10 Questions Temple University Needs To Answer

10 Questions Temple University Needs To Answer

Showin' the world I give a hoot.

Oh, Temple University. You interesting staple of our lives. As a student, I have some questions for you.

1. Why have you let the third floor of Mitten Hall fall into such disrepair?

Known as "The Opera Theater," the third floor of Mitten was built as a gym and then became a performance space. It used to be the home of the Theater department until the construction fo Annenberg/Tomlinson. Now, it is the home of the Opera department. It's literally the most beautiful spot on campus, it just needs a lot of love and repair. The floor is a mess, it recently flooded, and the paint is peeling. There are issues on top of these, but trust me when I say that it is my favorite space on campus. It just needs help.

2. Can we get a Wawa?

We don't need three 7/11's within walking distance of campus. One of those should be replaced with something significantly more useful and desirable.

3. Why is it that only music majors can get into Presser past 10pm?

I should be able to practice my flute or visit my boyfriend past 10pm without having to wait for someone to walk out so that I can sneak in.

4. Why do you have to take a mandatory orientation to switch into the Fox School of Business?


5. Why does it cost so much for a student parking pass?

We're already giving you literally thousands of dollars, do we really need to give you more to park our cars?

6. Why can't some of the trucks be covered with meal plans?

Granted only a fraction of the Temple student population has a meal plan, but that would be nice. For the cost of a meal plan lunch, you can get twice the amount of food as you would at a dining hall and it tastes significantly better.

7. What do Temple squirrels really store away for the winter?

The more you think about it, the better that question gets.

8. Why do the dining halls have such limited hours on the weekend?

I'm going to be just as hungry on Saturday at 2pm as I am on Friday, so why can't it be guaranteed that a dining hall will be open?

9. Who the hell designed Anderson and Gladfelter to be so confusing?

Is it just a cruel joke to play on students? If so, that's a new level of low.

10. Where does the Bell Tower Preacher even come from?

Does he really know why I'm going to hell? I don't think so.

5 Tips For Handling A Quarter Life Crisis

Don't know what to do with your life, me either


I thought I had my entire life figured out; career, graduate school, moving. All of it. But maybe I was wrong. I have already been accepted to graduate school, have my internship/capstone figured out but then I was given an opportunity of a lifetime to do a different internship that made me question if my plan was the right plan for me. It was terrifying, stressful and difficult to figure out what to do because it affects the rest of my life. But there are some tips you can do to keep your cool.



Write that shit down. Take a piece of paper and plan out where each path could take you and the steps you need to take to get to each goal on the path. Seeing it all on paper will slow you down and help determine if what you're thinking is even an option.

2.    Talk to people


Talk it out, talk to your friends, your family, your advisor. Talk to anyone you can about your plan. You will hear other people's opinions and thoughts. They may have thought of a factor that you didn't. It will help you better understand your thoughts when you explain your tornado brain to someone else.

 3.    Be Open


This was REALLY hard for me. I talked to probably five different people about the change in life choices and heard both positive and negative thoughts. It is important to be open and listen to the negative idea even if it seems like you're being attacked. It will make you think, are you really prepared for 4-8 more years of school (or whatever else it may be).

 4.    Breathe and Stress Relieve 


YES, this is 100% one of the biggest most stressful decision you have to make but it is also incredibly important that you are patient, and calm throughout the entire process. It is easier said than done, trust me but take five steps back, seven deep breaths and 20 minutes to relieve the built-up stress. Go to the gym, listen to music, paint, do whatever is going to put a smile on your face and calm you. Then come back to the problem with a clear head to think and process all the options.

5.    Don’t be afraid


It is literally terrifying when you feel lost, and unsure of what to do with your life. Especially if your family is super strict and you want to keep everyone happy. But REMEMBER it is YOUR life. YOUR future. You have to worry about what is the best option for you and what will make you happy in the long run. Even if it is harder and going to take longer. Be concerned about YOURSELF and not what anyone else thinks of you.

Quarter life crises are totally normal and not fun. Don't feel like you're alone or a failure for being unsure. It is good to explore all your options and be the happiest you can be. If that takes a little freak out and some stress so is it. Just use these steps to make the best of it.
