS? YOUR CUIDE ON WHERE TO EAT NEXT Students may be aware of Temple's momentum in academics and sports, but these new restaurants prove its dining scene is also on the rise. Here's the lowdown on the freshest food options, new to campus this year. As of Sept. 19. the shrink-wrap is off and a new boneygrow location has officially opened their doors at 1601 N. Brood St., right outside Morgan Hall. The Philadelphia-based chain, founded by Justin Rosenberg, a Fox School of Business alumnus, serves stir fry, sobd and smoothies made from fresh, locally sourced ingredients. In addition to their staple menu, honeygrow offers a healthy dessert alternative, the 'honeybar — fresh fruit topped with a choice of house-mode whipped cream or locally harvested honey Lunch dotes range from $9 to $ 12. Honeygrow does not currently accept Diamond Dollars. Also new this fall is Stellas Scoops, located in the dining court of Morgan Hall's basement. They serve a variety of Edy's ice cream flavors, os well as froyo scoops, shakes and cookie or brownie sandwiches. An average S elfo's visit would range from $5 to $7, save the $22.99 'Owl's Nest’— a mountain of eight scoops, one cookie, one brownie, half a Belgion waffle and six toppings finished with whipped cream and a cherry. Anyone who eats it in an hour gets their name and picture on the woM. Treats at Stella's can be bought with Diamond Dollars and meal swipes. Another swee? tooth stop is sfudent favorite Insomnia's Cookies, which has moved this fall from its truck outside the Siudent Center to a storefront next to honeygrow. serving gooey cookies, ice cream, 'wiches (cookie and ice crecm sandwich| and milkshakes. Junior Molly Apple said the transition to a walk-in eatery is beneficial ’It's closer to my apartment, so it works better, Apple said. An Insomnia cookie starts at $ 1.65. but the price can climb to $29 for a pizza-style box of 24. Insomnia still delivers, but now accept Diamond Dollars, too Though they opened in Feb 2016. the eateries below the View at Montgomery are still on fire. At Blaze Pizza, a freshly prepared, personalized pie cooks n 180 seconds. One pizza ranges from $6 to $8, depending on the toppings. Blaze Pizza occepfs Diamond Dollars. Freshman Cece D'orvilte recommends pairing a Bloze pizza with some of their lemonade. 1 really like it- it's a good bolonce of sweet and tart,' D'arville said. For those who warn a healthier option, right next door is Crisp Kitchen, serving sobd and stir fry. ’They hove really good sabds, if that's what you're in the mood for, junior Allison Noon said, lunch costs between $11 and $30 and can be bought with Diamond Dollars. Poesono's, an Italian sandwich shop, opened at 2012 N Broad St., formerly U Got Munch.es. They serve cheesesteaks and creative twists on cbssic hoagies, which can be paired with their soup of the day, chopped salod or a crispelle (Italian Nutella and apicot crepe) for dessert. A bite at the shop usually runs $7 to $ 10. Poesono's does not occept Diamond Dolbrs. WRITTEN BY IE AH HAGLER PHOTOGRAPHED BY KATHRYNE VON HEIMS CRO W pLt struts Frot parties and bars around campus keep Temple's night owls entertained during the weekend. However, some students would rather spend their Saturday night at a house show, crowded in a humid bosement watching a little-known band rock out. House shows land somewhere between a party and a large-scale concert featuring genres that range from lo-fi pop to punk or even funk groove fusion. The venues — rowhomes by day, concert halls by night — often close and new ones open, os the tenants who run them move elsewhere. They ore located all throughout the city of Philadelphia, but a few like The Nest and Beaver Dorn, have popped up near campus and become popular among students who attend, play and even host them. Attendees pay about five to ten dollars for entrance making affordability a big draw, but senior Brendan Maher frequents these shows for the ambionce. 1 think that house shows provide a more intimate experience than larger concerts and have a more casual atmosphere,' Maher said. 'In my experience everyone ot house shows, including the band members, have been friendly and welcoming.' House shows usually feature local bonds with a D.I.Y or 'do it yourself' ethic. Sophomore Potrick Chobot helps run the venue 'Trash House' making sure that all of the bands are organized and ready to play. For him, the house show scene is first and foremost about music 'We push for everyone to go see the bands, but we also understand people who just want to hang out and hove o oood night.' he said. Favorites in the Philadelphia house show circuit include pop band 'Radiator Hospital,' psychedelic jazz group 'Kingfisher.' ond fusion jam band 'dot.gov' - formed by Temple students. Bonds from other cities, like 'Girlpool' (from los Angeles) often play in Philfy for its thriving D.I.Y. scene. Sophia Uerbilla. solo artist for lo-fi band 'Harmony Woods.' soys different crowds provide a different experience. 'Some shows are super intimate and the crowds ore reolfy quiet, which can moke it feel like a really unique, cathartic experience for performers,' she said 'Other crowds can be kind of loud ond ore obviously mostly there to hong out with their friends... I find that most of the people I've played in front of care deeply about the music and performance.' House shows offer a unique atmosphere at a low cost, which is reason enough for many to experience them ot least once in their college career. For bonds, it creates the opportunity to become known such os popular pop-punk band 'Modern Baseball' who started their career playing ot house shows around the Philly ond Temple area. 'in o house show, it’s like the person performing is one of your friends," freshman Max Verna said. 'But at an octuol concert, they're like separated from you on a stage.' WRITTEN BY NCK EHY PHOTOGRAPHED BY MJCHAEl SOTTHEBIKE FORREST, BIKE! THE NUMBER OF CYCLISTS RISE AS PROCRAMS AND A STRONG BIKE CULTURE TAKE PLACE ON CAMPUS Bicycles stand out o» Temple. Students zip to classes and bike racks line campus buildings. Director of Sustainability Kathleen Grady, said the number of bikes on campus have increased. The league of American Bicyclists certified Temple os bike-friendly in 2014. This achievement was largely due to the efforts of 'Bike Temple.' run through the Office of Sustainability, which promotes bike use. education and safety on campus. college students, but it is also a new way to explore Philadelphia. 'When you're biking, you see a different part of the city that you wouldn't usually see because you're moving at a different scale since the speed is o little bit slower, and I think that's really awesome.' Grody said. Sophomore Jared Johnson uses his bike os his mode of transportation. 'There could definitely be more bike lanes on the streets, but there's still a lot of interesting places to go to ride your bike, Johnson said. 'lost year we added a ton of bike rocks and this year we’re adding covered bike parking and secure bike parking on campus,' Grady said. 'So if you want to be able to lock your bike up in some type of internal facility, you're going to have that option.' The Bike Temple program also focuses on adding more and protected bike lanes. But the process is more complicated than other improvements since it requires collaboration with the City of Philadelphia. Bike Temple also brought the public bike sharing program Indego on campus two years ago. For routine and maintenance, the Breakaway Bikes repair trailer on campus is opened three days a week and is on accessible resource at the courtyard between Peabody and Annenberg. With Indego, students and Philadelphia residents are able to find an alternative to public transportation on and near campus. ‘We negotiated with Indego to give temple students a discounted rate,' Blake larson, former coordinator for Bike Temple, said. 'It's an important step in continuing the intersection of bicyding and public transit.' Biking is not only on eco-friendly alternative and an easy exercise for busy Second Hand Cycles, a bike-friendly section of Bike Temple, was created in 2014 os a way to recycle bikes left on rocks. Abandoned bikes ore collected, held for a year for owners to claim them, then fixed and sold bock at low prices to students in soles that take place two to three times a year The Second Hond Cycles also aims to get more students biking and combat bike theft which has decreased on campus in recent years As more bike-friendly initiatives take place, the number of bike racks grow and the number of cyclists follow right behind it. "Every year the bike rocks are fuller and fuller,' larson said. 'We’re always hoving to put more ot Tyler because Tyler is like the heart of bicyding on compus.' WRITTEN BY MORGAN SlUTZtCY PHOTOGRAPHED BY ANDRE A ECASSiS 9I GUINNESS WORLD RECORD HOLDERS TEMPLE SMASHES WORLD RECORD WHILE GIVING BACK TO THE COMMUNITY Over o thousand Temple students stood at Itocouras Center on Sept. 19, frantically making sandwiches. It wasn't because they were hungry. They were trying to break the record for most peanut butler and jelly sandwiches mode in an hour— and they succeeded. MCPB (Main Campus Program Board! set a goal to surpass a Guinness World Record of 39,303 sandwiches held by Which Wichs Project PBJ in Texas. The goal was to make 40,000 sandwiches to donate to local food banks. Instead, they mode 49,100. MCPB's Secretary and Director of Community Service Events, Trina Van, become inspired by a smaller event held at her middle school where students made sondwiches to donate After she organized a PB J day last year that yielded 3,000 sandwiches, her advisor suggested to set a world record. ‘I was like. You're crazy,'' Van said. Still, she agreed and began planning in April. At the time, the world record was 26,000 but Which Wichs was set at 39,303 in June. Van wosn't discouraged. Even when people told her she wouldn't be oble to gather at least 1,000 volunteers, she remained optimistic, and rightly so. The line ot liacouras Center wrapped around the building the night of the event. More than 1,300 staff, students, alumni, even local community members participated, making sandwiches in fables of 18 people while the timer counted down the hour for the record. Sophomore Julia Dugan said that once the timer started every table devised o unique system to get the job done. 'It definitely was exhilarating, Van said. 1 know a lot of people had a lot of fun in the last 30 seconds, just making os many sandwiches os possible, Dugan arrived to the event with two roommates. At the table, she did not know anyone else. However, they oil shared a goal, to break the record. The team created efficient ways of making PB J foster including appointing one person to hove the cons of jelly already opened. ‘They hod music playing the whole time ond everyone just worked as a team,' she said. 'Hooter was there and he was walking by. patting people on the beck. H was a good atmosphere.' Along the way. the grape jelly wouldn't spread. The timer ticked marking the time left ond the team quickly switched to the backup orange marmalode and raspberry preserves. Van mostly supervised ond restocked supplies including having to run to the grocery store because they had run out of plastic bags. But, even Van mode sandwiches to help break the record Before the result was announced. Van heard whispers that there were 90 boxes. 'I was like, What? We only needed 80.1 know we beat ill” she said, 'll was a complete surprise but I had to keep it hush." After volunteers celebrated their victory by eating a sandwich of their own, the boxes were then distributed to 15 Philodelphio-orea food banks. 'Having 50,000 sandwiches going out into the city mode me feel a bt better than having them go to waste. Vcn said. ‘It was really nice.'

