“Don’t be in a hurry to do the wrong thing with your life. Don’t choose the safe road. Don’t let somebody else tell you that you are crazy. You get to decide. Make your own judgments, make your own mistakes. Pick your own road.” ~ Bob Woodward 🦉🎓🍒 #ClassOf2019 #TempleMade

“What’s your most memorable experience at Temple?”

“This environment, the city was something I took advantage of because I lived in the suburbs in Jersey. I think going back to that is gonna be hard.”

“For me, meeting different kinds of people - I really wasn’t really expecting to become friends with so many different types and that was a cool experience. Temple is actually as diverse as they advertise it to be, so that’s really awesome.”

Congratulations to all the graduating Owls this week! 🍒🦉🎓 #classof2019

“When I got to Temple, I bombed first semester. I was still transitioning into a young adult and it hit me like a brick. I did crazy shit - I went out partying and I didn’t give a fuck about school. I didn’t realize how important studying was and my parents sat me down for a talk, trying to convince me to go to community college. I knew I could do it - I just couldn’t sit around and be a lazy dumbass all the time because I had to get myself together. I was like, ‘Watch me next semester, if I fail a class, I’ll switch to community college,’ and then I pulled a 3.0 GPA, which is decent for engineering. I was hoping to maintain that trend. Until this semester… everything’s fine except for Calc. I didn’t do well on the final - I needed a 78 to pass the class and I think I got a 70, so I’m pretty certain that I didn’t pass. So I’m gonna have to tell my parents I failed and it’s going to be bringing up that stuff up again. It just hit me hard today. I feel like my parents are gonna look at it and say I’m relapsing and going down that path again and it kills me. But I think everything’s going to be fine. I have that voice in the back of my head that’s telling me, ‘You’ll be fine. Everything’s going to be great.’”

“She brings me out of my shell a lot, which I really appreciate. Danielle’s a really good influence on me. She inspires me to take care of myself and to be a bit more collected, in control of things. My therapist likes her - that’s what a good influence she is.”

“Wendy’s refuses to join the Fair Food Program, which is a legal binding contract that a lot of major fast food companies and grocery stores have signed onto - McDonald’s, Walmart, a lot of big companies. It ensures basic rights for farm workers and the farms that Wendy’s has been buying from are not certified under the Fair Food Program. There are a lot of workers’ rights abuses, specifically tomato farms. We’re trying to organize a boycott of Wendy’s and get them kicked off our Diamond Dollars program until they agree to respect basic human rights for farm workers and participate in the Fair Food Program.”

“People either think we’re volunteers or that we’re in trouble and are doing community service. This is a job for the Temple Grounds department. I pick up trash, pull weeds, whatever they need us to do. I do it most weekdays, and there’s a couple of other student workers. I’ve been doing this for almost a year, I started last May. There’s a lot of trash on campus and the most polluted area - the downstairs area by Ritter - trash all on the sides of there, it gets terrible. We just work on campus... but I’ll be walking off campus and I’ll impulsively want to pick up all the trash.”

“I think Temple should close because of the mumps because it’s putting our health at risk, and it’s highly contagious and I don’t want anybody’s musty mumps in my clean immune system! Temple wouldn’t have to close if people would just vaccinate their kids, it’s 2019, you don’t see people walking around with polio these days, so there shouldn’t be mumps!”

“This quote is by my friend Dori, she’s a poet who goes here at Temple. Her mission is to connect with other African-Americans and people of color in general who have gone through the same struggles. It’s a beautiful collective of beautiful people and that’s the goal - to reach out, to share experiences, to make other people feel comfortable, important, noticed and accepted. Everything is so divided right now in today’s age - I think it’s super important on campus because the black community here is just as divided as anywhere else. I was on the board of NAACP and we had an event where we talked about this - people are just so into clout, or getting recognized within organizations, trying to do their own thing - and we had a program saying that we should be reaching out, collaborating, and helping each other out so that we can all excel rather than some of us excelling - because it’s hard for people of color to excel to the same extent as white Americans.”
