Help a fellow Honors student gather research!

Elspeth Vandegrift, a current Honors student, is collecting data for her honors thesis. Please take this 10 minute survey about your academic experiences and choice of major at Temple University. Elspeth is studying why students choose majors and the factors that affect their decision to stay in a major; with a particular interest in why (or why not) people choose STEM-related majors. I encourage people of all past, and current majors to take this survey.

OpenArts, an office within Campus Philly, is hosting a college night at the Barnes Foundation. If you are unfamiliar, the Barnes is an INCREDIBLE collection of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist works all collected by one man, Dr. Barnes. The collection used to be housed in the Philly suburbs, but because of funding and attendance, was moved to downtown a few years ago. The new building is awesome and recreates the original galleries to something like 1/36th of an inch.

In order to get free tickets, you need to create an OpenArts account. When prompted to enter a code, type incampusphilly1516. I spoke to the lady from OpenArts on the phone this morning and they have some incredible free events, from orchestra tickets to museum admission, so its worth getting on their listserv.


Global Temple Conference

Wednesday, November 18th, 10 AM - 4PM

Howard Gittis Student Center, 2nd Floor

The Global Temple Conference was first organized in 2006 to showcase the university's international involvement across the world, promoting globalization as one of Temple's core values. The conference celebrates Temple’s global dimensions by showcasing Temple student, faculty and staff research, programs, and creative activities from around the world. In 2014, over 500 attendees and 100 presenters joined us for Global Temple.

This year's conference will feature a Plenary Session on Europe's Migration Challenge, four concurrent sessions showcasing student, faculty and staff research, programs and films; and a poster session.

New this year, there will also be a Global Information Fair in conjunction with the poster session. The fair provides the Temple community with the opportunity to learn more about the many Temple departments and programs that offer international opportunities. The conference is free and open to the Temple community and the public.

Registration for this event is encouraged but not required. Register here.