TEMPLE S RAD DISH CO-OP USES AWARD-WINNING SUSTAINABILITY PRACTICES IN CAFE Rod Dish Co-op, an all volunteer-tun organisation, has addressed the deficit of 'green' food o' Temple and in local surrounding areas, In a little over one year, Rad Dish bos grown into the first successful business model of its kind at a university level. Rad Dish uses a cooperative business model, which encouroges democracy, emphasizing that a business can value people over profits. The team buys local ingredients that travel no more than 150 miles from campus, trading directly with hardworking surrounding area formers’ tables. When ingredients ore not found within the 150 mile range, Rad Dish consults "hyperlocal’ businesses like Green Street Coffee Co., a company created by a Temple alumni, to buy organic, fair trade ingredients which are free from chemicals and pesticides 'When it comes down to it, this group of students created 14+ jobs paying over minimum wage, contributed over 22,000 dollars to the local economy, were cited as leaders in Sustainability’ on four-year campuses, and were featured in over eight publications in just a little over one year of operation,' senior Taylor Stock, former sourcing chairman said. "Why wouldn't you want to be involved in on organization like that?’ SustoinPHL. o local proponent of fair and equitable food access, gave Rad Dish its first major award —Philadelphia 'locavore' Champions— on Aug. 18 The student-run cafe has made on impression beyond Temple, boosting a cheap, seasonal menu of organic and fair trade vegetarian and vegan dishes in a community where they were previously absent. 'Students are the future of sustainability, and we were so imp'essed that the Rad Dish hos turned the 'locovore' spirit into a common place on campus,'Ju ie Hatcher said, Green Philly editor and director of SustainPHl ceremonies. 'Other colleges should pay attention and follow their model.' Undergrod students run Rod Dish, and balance various courses. Many work other part-time jobs; and at Rad Dish design and implement full and equitable menus; assume management such os preparing for the city health inspector; re-evaluoe staff costs; haul compost; panic when they run out of locally sourced chickpeas end beets. Members take pride in their example of youth empowerment as they figure practical solutions for their coop. ’I think it's really easy for people to discount college students os careless or irresponsible, which I don't think is accurate, senior Claire Pope, a Rod Dish volunteer said.

Owl Fix IT Repair, founded by junior information science ond technology major Ryan Ross, is a technology repair shop that fixes phones, tablets and computers ot affordable prices Ross got the idea freshmon year when he posted about his computer repcir skills to o Focebook group of Temple students. A user osked him to look ot an iPhone ond he ended up breaking it. 'Ever since then I found a market'for college kids ond broken phones, so I decided to do my research and really leorn the ins ond outs of the mobile phones we oil use every day," Ross said. Sophomore Kat Von Helms, knew Ross from being in the Diamond Marching Band together. She knew of his work and opted for Owl Fix IT Repair over a larger business when looking to repair her phone. lt wos more affordable ond especially more personable considering I knew the guy,’ she said. 'My experience went very well.' Ross has grown his operation and hired sophomore business major Max Botyskiy os an employee. 'The students who support us are essentially the backbone of the business.' Ross said. 'Without the community as a whole, we wouldn't be at our level of success that we are at today.' Owl Fix IT Repair accepts Apple end Android products. It offers screen repairs, charging port replacements, water damage treatment and more. Prices range from $60 to $ 100. depending on the type and model of the gadget.

He delivers the food to the apartments in Temple Towers, where he currently lives. 'I like to cook because I know that I’m good ot it, and performing services for people that moke them happy makes me happy,' Hymson said. 'Its the reason why I'd love to be a comedian, if it was something that I could live off of. Hymson's sandwiches are some of the cheapest on campus with a price range of $2 to $3.Though he currently does not deliver to other locations, he is looking into hiring delivery workers.

Customers provide their old t-shirts and Weale turns them into a variety of customized Temple shirts, including beached, t.edye, halter, vneck and more. Prices range from $10-$20. Weale said that her business has been successful so for, she said she owes it to students whom hove been both her clients and inspiration.

For the show’s director ond founder Reanne AAoskort. who groduoted in the Foil, it was also the end of an era. Temple's annual production features a shadow cos! of student octors who recite lines, sing and dance along to a screening of the 1975 cult classic comedy horror film. In the tradition of the midnight screenings, audience members are encouraged to shout raunchy callbacks during the movie and throw props like toast and rice at the screen. The show began four years ago when Student Center Operations Monager Kaitfyn Howarth asked the Queer Student Union to cosponsor a screening of the film accompanied by o small singabng.

