HonorsLounge is the official student blog of the Honors Program at Temple University. All content is written, directed, edited, produced, and everything else by students. The views expressed in the articles are those of the author alone, and are not necessarily the opinions of the Temple University Honors Program.
This site is so much more than just a resource for the Temple Honors community. The creators and contributors of the blog hope that many others will find both relevance and entertainment in the posts contained in these pages. HonorsLounge is for college students everywhere, for the people of the wonderful city of Philadelphia, and anyone anywhere looking for an interesting read or watch. So whether you’re a student looking for a professor recommendation, or you’re a Philadelphian wondering what’s going on downtown, the people of HonorsLounge hope you find something helpful (and more) on the site.

About the Temple University Honors Program
The Honors Program at Temple University is dedicated to providing high-achieving students with enriching academic opportunities, holistic advising, a dynamic and inclusive community, and strong encouragement and support along the way to commencement—and beyond.
It is part of the mix that makes Temple University a wonderful place to earn a degree. The faculty, renowned scholars from all schools at Temple University, lead small seminars in a variety of interesting subjects: Dissent in America, Religion in Philadelphia, Youth Cultures, and Cyberspace and Society (just to name a few).
The staff is dedicated to providing individualized advising on course selection, scholarships, fellowship applications, careers, and graduate schools.
The Program also offers housing in the Honors Living Learning Community in 1300, priority registration, graduate library lending privileges, and leadership, mentoring and programming opportunities through its student organizations.
