Temple bleeds cherry and white. We seem to always be the first to speak ill of Temple when something doesn't suit our needs, but will just as quick be the first to stick up for our school if anyone on the outside speaks ill of it. Like any school, we seek to improve, and it's with out a doubt something that Temple acknowledges and takes to heart as each new building goes up around campus. Student friendliness is key to the landscape of Temple's campus, and no matter when you are out and about campus, something is bound to be buzzing. Whether it's clubs doing a coin shake for a worthwhile cause, or a snow boarding ramp with a full snow mountain built at the Bell Tower, campus is alive throughout the entire year.

There is always something going on here at Temple. From 'Free Food and Fun Fridays' at the student center to the hundreds of student clubs and organizations, it's very easy to find something fun to do. The gym has Zumba sessions, the Honors Program takes random trips into the city, the school's a capella groups and ensembles perform many concerts, and the sports teams frequently have home games. There are honestly so many things going on that I can't attend them all.