In the mid-twentieth century, Philadelphia become one of the nations premiere jazz hubs. Jazz clubs and dance halls emerged throughout the city serving os training grounds for some of the most legendary jazz musicians in history. The Cecil B. Moore neighborhood hod a high concentration of jozz dubs and came to be known as the Golden Strip. In the bte 1960s, Philadelphia's thriving jazz scene began to die down. Despite its decline, the city remains a relevant jozzhub. "I think lately the scene is starting to pick back up again,' William Mullen, a jozz education major, said. ‘More jozz clubs are popping up.” Mullen works for Jozz lives Philadelphia, a nonprofit that aims to 'celebrate jozz music through performance, education and community outreach,” according to their online mission statement. Mullen said that Jozz lives Philadelphia and similar organizations are bringing jozz back to the forefront of the city's music scene. Serving os a crucial place for not onfy for jozz students, but olso for educotors and professionals to proctice their craft, Philadelphia is important to jazz. However, jazz is also important to Philadelphia. "You need culture.' jazz performance major Peter Dennis said. 'If you don't have a culture, then you don't have a country and jozz is fundamentally at the roof of America's culture.' Temple fosters its own jazz scene by hosting events on campus throughout the year. For some musicians, jozz has been life changing. ’Jazz to me is so important because it's a voice from within,' Mullen said. 'It allows me to express myself without words, which I think is a raw. pure way of communication with others.' Frogs who visited to teach on open class and then perform at the Underground in the Student Center. Temples jazz majors also participate in Philly's jazz scene through gigs. They perform at jczz clubs, hotel lobbies, weddings, recording studios and even hat shops. Student inform each other of gigs during jam sessions or downtime in the lounge areas at Boyer. The jazz community is o family. Mullen said. 'It's truly a rare culture to be a part of. Jazz musicicns are all about playing with others, listening and appreciating what others are doing musically, and respecting the musicians before them.' Jozz students and faculty perform every Thursday ot The Rite of Swing Jazz Cafe in TPAC. The Jozz Master Closs program invites musicians from all over the country, performers this year include drummer Clarence Penn, saxophonist George Garzone, and saxophone sextet the Moanin' For others, it's spiritual. ‘It's the closest thing I've ever known to a God, Dennis said. ‘It creates its own reality every time the conductor puts his hand down.'

Students participated in the 2016 presidential election in a variety of ways. When Philadelphia hosted the Democratic Notional Convention (DNC) over the summer. Temple partnered with the Washington Center to hold the DNC Academic Seminar: a two-week program where over 150 students attended discussions and lectures about the election's key issues. Junior Martha Sherman and public relations chair for Feminist Majority leadership Association |FMLA). said older generations conclude millennial aren't involved. She said they focus on the legislative process and not enough on Temple students' hands-on activism and political diologue. On campus, there were many opportunities to engage in dialogue like at the Pink Out the Vfofe Millennial Action forum hosted by FMLAonOct. 18. On Oct. 4, Temple's Academic Center on Research in Diversity (ACCORD) held a forum called Race in the Race. Student leaders discussed how the candidates and the medio handled racial issues in the election. Aside from engaging in dialogue, students also acted to provoke change like two students who started a petition on Change.org. In September, they petitioned to cancel classes on Election Day and increase voter turnout among students. Though Temple administrators denied the request, the protest garnered over 800 signatures. ’I think older generations will always criticize younger generations,' Sherman said. '[They] see things like social media as very vain things that can't be useful, but so many young people ore now using it for politics and keeping up with the news.' When Election Day finally come. Temple students stood in lines that stretched down the block of polling locations like the Penrose Recreation Center and Dendy Recreation Center. According to Pennlive. over 500 people hod voted at Dendy by 1 p.m. and hundreds more still stood waiting in line as late as 10 p.m. However, some students decided not to vote. Sherman said that older generations would infer that by some young people not voting it meant they were not involved or they did not care. Senior Tara Kaur said that her refusal to vote was not due to apathy or a lack of information. 'I’m a sociology and health minor, and in a majority of those classes, we talked and discussed the politics and candidates and I realized Bernie was my ideal candidate,’ she said. 'And because he didn't get to the election, I didn't want to compromise.' Freshman and first-time voter, Dylan Ponticel, disagrees with stereotypes that label millennial as politically inactive. 'I think older generations make up the stereotype that young generations aren't involved in politics because they're scored that the younger generation doesn’t share their views and go on the defense,' he said. Still, freshman Katherine Duffield thinks millennial should vote to complete a civic duty, not just to disprove stereotypes. ‘I see it os so important,' she said, 'like I don't care who you stand for as long as you are involved and educated then you con moke a proper decision on what you think is right.’ WRITTEN 3Y ANNA GROSS PHOTOGRAPHED BY SARAH MADAUSINKED STUDENTS THAT HAVE HAD A UNIQUE PHILADELPHIA TATTOO EXPERIENCE Philadelphia is visited by many across the notion just to get tattoos. As the tattoo scene thrives in the city of brotherly love, we wonder whot moke Philadelphia tottoos so popular? 1 love the Philly tattoo scene, I specifically wailed until college to get a tattoo,' Nensah Koneh said, a freshman Philly celebrated the 19th annual "Philadelphia Tattoo Arts Convention' on Feb. 10 to 12, where tattoo artists from around the world crowd The Philadelphia Convention Center for the biggest tattoo convention in the country. At the convention, people get high quality tottoos from over 1.000 artists from over 600 tattoo shops including Philly locals and TV celebrities like Ink Master, Block Ink, LA Ink, and Tattoo Nightmares while performances and appearances from The Enigma, Alakozam The Human Knot and more entertain the crowd. Though the annual convention is also in cities like Cleveland, Wildwood and more, the world famous Philadelphia Tattoo Arts Convention is award winning. 'I got [my tattoo] done at Seven Swords in the Kensington area. Other than New York, I think Philly is probably the next biggest place for tottoos. There's o lot of tottoo culture in the Northeost.' Courtney Summers said, a freshman advertising major. Seven Swords, along with many other shops, continue to hove customers pour into their shops. Many tottoo shops have made the sunny Philly their home, such as The Spirited Tattoo Coalition, and who never fail to mention that they ore the first queer owned tattoo shop in Philadelphia. Located on Baltimore Avenue, the shop encourages a supportive and free atmosphere for their customers, and ortists. There is also Art Machine Productions, a tattoo shop located on Frankford Avenue that continuously raises awareness of topics such os lupus, suicide, and more. The shop even has cn art gallery to go along with the studio. One of the great things about being In college, would be the student discounts. Many tattoo shops tailor their prices so that college students are able to afford their rates. 'I got my tattoo from a place called Northern Liberty Tattoos. The guy who did it, Drew Drumm, was very negotiable. I told him it was my first tattoo and how I was a struggling (college student], so he gave me a tattoo and a piersing for the amount of money that I hod." Nenseh Koneh said. Northern Liberty Tatloo was established in 2009, and is set on 823 N. 2nd St. "It was sort of small, but every inch of the wall was covered with some kind of art. The tattoo artists there were so nice and mode me feel so comfortable.' Koneh said. It may be the college students that keep the city filled with the love of body art, it may be the community in general, and it could very well be the artists that make the Philadelphia tattoo experience so unique. Whatever it is. it seems to be working.

I Dr. Kamel Kholili has been performing AIDS research since its initial breakout in 1981 He earned his PhD in Microbiology from the University of Pennsylvania in 1983. Before joining Temple's faculty 18 years ago, Kholili was an assistant professor in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Thomas Jefferson University. In 1996, he established the Center for NeuroVirology and NeuroOncology at the Medical College of Pennsylvania, Hohnemann University Kholili then established the Center lor NeuroVirology and Cancer Biology at Temple in September 1999 'll does not eliminate the virus from the human body,' Kholili said.

