Saturday mornings are not usually the peak time for college students to be out and about on campus. Saturday mornings in October are even less so. But on October 30, students and neighbors alike could be seen lining 16th Street in North Philadelphia for blocks behind the Student Pavilion. With temperatures dropping into the 30s, the anticipation was high for President Barack Obama’s last-minute visit to Temple University.
Accompanied by candidates Joe Sestak, Dan Onorato, Governor Rendell and Mayor Nutter, Obama worked to encourage the 1,500 students who packed the building to get out and vote. After the first students were let in following six hours of waiting on the street, the Pavilion quickly filled up with students excited to see the President. "Are you fired up?" Obama asked the crowd, who responded with cheers. He challenged the crowd to encourage others to vote: "What I need this weekend is 20,000 doors knocked on by all the volunteers who are here today."
Two nights before, Temple University brought out another big-name politician to rally for Joe Sestak’s U.S. Senate campaign - former President Bill Clinton. Hundreds of students and faculty, Democrat and Republican alike, braved chilly winds to congregate at the Bell Tower to hear the former President speak. Clinton stayed after his speech to shake the hands of the students, including sophomore journalism major, Raymond Boyd. "Getting to shake the hand of my favorite president, Bill Clinton, was an absolute honor and getting to do so at Temple made it even more special,” remarked Raymond.
Temple also works to bring other events to campus, such as the Sustainability Fair in early November and the semiannual concerts at the Liacouras Center. On October 16, Main Campus Program Board brought Passion Pit, K. Flay, and Black Joe Lewis to campus as part as the Campus Consciousness Tour. This fall, Temple also hosted an episode of Hardball with Chris Matthews and a taping of an education special for A E with television star Tony Danza.
