“My biggest pieces of advice for new students would be to make their college experience their own because no two Owls are the same. Also, ask for help when you need it! Temple has so many resources but it's up to you to take the first step.”

Everything that Temple provides is for all of us, from day one and beyond! From campus partners, to people, and all other services offered, Temple has something that can benefit all of us in the long run if we seek it out.”