The Ralph Waldo Emerson Award was established in 1960. It is granted for scholarly studies in the fields of history, philosophy and religion. The scholarly studies are based on the analysis of the intellectual and cultural condition of humanity, os it states on their website. Young received a nomination when his publisher submitted a copy, he said. His work stemmed from a history course he teaches. Dissent in America. It surveys American history from colonial days to the present through the eyes of protesters “Dissent is the fuel for the engine of progress. Women wouldn't have gotten the right to vote if they didn't protest for it. Slavery wouldn't hove ended if people didn't protest cgainst it,' Young said. Youngs work ran against four books: Eric Foner, o Pulitzer winner, ond his Gateway to Freedom: The Hidden History of the Underground Railway, Ta-Nehisi Coates Between the World and Me, o book about being block in America and the empire America built on race; E. M. Rose's The Murder of William of Norwich: The Origins of the Blood Libel in Medieval Europe, and Josiah Ober's The Rise and Fall of Classical Greece. He composed his book over the span of 10 years during summers since teaching took most of his time. After approximately seven years of writing, he was not certain whether or not he was going to conclude. “It's a lonely art to write because you sit there for hours and days ond weeks and months end you're writing and you don't know if anybody is ever going to read it, if it will ever get published. Bui, you've got to if it's your passion to da it. you've just got to do it,' he said. Young said his involvement at Temple played a part in his writing. Since 2002, Young hos been engaging with his students at Teach-ins. They gather on Friday afternoons to discuss contemporary implications of historic events. Even his students were on inspiration for his book. He said that as a teacher, he does not view himself os the one that knows the most. He views teaching os an opportunity to unanimously explore and for everyone to learn from each other. “I wont to learn as much os I want you to learn,' Young said. E. M. Rose was announced as the 2016 Ralph Waldo Emerson Award winner on Oct. 4. But Young said he is honored to have been nominated against well-known names.

The renovations closed off the entire left side of the library, taking away 100+ study desks and a handful of padded study chairs which also forced the reference stacks to relocate. 'We did our best in the library not to lose any study seats in the process, but we did hove to eliminate a number of computer work stations,' Lucia said. ‘The thought from [the Facilities Management Office] wos that since we will be getting o new library in two years, we coukJ give up some spcce for this current priority and deal with the relatively short-term inconvenience.' Study spaces, computers and printing services are still available in Poley, but they are limited. On April 19, 2016, ground wos broken to signal the start of a state-of-the-art new library designed by international library architect company, Snohetfa. In an interview, Temples Board of Trustees Chair Patrick O'Connor said that this i$ one of Temple's biggest projects in decades.

The new library will be on 13»h street. Pdette, and Liacouras walks and will be the size of a city block. It took the place of Barton Hall, o science building, which wos demolished in order to make space for the new project. Students can expect study rooms and quiet areas, breakout rooms, a cafe, an advising center, 3D printing and much more from the new library. With a large green roof and an outdoor balcony, it will be a very eco-friendly building on Temple's campus Across 13th street will be the university's first open green quadrangle, something that will make Temples campus slond out from other urban campuses. The new library will also have an online ordering system that retrieves books from a robotic storage facility removing having to search through stacks of books. The online ordering system will hold all of Temple's resources in a condensed oreo ollowing more space to students' other needs. The fourth floor will have open stacks for all of the students that enjoy browsing. 'The new Temple library will present students with a diverse eco-system of learning and study environments from traditional quiet reading oreas to many rooms of various sizes available by reservation for group study and interaction.'

But Temple combats monotony and dislikes offering a wide arrange of refreshing and stimulating courses General Education courses (GenEds) implement a foundation for scholarly excellence and develop discipline, focusing on students' ability to think critically, comprehend historical ond contemporary issues and communicate adequately in writing and speaking, according to a Temple website. Students benefit academically and professionally from GenEds and are encouraged to engage as citizens in a diverse and globalized world, evaluate various sources of information. Teens and Tweens, a course that fulfils the Human Behavior category of GenEd, focuses on the impact topics like family, race, education, drugs have on an adolescent's development. Students are encouraged to think outside of themselves and develop an appreciation and understanding for the experiences their peers undergo. 'I en|Oy that the content is so relevant for the age group that I'm teaching. Realistically the class is about them ond about their lives and about their experiences,' Jaclyn VanOrden said, a Teens and Tweens professor. She said it's easy for students to open up ond talk about the effects these topics hove on them because it's fresh in their memory, because they ore experiencing it right now. Temple's Human Behavior GenEds address the relationships among individuals and communities. Human Behavior courses may spotlight this spectrum of relationships in genera! or through specialized perspectives and analyze them within unique themes 'Teens and Tweens is an interesting class that looks directly at the individuals who take it,’ Teens and Tweens student Tiffony Coles said, a strategic communications major with a concentration in public relations. The Science and Technology GenEds help students understand how scientific phenomena and technological change affects humans and the planet These courses focus on not only informing students about the scientific process, but in also sparking a newfound appreciation of scientific studies and theories. Disasters: Geology v$. Hollywood is a course that compares science to Hollywood's media factors Students analyze Hollywooc films that encompass geological phenomena and discern whether they ore realistic or not. Assignments in the class include looking ct volcanic activities. Three people choose a volcano from a long list of strange ond various kinds of volcanoes, then discuss the variety of volcanic activities. Geology vs. Hollywood professor, Natalie Flynn said. Students may be hesitant to try courses like this one but Flynn dispels hesitation for science GenEds. 'Don’t fear your GenEds, embrace them. Jump right in with both feet and just realize you can handle science.' Flynn said. The U.S. Society GenEd enhance students' comprehension of history, society', culture, and political system in the United States. Sludents are challenged to observe end form conclusions, obout U.S. society and culture. Gender in America is one course that fulfils the U.S. Society GenEd requirement.

Students are required to complete interactive assignments such os: examining gender as it is incorporated in everyday life and relevant situations like in Halloween and its gendered costumes.

