Weekly Advisor Meet and Greet

Meet Advisor Marc

Marc Johnson is an adviser for the students in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders. Marc has been with Temple University and the College of Public Health for just over 5 years. Marc also serves as an instructor for UNVS 1001: First Year Seminar I, where he introduces first-year students to the opportunities and rigors of higher education, as well as to the skills needed to utilize academic resources successfully in college. What Marc really enjoys about advising is that he is able to mentor students that he advises while they are at Temple and watch them work towards graduation to become Temple Made.

Other than Marc’s advising interests, he enjoys cooking and trying new dishes. He is a big Philly sports fan despite the heartache it sometimes puts him through. In Marc's spare time, he likes to read, play video games, attend live sporting events (especially the Temple Owls), and spend time with his family and friends.
