Temple University Debate Team

From Anlin Wang:

You need an opportunity, and this message is that opportunity. When every Ivy League, state school, and community college has a nationally competitive debate team and Temple University has none, there is opportunity. When the second largest school in the state has not attended a single tournament in four years, there is opportunity. You were told that attending this school would make you "Temple Made," and here is the opportunity to make yourself Temple Made and not Temple manufactured. The void that was "Founder of Temple University Parliamentary Debate Team" has already been filled but President, Vice President, Captain, Treasurer, and Secretary are available to those who earn it. But beware, this is not your high school debate. We compete with the best of the best, and tournaments begin as early as September 28th.

Eating Architecture

Paley Library, 1210 Polett Walk

Thursday, October 10 at 2:30 PM

The environments in which we prepare, produce, and consume our foods both reflect and affect those processes. Eating Architecture (MIT Press, 2006), edited by Paulette Singley and Jamie Horwitz, examines the interplay between food and design through twenty original essays. The Libraries and the Department of Architecture at Tyler School of Art welcome Singley and Horwitz to discuss this innovative text, as well as the newest developments in the design and architectural analysis of eating spaces. Alicia Imperiale, assistant professor of architectural history/theory and design in the Tyler School of Art, will moderate.

This program is part of Design Philadelphia!