TEMPIE UN.VERSITY PHOTOGRAPHYTEMPLE’S LEGACY ALUMS INFLUENCE A TEMPLE MADE EXPERIENCE FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION Freshman Michael Brady is one of over 450 freshmen with o parent who graduated from Temple. According to Temple Now, that number has never been higher -at least doubling in the post decade. Brody's relationship to Temple begins with his mother, Christine Brody, who earned her liberal arts undergraduate degree from Temple in '88 and then earned her MBA from the Fox School of Business in '96. For nearly 20 years, she has remained as the Director of School and College Programs in Temple's Office of Alumni Relations. 'I did not have Jo push him to go to Temple,' she said Michael Brady, the son, grew up hearing stories about the school and enjoyed attending football end bosketball games. Brady said Temple's atmosphere and ambiance that attracted him to the school. He has not yet declared a major, but if he chooses a track within the Fox School of Business, his mother hopes he has one of her post professors: John McClendon. "He was phenomenal, she said. He still remembers me... It would be so cool for him to have the same professors I hod. Temple was also a family affair for the married couple Adam and Ashley Ridall, who had on intimate relationship throughout high school and both graduated from Temple in 2012. like Brady, Ashley Ridall's mother, alumna Jackie Sinclair, influenced her to attend Temple. The Ridall's grew up outside Scranton, Pa., for Ashley Ridall, who lived in a rural area her whole life. Temple was a good fit. Her high school sweetheart, Adam Ridall, also liked the change of scenery. 'I was tired of being in the country where everything was spread out, Ridoll said. For her, the subway was new, exciting and fosl. Growing up in a rural area without a subway or a transportation option like SEPTA made it harder to go from one place to another. lt took some getting used to because I never lived in the city before or anywhere else outside my hometown,' she said. Temple provided an easy time maintaining their romantic relationship because they lived together off campus from their sophomore to senior years. Even when they lived in residence halls as freshmen, they spent a lot of time together Wedding bells were ringing by 2015, just three years after they graduated and the two say they do not want the family relationship to Temple to end with each other. ‘When Adam and I have kids. I hope that one of them goes to Temple. It's become a family heritage,' Ridall said. 'My mom and I went there. I hope to pass it onto my own kids. Temple is a great school ond I cherish my time there.' WRITTEN BY DAVID BlOCK PHOTOGRAPHED BY CHRIS KENDG. TYl K EXCELLENCE IN ACADEMICS STUDENT ATHLETES EXCEL BOTH IN AND OUT OF THE CLASSROOM About 12 years ago, the academic standing for Temple athletes was one of the worst in the country. The footboll team wos the lowest in the nation based on graduation rote, GPA, and academic progress ratings. This sparked a need for raising the bar in athletes' academic standard. Senior Director, Justin Miller, entered in 2010 to the Nancy Donald Resnick Academic Support Center for Student-Athletes, better known os the Resnick Center ’Coming in, the numbers were improving But to me, it wos all about raising expectations and raising the standards for students," Miller said. The Resnick Center has a goal to help student-athletes that ore already facing hectic competition schedules and practice schedules and aside from that, pressure from dossroom expectations and personal goals. From cdmission to graduation time, the Resnick Center offers advising, tutoring, specialized services, assistive technology and more to the approximated 450 student-athletes that compete in 19 different men’s and women's varsity sports. ‘With the support we have in sort of this general, cultural shift, in my words. I say it's shifting away from eligibility and it’s about success. Its about individual student achievement or its about what each student capable of. Miller said. Athletes are provided o team advisor, an academic center, team study-hall time, peer tutors centered around their schedules and benefit from priority registration and academic planning. Academic planning plays o beneficial role for football players especially, os they are able to complete degrees in three and a half years. This then allows them to focus on training for the NFl. For other students, it allows them to pursue higher education, according to Miller. The athletic deportment has achieved a GPA over 3.0 for 10 consecutive semesters, a first in Temple history. Lost spring, the department received a GPA of 3.23. Justin Miller, Senior DirectorStephan Marshall, Temple alumnus Temple alumnus Stephaun Morshcll played football during his undergroduote years while studying medio studies and production Marshall completed his undergroduote in three and o half years and now pursues a master's degree in globalization and development communication at Temple. Although it was difficult to find a balance between school and football, especially after just having transitioned into college, the support Temple staff offered helped Marshall, he said "As you learn your strengths and weaknesses, you kind of have a gome plan of how to attack semesters,' Marshall said. Success in the classroom attributed much success for him in the game He found 'hot the better he did academically, the better he performed on the field. Coaches also serve os a method of accountability and motivation for the students. If an athlete foils to fulfil their academic requirements, they may be forced to sit during practice or even miss out on performance time. The staff motivates students by remembering what they study and helping them with study techniques as well. 'The athletic experience shouldn't hinder anyone's accomplishments, Miiler said WRITTEN BY ALEXIS RODGERS PHOTOGRAPHED BY ASHLEY MARY ALEXIn the fall semester of 2014, 88% of freshman signed a new academic partnership known as Fly in 4, This agreement was designed to help students successfully graduate in four years. The programs main goal is to assist in making college more affordable and reducing debt, according to Vice Provost for Academic Affairs, Assessment and IR, Jodi levine laufgraben By graduating in four years, students ore able to sov© money and attend further education eorly or on time if planned. According to the Fly in 4 website, an extra year of college costs approximately $35,000. The national average studentJoan debt is around $29,400 while the interest rate generally adds another $ 17,000. according to the Fly in 4 website. The Fly in 4 agreement outlines steps, also colled checkpoints, students must do in a semester in order to stay on track eoch semester. ’They're the kinds of things that we believe lead to on on lime graduation and the things the University will do. laufgraben about the required checkpoints. One of these checkpoints is to meet with an academic advisor to ensure students are following o healthy ccodemic plan. Students are also required to complete 30 credits eoch semester in order to odvonce in class standing (by doing this, students also complete another checkpoint). Fly in 4 members are given priority registration to ensure that they receive the classes they need to keep up with their plan. The focus on Fly in 4 is getting students focused on what they need to do to graduate lime and the university community focused on what we need to do to help students meet that goal,' said laufgraben. 93% of freshmen storting in the Fall semesters of 2015 and 20)6, signed the Fly in 4 academic agreement. Students are becoming mare dedicated to graduating on time and saving money, while performing better in the classroom. It has been observed that students who sign the Fly in 4 partnership have higher academic performance than those who choose not to, laufgraben said. This program allo-.vs students more lime to complete beneficial activities for their major while, at the same time, working toward a timely academic goal in the classroom. "Fly in 4 gives the students the room to do undergraduate research, Internships, study abroad because the key emphasis in Fly in 4 is academic pfenning," laufgraben said. If a student is dedicated to achieving their degree in four years, but obstacles arise with class scheduling, Fly in 4 has o positive solution. Students that compete all their checkpoints and still cannot graduate on time, Temple will pay lor ony remaining course or courses. Freshman can sign the Fly in 4 agreement online before storting closses at the university.

While growing up, Ross hod friends and a friends parent who hed disabilities. Not one of those people compelled her to work with people with disabilities. 'I don't know what the turning point was, it just happened, said Ross. Temple sophomore Jessica Consfcmzi's perceptions of people with disabilities chonged after taking Ross's doss. 'Disability doesn't define you,' she soid. Insteod of focusing on the wheelchair user's' disabilities, she learned to focus on their abilities.

One of the greatest of these resources is Temple's location itself- Philadelphia. Students can access the city with ease ond convenience. Many courses even require students to dive into Philadelphia's history and culture. Philfy is a remarkably diverse city, extending to Temple students countless experiences at the lip of their fingers. It is a city booming with trends, history, social events, educational opportunities, and unique involvement. The Stella Elkins Tyler School of Art offers a prestigious Gloss Program that ranked second in the United States by the U.S. News and World Report. The Glass Program enhances students' artistic, conceptual, and technical development. The professors of Tyler's Gloss Program have extensive training in glass blowing and o majority of them explore and practice other mediums of art as well. A field trip to the studio and home of Paul Sfankard is offered through Tyler's Glass Program. Sfankard is considered the father of modern glass paperweights and is renowned one of the top glossblowers of oil time. Sfankard is most acknowledged for featuring astonishing glass flowers in his paperweights. The General Education course Exploring the Cosmos, which fulfills the Science and Technology Gen Ed, also allows students to dive into the Philly culture. The course introduces students to the basics of astronomy and examines how astronomy illustrates time, the fundamentals of observing from the planet Earth, bow to utilize light and telescopes, the evolution of stars and galaxies, basic cosmology, and a brief analysis of the pursuit for extraterrestrial life. Incorporated in this course is a trip to the Franklin Institute, a science museum and the center of science education ond research in Philadelphia. Students visit the Institute's Pels Planetarium and Sky Observatory to encounter rare sky phenomenons, such as meteor showers and eclipses without the interference of weather, pollution, or city lights. "The Franklin Institute serves not only to give students a chance to observe the actual night sky through a telescope, but also os an excuse to go and see the interesting parts of the city," Exploring the Cosmos professor, Matthew Newby scid Students must also attend a Star Party where omateur and local astronomers bring their gear to various sites to gather and goze at the cosmos while participating in compelling discussion. Students are able make their own telescope to keep in the lob portion of this activity. ‘[Philadelphia] has a lot more resources than a lot of people realize, I think. There are a lot of museums downtown, a lot of history down there, and knowing that it's there is half the battle to being able to go out and explore.' Newby said.

