Weekly Advisor Meet & Greet

Advisor Meredith Klein:

Meredith Klein is one of two advisors for the CPH Therapeutic Recreation program. She has worked at Temple for the past 3 years, and previously worked at Immaculata University and Delaware County Community College as an academic advisor and career counselor. She loves being an advocate for student success at Temple! Outside of work, Meredith can be found wrangling her one year old son, planning her next vacation, attempting (and so far, failing) to be a yogi, and spending as much time as possible with her family and friends.

Study Tip:

Having trouble staying engaged during a large lecture? Try sitting towards the front, better yet the front row. Sitting in front makes it easier to pay attention and see whatever is on the overhead projector. It is also easier to understand the point the professor is trying to make if you can see him or her.

Did You Know...?

Did you know that Temple Football recently released the schedule for the 2016 season? Notable games include a home opener vs. Army at home and a rematch of Temple-Penn State. Check out the full schedule below!