The team won the City 6 championship at Huntingdon falley Country Club, a 6,878 yard, Par-70 course, defeating Villonovo in the first playoff hole. The Cty 6 championship is a tournament consisting of the six Philadelphia universities which include Temple University, Vilianova Univer: ly, Drexel University, St. Joseph's University, the University of Pennsylvania, and laScI e University.

Although the team is comprised of mainly freshmen and sophomores. Soeth thinks the team has made great progress. 'I think me ond the teom hove mode very good progress on the course and off. All of us ore like a family, and I think that translates on the course. We did not start the year as we expected, but I think that motivated us to keep working hard throughout the season As I said, we are still very young and continue to learn as we continue into the spring ’ One of the key factors in a team's success is its chemistry ond bond, os the players are around the same graduation year. ‘We spend so much time together because we all hove the same schedule. It is really easy to all be friends. Also a few of us are all very similar on the golf course, so we are constantly helping each other with golf too,' said Wren.

On the scoreboard again a familiar name: Jorge Gomez Sanchez. The senior, coming out of Talovero De la Reina. Spain has been o quintessential figure in Temple's midfield for the past two seasons. In his first season at Temple, os a junior, he scored 13 goals while he also registered three assists. This season, Sanchez hod 10 goals and three assists after only 10 games. Sanchez's journey to the United Stores started when coach Dovid MacWilliams decided to recruit him after a match. “(The coach] told me that [Temple] was one of the best schools in the area ... to play soccer and to study a good major here is what convinced me to come," Sanchez said. The rest is history. Despite the difference in soccer culture, the U.S. style more physical based and the Spaniard styfe based more on tactics, Sanchez was able to combine his knowledge and use it to his benefit. ‘[From Spain], I learned how to move on the field, how to score goals ... [Playing for Temple], I became more “mature” in my soccer, and I gained more strength and fitness.” Sanchez said. Not only did Sanchez impress the MLS scouts, he also left a good impression on his teammates. Carlos Gracia, a leader in the Owls defence said that Sanchez is the first person defending and first pressing the defenders of the opponent.Gracia said that Sanchez's natural ability to score easily is something that no one else in the midfield possesses. As a successful senior member of the team, Sanchez gave tips to freshmen players. ’They have to be patient They come here very young; they have to adopt to the leogue and they hove to leorn.' he said Gracia said Sanchez is a role model for the freshmen and on inspiration for the players that want to be successful in the future. As a senior groduoting from Temp'e, Sanchez recounted some of his best moments in a Temple jersey. He said the victory goal ogainst Penn State was one of his most memorab'e moments. Also, his first game as a Temple student where he scored over 10 goals against Manhattan. 'And the lost game of this season when I scored against UCF in overtime, Sanchez said Although he is graduating, he said he has faith in the new recruits and trusts that the freshmen will have great seasons to come. Sanchezs first objective after he graduates is to go pro and enter the MLS SuperDraft which hoppened in January. Garcia believes that Sanchez is '100% reedy. He just needs the opportunity to show how good he is. Sanchez s dream is to continue to ploy the gome that he loves for the rest of his life.

The team finished the 2015-2016 season with a 3.5 cumulative GPA. the highest in the deportment. Associate Director of Athletic Communications, Karen Angell said. The team was recognized for their academic achievements during a football game's halftime, this was not the first time either 'Every time was so rewording," senior Morgan Glassford said. Head Coach Bonnie Rosen said the lacrosse players recruited from high schools have an identity of striving on the field and in the classroom. ’I appreciate it when people ocknov ledge the work that my players do both, on the field and in the classroom,' said Rosen. Rosen and her coaching staff emphasize the importance of leorning. Despite the players' rigorous athletic schedule, the coaches ensure 'he 'student' part of their title- student athlete- is fulfilled. Academics were always important to coach Rosen who majored in prephysical therapy at the University of Virginia and still became All-American in locrosse. She took care of school first and obtained her diploma in 1992. From 1993 to 2005, she then played locrosse for the U.S. Women's National Team, and in 1997 and 2001 her team won the world cup. She was inducted into the 2010 Notional lacrosse Hall of Fame. The cooches hold a goal of helping athletes reach academic excellence. But, whether the players hove full athletic scholarships or not, the athletes know they hove a responsibility to fulfill on the field ond the classroom, the coach said ‘You wouldn't know the difference who wos on scholarship and who wosn't, Rosen said. She said coming to college wos not a challenge for most athletes since they played multiple sports in high school. Being busy all year-round was nothing new to them but the coach said the key element is in prioritizing time, which she attributes to her teams' ocodemic and athletic success During the fall and winter - the Owls' off season - they hone their skills and improve their condition. The ccoch said the fall is a chance to develop and compete to then foretell how they'll do. In October, the Owls competed against LaSalle University, Saint Joseph's University. Viilanovo University, and Drexel University in the 10th annual Phllly 5 tournament, where they only fell short to Drexel. The tournament allowed the Owls to see their strengths end weaknesses Cooch Rosen was pleased with how the tournament progressed, her players' ability to function os a team improved. 'We started off slow and not so oggressive,' said Rosen. ’At the end of the day, we were really playing well as a team.'

Sherrill said at the time of the interview They said it felt bittersweet playing in their lost year, but they were confident in their ability to win the games against the next opponents one last lime.

WRITTEN 8Y LONG NGUYEN PHOTOGRAPHED BY NATE HARVEYDuring the summer of 2015. the city o( Philadelphia started the restoration of East Park Canoe House, home to Temples Men's Crew and Women's Rowing teams. The city and the lenfest Foundation committed $5.5 million toward the project. In November 2016, rowing and crew members moved into their renovated boathouse. The East Park Canoe House holds significant importance to Temples Men's Crew and Womens Rowing. In 2013, Temple cut seven varsity sports including Men's Crew and Women's Rowing due to inadequate resources. The renovation announcement returned Mens Crew and Women's Rowing to their former status os varsity sports in 2014 and the two teams had been wailing for the project completion since. Upon the first visit, team members were happy about the changes. Prior to the opening of the boathouse. Men's Crew and Women’s Rowing teems stored their boats in tents, outside. Whenever inclement weather occurred, the boots and other equipment got dirty or damaged 'It is great for the equipment and the athletes to move into a more comfortable environment. We ore really thankful,' Alyssa O'Donnell said, assistant coach of Women's Rowing. Sam Vecchione, o Men's Crew member, said the improved boathouse is a phenomenal luxury. The boathouse provides the team a place of storage and organization for the equipment with enough space to store extra gear. It is also a warm indoor area where the team can practice during bad weather. 'It is nice to have a warm indoor area where you can do your thing instead of rushing to avoid the [weather] elements and eventually go home dirty,' Vecchione said. Not only is there space for the equipment, but the team has locker rooms for their personal equipment, a 'luxury" tents couldn't provide. 'll was pretty cool; I hove only been in the tents so for, but for the sophomores, juniors, and seniors, it is extra special. It is cod to be part of Temple history.'’ Claire Savage, of Women's Rowing, said. Vecchione and Joey Nguyen of crew, believe that the boathouse will likely factor into the success of the team this season. 'We were proud before to be the tough guys from outdoor and now we can take that same grind, that same grit, that some intensity, and bring it into a more luxurious setting,' Vecchione said. He soid with the new boathouse the crew and rowing teams have the potential to become a prime destination for high schod recruits. Nguyen said that when Men's Crew Head Coach, Brian Perkins, mentioned the opening of the boathouse, it eased his decision to attend Temple. 'It’s only going to get betier for men and women's rowing. The tents were not ideal for boats, equipment, and athletes, so this means something for everyone.' Coach O'Donnell said 'It was obsdutely fantastic... it is a phenomenal luxury, and we are especially grateful to have it,' Vecchione said.

The required courses include a national park service course and a land management course But academic courses alone do not earn the Temple student job placement. They must have two paid internships.

In Su :er II, students ore then required to hove o different internship, this one primer !y dealing with the low enforcement div v n, which is responsible for visitor and resource protection.

Temple University history professof and Nationol Park Service Special Projects Coordinator, Seth Biuggeman soid that certain students might initially shy away from the ProRanger program due to misperceptions. Bruggemon said some students believe that to work for the national park service meens to be compelled to be hyper pattiotic and hyper nationalistic. 'There's this belief, this sense that notional parks are only committed to nature preservation and thot it's quasi militaristic and maybe a little fuddyduddy, said Bruggemon. 'But the truth about the notional park service it hos 400 units and exists everywhere in the city.' Instead, the participants in the program will explore ways the parks can help experience a historical perspective. 'Americans can look in the mirror and critique our post and understand what directions we've gone that weren't so great so thot we can imagine new ones in the future, he said. Part of the goal is to convince millennial thot the national parks provide opportunities for 'ail of us,' Bruggemon said. He said that os an agency, they also have c goal of accommodating millennial interests. The courses Bruggemon teaches for the ProRanger program include history of the national park service, and a course called Imperil Promise. He explained thot the latter provides heritage interpretation within the notional parks. Supervisory Park Ranger and ProRanger Program Manager, Adrian Fernandez, said that when the program started in 2004, they had a shortage of pork ranger law enforcement applicants. 'People thought being a ranger meont having to work out in the woods, Fernandez said. 'That's not true. There are parks in cities like Boston and Philadelphia where there’s a need for law enforcement rangers. There ore different types of parks to choose from, city, desert, rural, and water.'

She was also a staff writer for Temple's chapter of Her Campus and was loter promoted as the Arts and Entertainment Editor. 'Her Campus was probably one of my favorite things," Isaac said.

Isaac discovered at around 13 years old that she wanted to be a journalist, tx her experiences at Temple helped shaped what kind of journalist she war ted to be. She said one of her fovorite things while at Temple, was getting on experience as an editor os she hod to manage the responsibilities of a staff ore publication. She was in charge of staff writers, hosting events, writing content herself and more. Coming to college, Isaac was unsure what route she wanted to take withn journalism.

"My school hod little to no diversity so, one of the reasons why I wonted to come to Temple was becouse I wanted to experience diversity and experience other cultures." Senior Heather Dunn found the diversity that first reeled her in to Temple right os a freshman at the Johnson Hardwick residence halls U H) and through her invofvement in clubs. “There are people on those (| H) floors that I'm still friends with today. What mokes Temple students such great people and so diverse is that you could go from one club to another and meet completely different people,' she said. Fastforwarding to her senior year, Dunn plans on taking a year off to deal with student debt and to prep for the l-SAT's but she still choose Temple as her first option for law school which she plans on starting by 201 8. 'Temple has an absolutely phenomenal law school. Their trial program is amazing and they hove some really good credentials. They also have really awesome partnerships with firms downtown.’ Dunn said. Before deeding for a college, Dunn knew she wanted an environment with opened opportunities in the work industry. She said she opted to get rid of feeling sheltered like she felt back home. Temple offered strong alumni connections and taught her the value of a dollar, the value of diversity, how to broaden her horizons and the perks of SEPTA. 'I hod never used public transportation before I came to Temple,' she said. “And I just learned how to speok to people. I'm a tour guide teaching me public speaking skills in addition to learning how to communicate with people. In her junior year, Dunn interned with the Philadelphia District Attorneys office (DA). During onother internship this past summer with a private firm, the district attorney's office called her and offered her a part-time position which she accepted. She worked there three days o week for eight-hours and even received a promotion. She officially became a paralegal with the district attorneys office. While she doesn't have any definite p'ans postgraduation, Dunn knows she wants to keep the living the city life Temple has offered. "I would love to go bock to the DA's office os a prosecutor,' she said. 'Its something different every day You get o learn the in s and out's of the city through it. You gel to see the city through a different light and you get to meet a lot of really cool people.'

It has been providing its cheerful and melodic auto for over 90 years at gomes and at the same time long-lasting friendships for its band members. The bond received over 600K views on Youtube on their Panic! At The Disco Show half-time performance and has been featured on radio stations like Radio 1045. 'Temple hos made their mark in the band world by playing non-traditional halftime music and absolutely crushing it, Co ?gemarching.com said in an article. Bond members hove even appeared on CBS's Madam Secretary, and USA TODAY Co ?ge featured the band in their 5 college marching band covers you absolutely have to hear. The bond has gotten attention in other outlets, even Twitter. But it doesn't stop there, senior Rebecca Remphrey, a fouryear member, is now saying goodbye to what she said shaped her life in a monumental way. Remphrey joined TUDMB her first semester of college. She hod been invoked in marching band throughout high school where she built many friendships and enjoyed the welcoming environment her high school team offered. She seeked for this some experience at Temple. 'Who knows what I would've done with oil the time we spend ot rehearsals and practicing, Remphrey said as she acknowledged that without TUDMB she would have not had the group of friends she has now. Though the structure of the band program has remained the same, with practice times still being three days a week and musicians still having to memorize drill charts and various songs, Remphrey sees a difference from when she first joined to now, her graduation time. She said the love the university hos grown to have for TUDMB has affected how she views herself os a member. 'The amount of pride I have for the organization hos exponentially increased because the respect our peers and the university hove for the organization hos been very positive. she said. In her four years os a member of the band, Remphrey has mode a lot of friends, has memorized a plethora of sho-ws that were only performed once - her favorite song was light 'Em Up by Fall Out Boy - and hos made memories that will bst a lifetime. Remphrey said being part of marching bond allowed her to grow as a woman Elizabeth Dess is a freshman member in the band. She knew she needed to be a part the moment she first saw the band on YouTube like Remphrey. she was a member of marching band in high school and knew she wanted to continue the band experience in her college career.

They divide their time to provide rich, melodic textures on and off the stage (in the classroom.) Professors who are affiliated with the all string ensemble, teoch aspiring musicians the necessary skills to become innovative, talented, and intense performers. Boyer College enrolls on estimated average of 800 students to learn, engage, create, and compose with the option of individualized coaching. Although the orchestra participates in national contributions, that does not slop these professors from offering their expertise in one-on-one instruction and even group coaching at Boyer College. These Boyer professors strategically devote their time to provide in-depth lessons to new and up and coming musicians, providing enriching experiences in many ensembles that cover a broad range of repertoires. In their other role, professors join the Philadelphia Orchestra and host concerts at places like the Mann Center and Kimmel Center during the summer. These musicians dedicate their summers no! only to perform, but also to expand their community involvement and maintain international connections through concerts, research, instruction, and adjudication. The orchestra does not only perform in the Philadelphia area, but also across the region ornamenting stages and oudiences with harmonies from the skilled flutists, oboists, percussionists, clarinetists, timpanists and hornists. The group travels abroad serving as cultural ambassadors through residency partnerships with organizations and civic-governmental institutions around the world As a tradition, they also hold community engagement opportunities for children and adults to experience educational music enrichment. The Boyer College of Music and Dance and The Philadelphia Orchestra hove similar visions. They continue to defy creative limitations by maintaining traditions of excellence through service, leadership, and artistic innovation in conjunction with a number of musical creators committed to the values of both organizations. While managing dozens of students throughout ecch semester, the professors monoge their time with the orchestra and prioritize events, even if it requires long nights and weekends filled with composition and instrumental practice. These instrumentalists hove also received many awards for their contributions in the musical world. Foculfy members have been selected os Grcmmy nominees and hove received scholarships and fellowships during their career. To hove these extraordinary men and women educate and facilitate young, passionate students toward producing authentic, innovative, and textured pieces demonstrates a devotion to musical arts. Because Boyer strives for artistic excellence, the college has also produced a number of extensive compositions that led the college to receive three Grammy nominations and invitations to perform in national conferences, a rank in the top 10 lor number ol degrees earned by Metropolitan Opera Musicians, and a feature in newspapers, magazines, and on the television show Good Morning America.

The program prepares students to become officers in the military while teaching discipline, lime management, the benefits of hard work, ond more Freshman Angelika Mascorinas, a psychology major, joined ROTC due to a hometown influence. She grew up around Fort Meade. Maryland, what she said is a military-based town. "The military lifestyle really intrigued me and I wanted to be a part of that," she soid. Mascorinas said she loves the program os it opens doors to many opportunities, but that it can be challenging because of its intensity. Balancing schoolwork ond the program isn't an easy thing to do. Both Mascorinas and freshman Zari Weaver, a neuroscience major, noted that time management is important but difficult to manage as a part of ROTC. Weaver spends about 20 hours a week completing tasks for the program, from training and working out, to doing work for specialized classes she is required to take like Military Science. Weaver said each class starts with a decent number of students, but that number trickles down as the weeks go on and the program becomes more difficult She said there were more than 100 freshmen in the program ol the beginning of the fall semester, but roughly 50 were left by the end. She said there were only 14 seniors in the program this year. But everyone's priority is being a student above all else. 'Even though the army is important to them, your education and your major always come first, regardless," Mascorinas said. Mascorinas does her schoolwork at the headquorter where tutors are readily available to them when needed. "At the ROTC Kecdquarters in Ritter Hall, I bring all my schoolwork down there. They have computer labs, they have a printer, ond a lot of us study down there. So. I do a lot of my 'outside-thearmy stuff at the headquarters,' she said. Both, Mascorinas and Weaver said in the future, they want to help others. The military is often associated with violence, guns, and the killings of others during warfare. While often times violence is prominent, there is also a side of the military involving human aid and humanitarian relief. Moscatinos hopes to be contracted to the army to become on army psychologist. 'Working with people with PTSD reclly interests me,' Mascorinas said. Weaver hopes to be a psychiatrist in the army because her mom's Navy Chaplain position influenced her. "In all fields of the military, they're the person you confide in with complete confidentiality. Because I am already interested in psychology I feel like I would be doing a justice by putting my interest in a field where I know people would need support and help," Weaver said.

Liocouros started as dean of the School of low in 1972. Ten years later, he was oppointed as the seventh president of the university. Liocouros served an 18-year presidency until the year 2000, a presidential term only founder Russell Con wells 35-year term exceeds in length liacouros also served as dean of the Beasley School of law for 10 years, a low professor and later a university chancellor. One of liocouros' projects, 'Temple Town, consisted of renovating old facilities and constructing on-campus housing (including 1940, White Hall, and Temple Towers), liacouros hoped to create a campus that would capture the eyes of families across the globe. ‘There is no doubt in my mind that he laid the groundwork for the nationally respected university that Temple s today. Theobald said in a statement. Today, Temple's ccmpus is home to thousands of student from around the world. The university evolved under his leadership from a small-commuter college to a world-renown institution of higher education. Othei projects also took place during his legacy, like the moking of Tuttleman learning Center, Shusterman Hall and the home of the athletic department, the liacouros Center. liacouros had a focus on Temple athletics where just John Chaney’s basketball program ranked number one in the nation. With Chaney, the Owls made it to 17 NCAA Tournaments and five NCAA regional finals. On November 2010, he suffered a stroke that paralyzed him and took away his ability to speak but, Liacouros still attended basketbcll games rooting from a wheelchair. He was an advocate of diversity, especially in the law school during his deanship there. He hired multiple African-American professors and recruited African-American graduate students. ‘He almost single-handedly chonged the complexion of the law school. There are hundreds and hundreds of African-Americon and lolino lawyers who ore the beneficiaries of his efforts at integrating the school os well os the practice of law in this city. Carl Singley, one of these recruits, told Philly.com He established one of the first Affirmative Action programs in the country, helped the law schools women enrollment rise from 3 to 50 percent and even implemented a North Philadelphia legal aid office for low-income residents. The Temple University Hospital was also constructed under his commission where services not only expand to the Philadelphia community, but innovation is also cultivated through lop ranking researches and breakthroughs. ‘He would do anything he could for the university’s greater good, whether that was before, during or after his term as president.' Theobald said in a statement. Temple held a memorial in his honor on May 17, 2016, at the Temple Performing Arts Center where the liacouros family donated to the Peter and Ann Scholarship Fund granted to Temple students with academic prowess and financial need. "When you visit the Liacouros Center or stroll down liocouros Walk or ponder Temple s greatness, we should give thonks to the man who devoted so much of himself to our university, who was widely beloved, who dared to bend history, who reshaped Temple University's main campus, who was a fierce defender of those in need and those denied social justice," Richard M. Englert who wos chancellor at the time, said at the ceremony.

Mom ood DadLETTER FROM THE • EDITORThe amount of lime, effort and handwork implemented in Templar this year, only shows how dedicated and proud Owls are of Temple. It is hard managing classes, work, other activities, one's personal life and making the deadline for our yearbook, but It demonstrates that we fake our careers serious and that Temple has helped moke well-rounded professionals out of us. Our warrior team overcame mony difficulties, including losing five members. But. our adviser, John Dicarlo, once told me that in a team, 'sometimes you just have to get lucky ' I om proud of the devotion and expertise everyone work with especially our design team under the leadership of Phoebe Mikolonis, who spent lote nights and early mornings designing, submitting pages to print, and mote. Thank you John Dicarlo for being available at four in the morning or even at four in the oflernoon. With great pleasure we also thank oui representative from out printing company Mutdocc Saunders for his positive personality, for his help, and for believing in us. If you look through post yearbooks, you will find a wove of distinction, respect and esteem for a 'pastor, soldier, scholar, president, orator, and friend ol man,’ as Templars first volume reads. The class of 1923 talk about none other than our president and founder, Dr Russell Herman Conwell Though today we don’t have the privilege to personally engage with Dr. Conwell who had such vision ond passion for people and education, roughly 93 years later, Templar still dedicates its volumes to people that f»ave kept these same values our founder deotly upheld. We dedicate to those who have been like pastors, to our soldier-fike seniors who fought their way to graduation, to exemplary scholars serving as teachers, friends of our students and leoders in the city. I hope, ond on behalf of the Templar team, that when you open the 2016-2017 yearbook you see a pastor, you see a friend of man, that you see on those pages o soldier and overcomer. We hope you see the big army of owls Dr. Conwell left right on Brood Street.. 'Siri, tell me my location." ‘Temple Owl, you are here.
